Topics for the term paper for the course “British Literature II, Second Semester”

1. After reading about Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, write on the topic: “A Self-exploration: The Darkness in My Heart”.
2. After reading T. S. Eliot’s “J. Alfred Prufrock’s Love Song,” can I, as one living in a high-tech world almost one hundred years away from T. S. Eliot’s, still preserve a romantic notion of love? Why or Why not?
3. Virginia Woolf talks about “moments of being” as revelations of reality in an individual’s life. Describe one of such moments in your life.
4. We read part of Virginia’s Woolf’s “A Room of One’s Own” which says about men’s superiority over women. How do you respond to what it says?
5. Have you ever taken a city walk in Taipei? Did that walk provide you with an experience of “epiphany”? If so, describe such a walk while keeping in mind James Joyce’s Ulysses, which is also about adventures in a metropolis leading to “epiphany”.
6. Respond to one of the three postcolonial stories we have read, respectively by
Chinua Achebe, V. S. Naipaul, and Salman Rushdie.
