Explore a theme in Mary Karr’s writing.


This assignment will allow you to explore a theme in Mary Karr’s writing. You will identify a theme and trace that theme in the text, supporting it with ample textual evidence (close reading of details, passages, and scenes form the book). There will be lots of class time spent discussing themes and approaches to the text – students are actively discouraged from reading secondary sources about the stories.

The essay needs to be approximately three to four pages double-spaced, Times New Roman 12 inch Font. It will need to correctly cite and/or paraphrase passages from the text in correct MLA form.
