As Dr. Stanback explains in the lecture video Contexts: Wilfred Owen, Owens goal as a poet was to warn and be truthful about war. In many of Owens WWI poems, he focuses on the realities faced by soldiers battling on the front lines of WWI. In two of his poems assigned for Week 2, Disabled and Mental Cases, he focuses on what happened to some soldiers when they returned home from WWI. Some of the effects of war he describes are physical (bodily war wounds), but many are social, emotional, or mental. In both Disabled and Mental Cases, life is completely transformed for the soldiers who return home from the front lines: they see, think, and feel differently, and their relationships and social identities have fundamentally changed.
Your goal in this discussion board post is to analyze one short passage from Disabled or Mental Cases that illustrates an important aspect of the changed life that veterans faced as they returned home from WWI.
Because both Disabled and Mental Cases explore multiple ways that serving in the military during WWI transformed some veterans lives, its important that you focus onone short passage. In your response, you should discusswhatspecific aspect of the veterans life the passage depicts, and also analyzehowandwhythat changed reality is significant in the contexts of the poem and/or Owens poetry more broadly. How did serving in WWI impact veterans once they returned home?To answer this question, youll need to analyze specific words, details, and/or imagery in your chosen passageand even possibly aspects of form like punctuationto explain their significance.
Importantly, in your analysis youmustmake reference to and build on material from one or more of this weeks lecture videos. Your goal should be to use the lecture material to deepen your analysis of your chosen passage. Many of you will choose to incorporate historical contexts covered in the lecture videos and/ or biographical contexts related to Wilfred Owens own experiences in WWI. Some of you may choose instead to reference material from the lecture videos on Owens poetry.
If you wish, you also may choose tovery brieflyreference other assigned poems by Wilfred Owen in order to deepen your analysis of Disabled or Mental Cases.
1)Choose aQuotefrom Disabled or Mental Cases. Place the quote at the top of the page before your discussion and analysis.
2) Discuss and analyzethe topic according to the above directions (350-400 words)
3) Commentsubstantively on at least three of your classmates posts (minimum 50 words per comment)
1) Quote:Your quote may consist of part of a line from Disabled or Mental Cases, a whole line, or 2 – 3 lines. A quote longer than 2-3 lines should be condensed to include only the most pertinent sections.Please remember: the length of your quotation does not count toward your word count. Place the quote at the top of your postbefore you begin your discussion and analysis.
2) Discuss and analyze:After your quote from Disabled or Mental Cases, you must then discuss and analyzewhat your quote suggests about the ways that serving in WWI impacted veterans as they returned home. Your chosen passage should allow you to analyze the impact of WWI on veteransin precise and specific waysnot in broad generalizations. Your critical discussion must be 350-400 words.
Your post must also show evidence of meaningful engagement with the lectures. Make sure that you extend and enhance, rather than simply repeat, what is in the lectures. Weand your classmateswant to know whatyouthink, and why. In other words, you cant just offer a plot summary or a summary of the relevant lectures; instead, you should aim to use lecture material to extend and deepen your analysis of your chosen passage / poem.
Your post should be well thought out, and relatively free of grammatical errors. Remember that you can also schedule an online appointment with the Writing Center for extra credit, getting help on your discussion post in the process. Consult the syllabus for more information on this extra credit opportunity. You should compose your analysis in Microsoft Word or another word processing program so that you can spellcheck your post before loading it on Canvas. Also ensure that you fully edit your post before you load it into Canvas. When uploading your final post, please cut and paste it in the text box.Please do not attach a separate Word document.
3) Comment:After you post to each discussion board, you must comment substantively on at least three of your classmates posts. Each comment should bea minimum of 50 words, and you must go far beyond saying Great job! or I disagree. Instead, you might indicate if your classmates post taught you something, or made you think about the topic at hand in a new way. If you think a classmates post is strong, explainwhyyou think it’s strong. If you agree or disagree with a classmate, explainwhyyou agree or disagree. You also might want to indicate how your classmates post relates to your own. Do you have a similar or different approach to the text and/or to the topic?
Please note: rude or unprofessional comments will result in an automatic zero for your entire post. We want you to engage with your peers, but in a respectful fashion.
Please remember: the word count (350 400 words) applies to your original post only, not the combined total of your quotation, post, and comments. Your post and comments will be graded together based on a simple 12-point rubric (see thefor details). Grades and comments will be available on Canvas about two weeks after the deadline. If you have any questions about this assignment, you can ask them in the designated Q & A Forum on Canvas.
As with all assignments, discussion posts and comments are due by Sunday 11:59 p.m. (CST). Late discussion posts will be accepted for 72 hours after the deadline until the following Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. All late posts will receive a 1-point deduction for lateness.
