Question Description

Using a theory presented in this module, offer a cultural studies analysis of either Edgar Allan Poe's "The Purloined Letter" or Charlotte Perkins Gilman's "The Yellow Wallpaper" in a full paragraph or two.

You will want to choose one theory among the many discussed here and use it consistently and coherently.

For example, a New Historicist reading would put one of these texts in direct dialogue with a historical text and treat them both equally (unlike traditional literary criticism). A Marxist analysis, on the other hand, would center on how concepts such as commodification, exchange value, or interpellation play out in the text.

In your journal assignment, be sure to address the critical elements found in the Journal Guidelines and Rubric document by summarizing the main features of the literary theory, applying the theory to the literary text, and explaining how the story is shaped by the theoretical lens.
