Paper #2


Analyze and explain how “power” (from one individual or body to/over another) is illustratively employed in at least three different (+ and/or -) ways by the authors looked at thus far (Joyce, Yeats, and/or Camus) and within the works read thus far (“Araby”, “Easter 1916”, “No Second Troy”, and/or “The Guest”).

Note: You can focus on one type/form of power of your choosing and analyze how it manifests itself in three different texts… or… you can focus on one literary text and analyze how it contains examples/instances of three different types of power relationships.
