Think in terms of history, culture, and gender. Write an essay in which you discuss how society shapes identity and how that influences a person’s selfperception and ability to achieve goals. In other words, how does society/culture shape who people are, and how does that affect how they see themselves
and what they do in life? Draw on Adrienne Rich and Judith Ortiz Cofer’s poetry and Perkins Gilman, Kincaid, Atwood, and Russell’s stories as support. The
essay must provide specific evidence from some (3 minimum) previously mentioned texts as support. This means you must use summary, paraphrase, and
quotations from the works of literature and not Shmoop or Sparknotes as a replacement?
Need smooth transitions, 5 Or 6 paragraphs (intro-body paragraphs- conclusion)
