English 215 Midterm Review Part I. ID's-For the Identification portion of the midterm, you must list the title of the text, the author, the narrator, what the passage is about, and why it is important. For example, ""Exchanging Hats" by Elizabeth Bishop, Speaker:nephew or niece Passage is about an uncle who wears many hats. The passage is important as it explores gender roles. ID's can be done in bullet points Part II. Close Readings- For the close readings, you must connect the passage to the work as a whole, pay attention to style, and list a link between style and content. For example, "Sonny's Blues" "But Something deep and watchful in the child knows that this is bound to end, is already ending. In a moment, someone will get up and turn on the light. Then the old folks will remember the children and they won't talk anymore that day. And when the light fills the room, the child is filled with darkness." This passage relates to the work as a whole by illustrating the concept of the moment children begin to understand reality; the moment they understand peace ends. Sonny's feelings towards his brother throughout the whole text relate to this passage, as his brother was once innocent until his peace stopped. The style of this passage uses intense imagery to pack such a simple instance of people sitting around a living room with many emotions and themes. The use of "light" and "dark" to depict this passage from innocence to reality, clearly depicts Sonny's emotions. The style and the content go hand in hand, as the style of imagery depicting such emotion fully encapsulates the emotion taking place, in this passage and throughout the whole work. Part III. You will either have to write an essay about character development, experience of characters' journeys vs. Those who stay in one place, or the different experiences of male and female characters You must study all works and authors studied thus far for the midterm
