I need a research about Mr. Sherman Alexie and his two texts “Evolution” and “This Is What It Means To Say Phoenix, Arizona” (which is attached as well so you can see them) So, I need a research about Alexie’s life and his books including the two highlighted subjects above.
I wrote this little thesis statement but you can make some changes to it and to the title
The life of Mr. Sherman Alexie and his best-known books
Sherman Alexie is a very talented person. He is a poet, novelist, short story writer and a filmmaker. A collection of many great things that made think about his life career and how did he get to where he is now. We read two of his writings during our class session and I started to read more of his writings online which made think that I should do a research for his life and his most important books, novels, poetry that he has wrote during his lifetime. The lone Ranger and Tonto fistfight are his best-known books which consist of a collection of short stories.
Below are the instructions.
1. Must be based on an assigned literary text or texts. (two files attached of the texts)
2. Should be 6 pages long, typed, 12- point font. Doubled spaced.
3. Must have an original title, for example not just “Kansas” by Stephen Dobyns. Instead, you might have a title like, “The Role of Setting in Dobyns’s ‘Kansas.’” Notice that this title contains the title of the text and the author. Readers immediately know what the essay’s focus will be.
4. Can be based on a response journal entry but doesn’t have to be.
