Topic: Passing in “The Autobiography of an Ex-colored Man”
Order Description
Hi, I need an essay about “passing” as white in the novel. 2 sources need to be used. I will upload all the docs and assignment details, but here is a brief: Your argument itself will address the following questions:
What is the right way (or best way) to understand the narrator’s decision, in The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man, to choose to “pass” as a white man at the end of the novel? What is his decision supposed to “mean” (about race, identity, individuality, etc.)? How are we to understand it? (For example, should we think he is justified or not? Should we think that he is betraying his race or affirming his individuality? And so on.)What is the right way (or best way) to understand the narrator’s decision, in The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man, to choose to “pass” as a white man at the end of the novel? What is his decision supposed to “mean” (about race, identity, individuality, etc.)? How are we to understand it? (For example, should we think he is justified or not? Should we think that he is betraying his race or affirming his individuality? And so on.).In order to answer this question, you must do (at least) the following three things:
Summarize the relevant events, ideas, and passages from the novel to explain the causes of the narrator’s decision and its impact on his story.
Use examples, evidence, and events from The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man to justify your interpretation of what his passing means and how we should understand it.
Use ideas, quotes, and arguments from the critical articles we read (from Pfeiffer and Japtok and, where relevant, Sen) to support, defend, or challenge your argument
