After reading the suggested reading, discuss women as “femme fatale” and the theme of vengeance in “Dojoji” (I will attach) and Thousand Cranes.
This should be analytical in nature (please donot re-tell the whole story) of roughly 2,500 words or 10 to 12 pages, typed, double-space plus footnotes of biblio if necessary. Except for quotations, all written works must be in a YOUR own words and represent original thought or thoughts derived from reading primary or secondary materials. However, the ideas of others as well as quotations must be properly attributed; more than six words copied from another source without proper reference constitute plagiarism. Needed for research purposes. Please get it done by 12th of April.
