In this assignment, you will compare and contrast the concept of “nature” from the earliest writings (The Native American creation narratives & the work of Jonathan Edwards) to the later American idea of nature found in the works of writers such as Emerson, Poe, and Whitman.
This assignment should reflect your understanding of the works you’ve chosen to discuss, and explain—based on research—how the earlier work influences the later pieces, and analyze how the literature reflected the culture of the time.
Historical context is discussed in the textbook and can be used as supporting material in your paper.
The Final Paper must include a thesis—this is a statement which you will be supporting throughout your paper. You will make claims and provide evidence to show those claims are true. Support your claims by citing research, quotes, or ideas from other authors. When citing an author, it’s best to explain how the quote supports your original idea; present the quote and then show how that quote advances your claims. (Resources for how to use quotes and other research can be found in the Ashford Writing Center.)
