Olaudah Equiano, The Interesting Narrative and Other Writings.
Write a reaction paper on the above book, Olaudah Equiano. Reaction papers are not long (500-600 words) and do not need to cover the WHOLE of the reading. That said, they DO need to show your familiarity with some major issue in the assigned reading. So, pick a section or episode or topic or theme that in your judgment can reveal broad patterns in the reading. For instance, you should pick something to write about that is not peripheral to its overall action or meaning.
In the extensive Powerpoints on his book that I have attached, I present many discussion points that you are free to follow up in your reaction paper. Any of them could provide a take-off point for developing your own insights. Obviously, you can’t just restate those discussion points—you will need to develop them further using episodes, quotations, and specific interpretive moves that demonstrate your individual understanding of the book.
