Research paper: “A Wall of Fire Rising” , an exploration of ideas, theories, and interpretations with GIVEN sources.


In this paper, my prof asked me using 4 sources; three of sources are given. The last one I have to choose (it means you can choose). I will attach all sources. I am just an ESL student; therefore, you don’t have to write a very academic paper. I just need a easy-for-read paper with clearly ideas.

There are 3 sources which must be used in the paper:

1. Figures of Flight and Entrapment in Edwidge Danticat’s “Krik? Krak!”

2. “I NEED MANY REPETITIONS” Rehearsing the Haitian Revolution in the Shadows of the Sugar Mill.

3. The Flying Africans(MUST_HAVE).

The last two sources are optional (but you have to pick one):

Oral Narrative as Short Story Cycle: Forging Community in Edwidge Danticat’s “Krik? Krak!”

The Map Within: Place, Displacement, and the Long Shadow of History in the Work of Edwidge Danticat.

If you don’t like the two last sources, just email me. I will find another one.

Here is the details about the paper:
