This is the first of four primary essays that ask you to apply what you have learned thus far in the Humanities course. You are expected to complete the essay by the deadline. Late compositions cannot be accepted. Your essay must use at least 500 words and be structurally and grammatically competent. Please be aware that Canvas automatically scans your work for plagiarism, so make sure that your work is in your own words, and any source materials used are cited. These instructions are not optional. To receive full credit, strict adherence to the instructions is required. The first few chapters of True Grit introduce us to the main characters, the surroundings, and the primary plot. Read up until the main protagonist, Mattie Ross, completes her spirited negotiation with an auctioneer named Stonehill and meets Blackie the horse. Once you have completed the reading, answer the following essay question: Many of the characters in TRUE GRIT share a love of action and a desire to be out on the unsettled plains, away from the confines of polite society. How does this wanderlust manifest itself in Mattie Ross, Rooster Cogburn, or La Boeuf? Is Mattie more comfortable away from civilized society?* In what ways does True Grit embrace or reject Modernist ideas? How does the world of True Grit compare to Freud’s (or Jung’s) point of view on civilized society? Keep in mind that the Humanities are a subjective system of observation or thought. There are no “right” answers but there are uninformed or ill-thought-out answers. Bear in mind that context is key when analyzing any cultural artifact. No work was ever completed in the total absence of culture, history, tradition, or political/religious influence. Your conclusions may not be “right” but if they are well-thought-out and exemplify your effort to apply your knowledge thus far, then you will have written a good paper.
