Lesbian & Gay Studies
WMS 300 Fall 2001
Lesbians and gay men have written about themselves, creating a deep and rich literature. Two novels, one by a Lesbian and the other by a gay man, are available in the bookstore and on reserve in the library:
Rita Mae Brown. 1988. Rubyfruit Jungle. Bantam Books.
Stephen McCauley. 1992. The Easy Way Out. Pocket Books.
For a maximum of 10% extra credit (for a really swell paper; fewer points for a less swell job) read the two novels (both of them!) and write a paper answering the following questions, based on the stories.
The more detailed and complex your analysis, the better!
DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS extra credit if you cannot manage the assigned work. Do the assigned work first, understand that material, do well on exams. It won’t do you much good to do this assignment but then fail the required tasks.
Feel free to chat with me about the books, the analysis, anything.
