ENG 125 Final Exam Fall 2019

NAME _______________________________________ Total Score: _________ ENG 125: Literatures of Identity – Final Exam Fall 2019 200 points total I. Define/Connect/Explain (105 points total/5 points per question) Points for this section: _______/105 Directions: For each question in this section, you are given a term, concept, or theory that we have covered in class. For each one, you will need to do three things: ● Define—Provide a definition, paraphrasing in your own words what the term means. I realize it is difficult to write an “original” definition, but what I want you to avoid is simply repeating back the wording that I have used. I want to see some evidence that you have processed the term and have an understanding of what the term means, rather than just the ability to be a parrot. ☺ ● Connect—List a work of literature we have covered in class (story, novel, essay, article, poem, song, film, TV episode, video) that you have identified as having a connection to the term/theory/concept. ● Explain—Provide a short-answer explanation (2-3 sentences) that describes the connection you have made between the work of literature to the term/theory/concept. 1. For this question, choose any of the seven theses of monster culture that Jeffrey Jerome Cohen identifies in his essay, “Monster Culture (Seven Theses)”. Thesis Number ______2___ Definition: The monster always escapes. In other words, the “bad guy” is able to do bad things but get away with it, and sometimes even repeat what it is doing without getting caught. Connected Literary Work: Black Mirror - White Bear Explanation: In this episode, I believe the real monster to be the actors punishing the main character. They torture her, let others watch and encourage her, and repeat this continuously. While the criminal should receive punishment, the punishment is cruel and usual. It is pushing it too far. The real monster is not the criminal, it is the actors. They are the ones who get to hurt her repeatedly and get away with it day after day. 2. the uncanny valley Definition: The fear of things that have human traits but are not human
