This intruction is for Mary D.
My teacher, Nancy, checked the essay and she gave the comment as following to rewrite the essay:
Heart of a Samurai is good, but the
language used is much too formal. This is not how modern speakers write
or phrase things when talking. I’ve left comments in the paper about
To help you develop a sense of how people actually speak and write, I
would suggest reading as much as possible in newspapers, novels set in
the modern era, and watching English language TV and movies (again, ones
set in the present day). You have a real focus on things that took place
a long time ago (100+ years), which means that you are, I think, getting
a skewed view of modern English vocabulary and usage. All of this has a
poor effect on modern fluency. You will be understood, but won’t sound
natural to native speakers.
Keep writing!
I will attached Manjiro and Whitfield TRACKED. docx to help you to understand the situation.
Please read the comment carefully to rewrite the essay.

Prompt 1: Paraphrase – in your own words, not those of someone on the Internet –

Prompt 1: Paraphrase – in your own words, not those of someone on the Internet – “The world is too much with us” by William Wordsworth. Paraphrase the poem line by line. You should have 14 lines of prose in your own words. Pay close attention to the details – look up Proteus, for example, if you do not know who he is.
After your paraphrase, write a paragraph summarizing how the speaker of the poem wants to live and what he hates about the way people live around him.
Using the picture of Christian life established in Romans 12, explain where the poem’s vision aligns with the Christian life and where it deviates from the biblical model.
Requirement: Minimum of 200 words

Your literary analysis should be approximately 5 to 6 pages. You should choose an author that we have studied so far in this class and one of their works of literature. Create a thesis statement for your analysis and prove it through examining plot structure and literary devices. You may use 2 – 4 sources ( not including the actual text) – citing them all within the text of the paper and including them in a works cited paper. If you quote from the text – and you should – you must cite properly and include that text in the works cited. Your thesis statement and outline must be submitted and approved before you turn in the final paper. This will be due by midnight on Monday, June 27th.

Module Objectives
In this unit, students will have the opportunity to begin working towards the following goals:
Through reading and analyzing Tolstoy’s novella, students will take time to consider the way that literature can offer insight into who we are as individuals, how we make choices in our lives, and how our lives our defined as “good” and “valued” by the impact that we make on the people we leave behind;
In discussions, students will write about the way the culture in which we live may influence our understanding of the self–whether that be for good or ill–and, thus, explaining how literature is reflective of the way society shapes the human experience;
By responding to others in discussions, students will evaluate their own assumptions about the challenges we face in living a life that is heroic and will consider others’ analyses of Tolstoy’s approach to the topic in order to come to a conclusion about the meaning and significance of the literature we’re reading in this section.
Joseph Campbell explains that a dragon figure represents our own greed. He says, “Psychologically, the dragon is one’s binding of oneself to one’s ego, and you’re captured in your own dragon cage. ‘Killing the dragon’ is getting rid of your own fears. The real dragon is in you; it’s your ego holding you in, focusing on ‘what I want, what I believe, what I can do, what I think I love, and what I regard as the aim of my life.’ It might be too small, that which pins you down, if it’s only that which the environment tells you to do, then it certainly is pinning you down. The environment, then, is your dragon as it is reflected within yourself.”
In “The Death of Ivan Ilyich,” Leo Tolstoy presents readers with a protagonist who has literally risen to the peak of his life and then suffers a complete fall from that peak into the depths of the human heart to try to answer the question, “Did I live a good life, in the end?” “The Death of Ivan Ilyich” was Leo Tolstoy’s novella through which he provided readers with his commentary on the moral and social issues that he saw in the world around him.
Look first at the environment in which Ivan Ilyich lives, including the people and places that make up that environment. What flaws in that society and environment does Tolstoy reveal in the story? What is the “greed” that these people exhibit? What moral judgment does Tolstoy seem to pass on that society?
Why does Tolstoy start the story AFTER the death of Ivan Ilyich? What actions and attitudes do we see in Ivan Ilyich’s friends and family members that set the tone for the story? How do these characters seem to think or feel about death, and how does that set up a contrast between them and Ivan?
Identify internal and external conflicts in the story. What are Ivan’s reactions to his own dying? Before his death, how does Ivan’s ego “hold him in” and keep him trapped in his “dragon cage?” What are the trappings of his life? How does his illness and impending death change that? Who or what is the internal demon or external monster that Ivan Ilyich must face? Is he successful in the struggle? Explain how Tolstoy develops a journey toward death which similarly becomes a journey toward illumination.
Look at the structure of the story: how does Tolstoy use time and the passage of time in the novella to create the effect of time slowing down as the story moves towards Ilyich’s death? Why would he want readers to recognize that passage of time? How is it connected to the mental and emotional journey that Ilyich is taking?
How is Gerasim a foil to Ivan in the story? What purpose does he play, and how does he help to develop one of the themes of the story?
Consider the allusions to Christ in the story. Which character(s) might be seen as Christ figures? What sort of symbolism is at play to create the allusion? What does Tolstoy ultimately want to communicate to his readers about the way that they live and how it is connected to the struggle before death? Do we successfully get rid of our own fears when facing death?
Finally for readers in modern America, what do you think we can gain from reading a story like this? How might have/did reading this story make you consider your own sense of mortality? How do you think people will remember you after you die? How do you hope they will remember you (this answer may be different from that in the previous question)?
