Students will write a Critical Book Review (100 points). The CBR is a 1,000-word essay critically addressing the assigned prompt. The College’s bookstore can assist students in purchasing titles. Students must base their CBR on the following prompt and one of the following titles: Is the primary protagonist portrayed in the novel a good mother? In order to effectively address the prompt, students first need to engage in a study on the qualities inherent with good mothering. This can be based on a psychoanalytic, Jungian, humanistic, behavioral, etc. perspective. Then the student should apply their findings to the novel. Choices are limited to:
Lessing, D. (1988). The fifth child. Vintage.
Ward, J. (2011). Salvage the bones: A novel. Bloomsbury.
