Here is an idea for Essay one. I will most likely be adding more because I am never satisfied by my first idea.
1.) The physical surroundings in The Scarlet Letter play a very controversial role. A relationship seems to form between the events that occur and the location that they occur in. For example civilized behavior takes place in the wilderness, although one would think it would take place in the town. My conclusion could state what this relationship says about the characters/puritains Hawthorne has chosen for his novel.
2.) In Harris's Nights with Uncle Remus, Uncle Remus's informal dialect suggests that he is uneducated; however through the author's use of point of view, juxtaposition, and structure, the reader can deduce that Uncle Remus is actually the experienced educator in the story.
(POV--> his interpretations, Juxtaposition-->young white boy/old black man, structure-->teaches a lesson after every tale)
