Request Description

Choose a piece of popular fiction—novel, short story, graphic novel, or comic book—and research the material through the lens of popular culture and its effect on society. 


Prepare a 700- to 1050-word analysis that includes a critique of that work and a commentary on the influence of the work in popular culture. Address the following:


·         Identify the literary production you chose to focus on. Provide a brief overview of what the piece is about, the author’s background, and how the piece fits or does not fit with other literature of that genre.


·         What is the cultural significance of the work? Reflect on whether the piece is considered economically successful or if it has fan followings. 


·         What cultural values are reinforced or challenged in the work? 


Consider the following examples: 


·         How the Harry Potter novels are encouraging young adults to read

·         Does the Twilight series reinforce or challenge traditional gender roles?

·         The quest for truth in the novels of Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons 


Review Ch. 1 in the text for background on developing a literary analysis.


**Include at least two scholarly references.
