The Opposite of Loneliness


Part 1

Step 1: After reading Keegan’s “The Opposite of Loneliness,” challenge Keegan’s assertion that there is no word for the opposite of loneliness. What word is a suitable antonym for loneliness? How does the word you choose articulate the “elusive, indefinable” feeling Keegan describes?

Part 2

Step 1: Everyone defines abstract terms differently. Happiness to one person may mean something entirely different to someone else. Write an extended definition poem of an abstract concept (good, evil, guilt, innocence, right, wrong, loneliness, etc) to get readers to understand YOUR definition.  Use any poetic form that will substantially explain the abstract concept (This means no haikus…). If you want your poem to rhyme, that is fine.  Rhyming, however, is not a requirement.  Make sure to use CONCRETE details in your poem (Details that call upon the five senses). 

Step 2:  Respond to at least one other poet.  Do you agree or disagree with your fellow poet’s definition? Explain your response.  Is your fellow poet’s poem too abstract? How could they develop the concrete details in their writing to make their definition clearer to readers? 

Antigone And Juliet

Analyze two plays we have studied this semester. To support the thesis statement, you will need to provide ample textual evidence from the two plays you choose. Specifically, you need to have at least three quotes from different parts of each play (so total 6 quotes) to serve as your material for analysis and as your examples to support your argument. You should come up with your own choice of examples for the essay by going back and analyzing the plays again; you should not consult online sources, secondary sources, or classmates in coming up with your ideas and choices of quotes.

should be two pages long


Juliet speaks in multiple discourses. She is able to speak “Petrarchan”—she co-authors a sonnet with Romeo out of the air when they first meet. To her parents, she speaks in riddles. Specifically, she uses amphiboly; she makes statements that can be interpreted in opposite ways. To us, the audience, though, she speaks in soliloquies in which she engages in self-debate, the hallmark of the Shakespearean tragic hero. Both Antigone and Juliet are the tragic heroes of their respective plays in that they exhibit the following attributes: a.) willingness to die for a great cause, b.) purposeful disobedience of an authority figure, c.) awareness of answering to a higher moral power than an earthly authority, d.) demonstrating  courage by overcoming fears and doubts, e.) showing bravery by taking action, and f.) choosing to act alone.

Final Draft Due Week 9 and worth 300 points 

Instructions: Your final draft should reflect the work you have done to develop your ideas, identify counter perspectives, gather credible research, and draft your essay. You will use feedback from your instructor to review, revise, and edit your draft to ensure that you submit your best work. 

To ensure your final draft is different from your rough draft, follow the steps below. 

Step 1 Revision Using your instructor’s feedback as a guide, remove content that does not support your points, and add content where you need more support or where your rough draft was incomplete. Refine all of your content to improve clarity, idea development, flow, and the overall persuasiveness of your communication. Chapters 8 and 9 of your Webtext will provide guidance to help ensure you submit your best work. 

ENG215 Writing Activity 4 (rev. 2018-12)    2 

Step 2 Editing After you finish your content, review your paper to make sure your sentences are clear and error free. Pay attention to grammar, mechanics, punctuation, and formatting. You do not want to distract your audience or negatively impact your credibility with small mistakes. Chapter 9 will provide you with guidance to help you avoid these mistakes.  

Section 3 Feedback Reflection Remember to include your feedback reflection after the reference  page. Follow the steps below:  1. List the feedback you received on writing activity three 2. Explain how you used feedback from writing activity three to write activity four 3. Discuss how the feedback on writing activity three will help you with future writing. 


Some suggestions: 

Paragraph 3 (There is a lot to learn …) is repeated twice. I found the same info in paragraph 2 too. Please avoid repetition. 

You have provided a lot of reasons why taking a gap year after high school is useful. What your paper needs is evidence in the form of data. Please research to find statistics on this. If there are any human interest anecdotes of someone who has taken a gap year, please include that too.

You have included a counter perspective to your stand. You also need to offer a rebuttal to the counter argument thereby reinforcing your claim. 

Provide a title that is specific and reflective of your stand. 

Revise the paper to provide smooth transitions between ideas/paragraphs.  

Double check citations. 

hypothetical situation

 You will upload/submit the ROUGH DRAFT (at least 2 double-spaced pages) 

you will first introduce the essay using one of the techniques we discussed (or will discuss) in class: careful, vivid description of a scene, object, person, event, or other item associated with your topic (CDSO);( “Carefully Describe a Scene or Object.”)
 short sentences or sentence fragments for effect; mystery; hypothetical situation; thought-provoking quote or statement with explanation (epigraph); anecdote; reference to historical event; or other strategy designed to create interest. Your introduction should not be more than a paragraph.

Next, include as the last sentence of this paragraph an arguable, clearly-worded, specific thesis that states your position and briefly forecasts the major areas you will cover in your essay (see class notes re: “complete” thesis statements).

Third, you will support your thesis using AT LEAST THREE ACADEMIC/ LIBRARY SOURCES, quoted or paraphrased, with your own analysis of each piece of research, and cited parenthetically in correct MLA format. Don’t forget your “Works Cited” page at the end of the essay. Each supporting paragraph should have a clear topic sentence that relates to your thesis, include research to support the topic sentence, and include your own analysis of the research.

And finally, conclude the essay using powerful rhetoric to leave the reader convinced! You may want to save one of your most thought-provoking, gripping, or persuasive quotes for your last paragraph. You might also want to refer back to your introduction. And you definitely will want to rephrase your thesis so that is worded differently than in your introduction.


  • A minimum of two full pages long for the rough draft
  • A minimum of four full pages long for the final draft

  • Correct use of MLA format (see handout/ MLA handbook), INCLUDING THE THREE “CARDINAL RULES” OF MLA FORMAT. (See class lecture notes.)
  • Edited and proofread (typos/ carelessness will reduce your grade)
  • Give your essay a tantalizing title that hints at your thesis.

The Eddy Zheng Story

Films: a) Breathin’: The Eddy Zheng Story, b) Marion Wong’s story, c) Mississippi Masala

For discussions leading to mid-term assignments, I suggest, we focus on the following questions–perhaps, they all are inter-related:

1. Asian-American identity in cinema: what makes an Asian-American film? (made by Asian-Americans only or can we include films on Asian-Amercians made by non-Asian-Americans, for example?) What is really at stake? Identity and authenticity? (We discussed the problem of identity and authenticity in several sessions, so this should be helpful.)

2. How do we associate Asian-American forms of identity with the problems of immigration and survival in cinema? Is it enough to survive or must one learn to live the prejudices and fight against them? Should we all become social justice warriors regardless of one’s affiliation and status? Do you know of any such story? Share, please!

3. Is the treatment of Eddy Zheng in “Breathin'” an anomaly or a common occurrence? This was and still is a brilliant question to ponder. Thanks to Peter, Andrew, Marion, Mike, Gemma, and many others for raising this question in different forms in the last class.

4. Is there a way to think about Angela Davis’ essay on the PIC as relevant to other experiences? Can you please reread the essay and bring home the salient points? 

5. If you were to undertake a media project on one of the community identities and issues, how would you frame the narrative? Where would you direct your focus, literally and cinematically?

6. If you were to write about the problem of PIC, what are the possible narrative strategies especially in relation to the essays and articles you have read? Would you base your views on interviews or historical archives or critical writing or data alone? Justify.

7. Can we think of non-mainstream strategies and tactics for countering the narratives of power? Is any of the film doing any such thing?

In each of these questions, you are free to pick and choose, of course. You are also welcome to interlink one question with the other if you so choose. Also, you are welcome to add more questions here. 

And finally, I will try and put the names of the other films you might as well watch later tonight.

thank you!

Additional images for Analysis

“Additional images for Analysis” p.g. 171

Note the expression on the mother’s face, the position of her body, and the way she interacts with her children. What sorts of relationships are implied? Why is it significant that she does not look at her children or at the camera? How is the effect of the photographs altered based on how much we can see of the children’s faces?
