Journal Two: Identifying Conflict in Two Texts

Read About Journals in ENG125: Introduction to Literature for more information about the purpose and expectations for journals.

This week, you continue writing your journal entries. This journal entry is designed to help you document ideas about conflicts in literature, which will contribute to the information required for the Week Three Draft and the Week Five Literary Analysis. Recognizing conflict is essential to understanding the various commentaries literature can provide.

In Journal One, you identified conflict as it might appear in our everyday world and from other sources. Now, consider the following definition of conflict and how it relates to literature from the textbook or the story/poetry links provided under the requirements for the Literary Analysis:

Conflict is opposing actions, ideas, and decisions that hold a plot together…the struggle that shapes the plot in a story.

Chapters 1-7 of our text contain a number of stories and poems, each of which rely on at least one conflict. Choose two of this week’s assigned literary works and write about the conflicts presented in each of them. In 250 to 500 words

  • State the specific conflicts you see in each work.
  • Describe the characters, forces, and/or entities that are at odds.
  • Explain why you think the conflicts are significant and what meanings/understandings they provide to the texts.
  • Paraphrase, quote, and/or summarize content from the works to support your observations. Don’t forget to add in-text citations for the works you draw from.
  • Explain how each conflict has meaning beyond the work in which it appears. Why is it important to be able to recognize conflict in a literary text and extend that understanding of conflict to the world at large?
  • From the stories you are reading, how much do similar elements of symbolism, metaphor, allusion, and/or allegory apply and add depth to an idea raised in the literature?
    • For instance, in George Orwell’s novel Animal Farm, the pigs and farmers can be seen as symbolic of workers versus managers to make points about class struggles, calling into question the idea of equality in society.
    • In another example, in the “Story of an Hour,” the main character expresses personal conflict in her process of coming to terms with her husband’s supposed death. But this moment symbolizes more than just her personal grief. What does it suggest about societal expectations regarding women and how they should respond to grief? How might those expectations of grief still apply to women’s roles? How does the symbolism show a conflict between Mrs. Mallard and her own desires? Are these “women’s desires” in conflict with current social norms?

    The two short story literary works you neededyo write aboutr are  “A Worn Path” by Eudora Welty and “The Gift of Magi” by O Henry. Both can be found on google

     

     

    A Worn Path

     I felt as though I can understand and relate to the trials that Phoenix Jackson faced throughout the story. In the story Phoenix travel though the woods by foot to fetch medicine for her sick grandson. Throughout her travels she endures many obstacles such as  fatigue, poor eyesight, thorn bushes, barbed wires, and unfriendly people. The fact that she was strong and continued on through it all contributed to the theme of perseverance and dedication.

     

     

    Phoenix experienced both internal and external conflict while on her journey. I already mentions some of the external obstacles such as her poor eyesight causing her so see things that wasn’t there like a dancing ghost and two headed snake. The cold weather, barbed wire, and the hunter were also external conflicts. Internally Phoenix deals with her conscious after stealing a nickel from the hunter which she knows is wrong and her memory loss forgetting her journey at the hospital.

     

    The Gift of Magi

     

    the conflicts they faced in the story like poverty, neither one of them earned/had enough money to buy one another Christmas gifts. Also Della faced internal conflict wondering whether to cut her hair or not.
