ENG 365 Issues in Literature

posted by .

I have a summary paper to do that is suppose to be 8-10 pages. The problem that I am having is where to get started. This is what the teacher want us to do.

Relate your life in work, social responsibility, and/or individual responsibility to a literary work. What themes do you see in both? What shared experience can you discuss, and what meaning is there to them that can be applied to society at large?

It does not say if it has to be something we read for class or anything and my teacher has not emailed me back yet and this is due tonight by midnight so I really need help to get started and it is worth 450 points.

    When you go over your reading list, put each title in quotation marks and then into www.google.com -- and read any summaries you find to help you remember what the story was about.

    Let us know when you come up with at least one.

    This one?

    Start doing some brainstorming by writing nonstop for about 10 minutes. Start with this sentence (or something similar):
