WATCH: VIDEO – Junot Diaz offers his thoughts on the power and function of art (1 min, 51 sec.)
Diaz argues that one function of art (literature included) is to provoke or disturb us — compelling us to feel and think about uncomfortable subject matter in new ways that may expand our understanding:
Prompts | Writing Task:
Respond to both of the following two questions. Include (only) the boldfaced portion of the questions with each of your responses.
Does “Drown” fulfill art’s function in the way Junot Diaz describes? Why / why not? How? Be direct and specific. Establish your thesis in response to this question clearly and early in your response. To support your position, offer examples, evidence from the story, properly cited. LENGTH: 1 well-developed paragraph.
Titles in fiction are carefully chosen. Why do you think this story is called “Drown?” This question requires you to a) draw conclusions from your close reading and reflective annotation of the story, b) form an interpretation based on insight and persuasive treatment of the evidence and c) compose a thoughtfully composed response. LENGTH: 1 well-developed paragraph. Note: This is not a vague ‘feelings’ question or an invitation to make random guesses or reach for faulty assumptions.
