English Essay

Essay Question: Modern writers such as Ernest Hemingway, Kate Chopin and contemporary writer Zadie Smith were reacting to an increasingly complex and changing world; there was a sense that “new ideas needed to be expressed in new ways,” and often their stories were told in “…very gritty or realistic ways” (Kirszner & Mandell 126-127).   How do Hemingway, Smith, and Chopin’s essays show us a changing world?  Hint:  what are the “new things” they write about, or what is being communicated in a very “gritty, realistic way”? What kinds of changes are they suggesting? Length: 3-4 pages.  You must generously cite from the primary sources, as well as selectively cite from at least two critical readings per author and you must include a works cited page.Hemingway, Smith and Chopin’s Essays:”Hills like White Elephant” Ernest Hemingway”The Storm” & “The Story of an Hour” Kate Chopin”The Girl with Bangs” Zadie Smith
