Write a paper that explores the dynamics of the “character” Equiano in Interesting Narrative of the Life. Keep in mind that, by calling him a “character,” we are not denying the reality of Equiano’s experiences or attempting to paint him as “fictional.” Scholars of autobiography and other forms of life writing have long been aware that even truthful accounts of an individual’s history go through a process wherein a “character” is shaped and crafted out of the existing historical evidence. So your job will be to write a paper that analyzes how Equiano “designs” himself in his narrative. Some questions to get you thinking: what traits define the character of Equiano? What is his character arc? What journey does he take that shapes and defines him as a character? (Perhaps even consider Equiano’s narrative structure in terms of Joseph Campbell’s “Hero’s Journey.”) Who are the villains? What are the obstacles? What do heroism and success look like for the character of Equiano? One thing that might be useful for this paper is to look up the complete text and familiarize yourself with the overall narrative. (You can access this on Project Gutenberg.) Remember: do not just summarize the text. This paper must be thesis driven; that is, it should be centered around a central argument/claim. So do not just respond to the above questions in order. They are just there to get your gears grinding. Keep them in mind as you read the narrative and take notes, then structure your paper around a focused argument/claim.
