Decide what the ideas are in the stories and connect them. Be sure to create a good thesis that shows the connections between the works in one sentence!

Ideas from “The Happy Man’s Shirt”:

The story is about being happy with what you have, and not looking for more.

A king’s son might have: (1) lots of friends, (2) lots of money, (3) power, (4) luxury, (5) a castle – plenty of space.

What did the happy young man have? (1) a beautiful voice, (2) satisfaction for his needs, (3) patience, (4) a warm jacket, (5) good health, (6) good food, (7) shelter, (8) simplicity, (9) integrity.

“Stubborn Husband, Stubborn Wife”

Wife is industrious (gets a lot done every day). Husband is lazy. What do they realize that helps them get back together? The man realizes he had been stubborn and the theft and the anger were his fault. The wife felt embarrassed because the husband was first to apologize.

“The Answer Is No”

Main characters: (1) Badwan Badwari, going to be the headmaster of the school, and in the past the teacher of the miss, the central female. (2) the other character is the central female. She is raped – seduced – by Badwan Badwari. The girl had been inspired by Badwari and maybe felt in love with him. As she became older and older, she avoided love. Badwan Badwari wants to marry her when she is 20 years old. She refuses.

• how to write an interpretive analysis paper FCWR 151_161 Prof. Bethany generated Spring 2012 WRITING AN INTERPRETIVE ANALYSIS PAPER To the FCWR 161-W01 class: what we did today (Wednesday, 2/15/2012), was part of the writing process. It was one part of drafting the paper. I like to call this part brainstorming: making lists of the ideas in the readings that have been assigned, and then relating these ideas together. The most important component of drafting is creating a THESIS. The thesis is the central idea of the paper. The rest of the paper supports the thesis. We can also say that the paper’s purpose is to prove the thesis. When you think about the assigned readings, ideas will arise in your mind. List these ideas. Next, find ways in which those ideas relate. Eventually you will discover a way to relate important ideas from two or more of the selections. This relationship is stated in your thesis. Creating (synonym: deriving) a workable thesis does not usually happen immediately. Usually you have to try out different thesis ideas. Let’s say you are working with two of the readings. If both support your thesis idea, then you can use that thesis to write a paper. YOU WILL PROBABLY CREATE THREE OR MORE UNWORKABLE THESIS IDEAS BEFORE YOU FIND ONE THAT WILL WORK. Trying out different thesis ideas is part of the writing process. Never write a paper until you are sure you have a workable thesis! Possible combination of readings for an Interpretive Analysis paper: “Stubborn Husband, Stubborn Wife” and “The Happy Man’s Shirt” a. Husband’s attitude was a problem: he was lazy and so his wife quarreled with him; she had to do all the work. She was unhappy because she had an unfair burden; he was unhappy because she kept nagging him to do more work and she kept insulting him. At the end, they realized they couldn’t live without each other. The husband changed: he started to do the man’s work and also swept the floor and made breakfast. The wife changed: she was ready to let him keep being lazy because she loved him. b. The happy man did not depend on materialistic things to be happy; he made the best of what he had. c. Ideas: At the end of both stories all the characters are happy with their lives. The husband and wife had no wealth, but they realized they loved each other and so they started treating each other differently: the husband started to help out with chores, and the wife accepted that even if she had to do everything, she still loved him. POSSIBLE THESIS: “We have to learn to be happy with what we have.” Unfortunately, the two stories, when examined together, do NOT prove this thesis because the husband and wife in “Stubborn” had to change before they found happiness. This thesis is NOT usable. d. POSSIBLE THESIS: “ Everyone has the right to choose their own lifestyle; even the significant others, like a wife or a king, should not impact your thinking.” Unfortunately, the two stories together do NOT prove this thesis, because the husband and wife in “Stubborn” did need to consider each other’s feelings in order to be happy. This thesis is NOT usable. e. POSSIBLE THESIS: “Our happiness depends on being grateful for the things that are truly important.” This thesis could almost work. The happy man did not have material wealth, but he did not complain; instead, he made his life pleasurable by using his voice to sing and give himself pleasure. The wife in “Stubborn” thought only about her husband’s laziness, and so she was unhappy; when she thought about why she loved him, she was ready to accept him even though he was lazy. Then she felt happy. PROBLEM: We know that if the husband kept on being lazy, eventually the wife would become unhappy again, because justice is part of a good relationship. Also, a man who is lazy can never truly be happy because he will feel guilty. This thesis does NOT QUITE work. f. POSSIBLE THESIS: “Our happiness depends on being grateful for the things that are truly important, and on treating those things well.” The happy man was grateful for his life; he treated his time well by singing while he rested. The husband and wife in “Stubborn” were not grateful for each other at first. The husband made the wife do all the chores, and the wife insulted the husband. They were happy at the end of the story because they both changed: the wife was grateful to have her husband even if he was very imperfect, and the husband was so grateful to have his wife that he was willing to do both his work and hers. This thesis DOES work. Now that I have a workable thesis, it is possible to write my interpretive analysis paper. Here is a possible introductory paragraph with the thesis placed in its final sentence: All of us want to be happy. To be happy means to feel good. However, because we are humans, achieving happiness is not simple. Our lives have many components, such as physical health, relationships with other people, daily work, material possessions, our feelings about ourselves, our desire to have others think highly of us, a desire for justice, and so forth. Which components are important to our happiness? Which components do not matter so much? These issues are explored in two folk tales: “The Happy Man’s Shirt” and “Stubborn Husband, Stubborn Wife.” In these two tales we can see that our happiness depends on being grateful for the things that are truly important, and on treating those things well. The next steps after creating the thesis and writing the introductory paragraph are: (1) to choose supporting points from the stories, (2) to explain the supporting points using examples from the stories, and (3) to create a concluding paragraph. The concluding paragraph should remind the reader of the thesis and major supporting points, plus add a final thought. United Nations. “Universal Declaration of Human Rights.” UN.org. 10 December 1948. Web. 17 May 2016. http://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/index.html Universal Declaration of Human Rights AN INTRODUCTION On October 24, 1945, in the aftermath of World War II, the United Nations came into being as an intergovernmental organization, with the purpose of saving future generations from the devastation of international conflict. United Nations representatives from all regions of the world formally adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10, 1948. The Charter of the United Nations established six principal bodies, including the General Assembly, the Security Council, the International Court of Justice, and in relation to human rights, an Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The UN Charter empowered ECOSOC to establish “commissions in economic and social fields and for the promotion of human rights….” One of these was the United Nations Human Rights Commission, which, under the chairmanship of Eleanor Roosevelt, saw to the creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Declaration was drafted by representatives of all regions of the world and encompassed all legal traditions. Formally adopted by the United Nations on December 10, 1948, it is the most universal human rights document in existence, delineating the thirty fundamental rights that form the basis for a democratic society. Following this historic act, the Assembly called upon all Member Countries to publicize the text of the Declaration and “to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories.” Today, the Declaration is a living document that has been accepted as a contract between a government and its people throughout the world. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, it is the most translated document in the world. UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS Official Document PREAMBLE Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world, Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people, Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law, Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations, Whereas the peoples of the United Nations have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom, Whereas Member States have pledged themselves to achieve, in cooperation with the United Nations, the promotion of universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms, Whereas a common understanding of these rights and freedoms is of the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge, Now, therefore, The General Assembly, Proclaims this Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.

Stubborn Husband, Stubborn Wife

Stories and tales have the capability to point out issues which are taking place in the
society but the people are not aware of or unable to see them. In relationships, the two parties
may be consumed with the day-to-day activities thus failing to understand the changes being
made by the other spouse. Those daily chores may make the relationship to be hard as the two
parties have no time to sort out their differences which affect their relationship.
Thus, the “stubborn Husband, Stubborn Wife” is a Muslim story which is told by an old
woman in Iran and it was heard by Allan Chinen. The story provides a good opportunity by
creating the power of transforming and healing.

The summary

Every day, the husband would wake up, get dressed, take breakfast, and sit on the bench.
On the other hand, the woman would wake up, fetch water, chop the woods, sweep the floor,

cook the breakfast, and then wash the clothes. This made the two partners to urge every time as
the wife felt that the husband was lazy, the husband felt on the other hand that he had done a lot
for the family and he had to sit back and think deep. When the calf broke out of the bran, the
wife told his husband that he had to go and water the calf as it was man’s work. The man told her
that he had a shepherd who takes care of his animals and he does not have to go around chasing
for the calf. The two decided not to speak to each other so the wife went to visit a friend the
following day early in the morning. The husband was left in the house and he allowed the thief to
steal from the house thinking that the wife had sent him so that he could speak the first one. The
barber also shaved him with the woman selling cosmetics took all the money the man had after
applying lipsticks and powder to his face (Chinen, 1991).

The wife came back and felt that the husband had brought another wife so she talked to
him first. She found out the husband had allowed the thieves to steal because he felt that the thief
was sent by the wife. The wife decided to take care of the calf so she went away. In the following
