Pick ONE of the following topics to answer in your essay
1) Discuss how Jackson Katz’s concept of the “tough guise” of masculinity is conveyed in one of the following texts: i) “Who’s For the Game?” by Jessie Pope; ii) Horace’s Ode; iii. Timothy Findley’s The Wars. Ex. How does the poem or novel convey men’s efforts to uphold a facade or persona of toughness or hegemonic masculinity?
2) Discuss how Wilfred Owen’s “Dulce Et Decorum Est” or Timothy Findley’s The Wars challenge the glorified image of soldiers found in war propaganda? What specific strategies does the author use to convey an anti-war message?
3) According to Evan Caris in his discussion of WWI propaganda, “war . . . became the greatest manifestation of masculinity. It offered men a way to have adventure, put their fitness on trial, and protect women” (5). In your essay, discuss how Jessie Pope’s “Who’s for the Game?” supports this claim.
4) Using supporting evidence and specific examples, examine Timothy Findley’s novel The Wars or Wilfred Owen’s “Dulce Et Decorum Est” by focusing on ONE major theme or idea. For example, you might choose ONE of the following: i. Loss of innocence, ii. Masculinity (gender performance), iii. Sexuality iv. Trauma and its aftereffects, vi. Physical and psychological effects of war; vii. Soldiers: Victims or Perpetrators?
The above are the instructions for the essay, you can pick any of the four topics, although I think the one I suggested was probably the easiest as it requires the least amount of reading. I have also attached the poems/ novels required. Thank you!
