Biographical Essay Assignment

 

Essay Structure

 

Introduction

 

  • General introduction of the biography of your choice.
  • Brief summary of its contents.

 

Main Discussion

 

The body of your paper will involve consideration of some of the following questions. Take care to support your statements with examples from the text:

 

Questions to Consider

 

  • Did the biography fulfill your basic curiosity about this historical individual? Did it stimulate additional questions, inspire your curiosity to know more about the individual or the era in question?

 

  • Did this biography cast light on a period of history and enhance your understanding of it? In what ways?

 

  • Did this biography make history less distant, less impersonal? In what ways?

 

  • Did this biography address larger questions – i.e. did it give you the opportunity to study and understand how gender, race, environment etc. shaped history? Did it give you a sense of the larger forces at work in history? The scholarly debates surrounding the period?

 

  • Does this biography destabilize cultural stereotypes or does it reaffirm them?

 

  • Is there anything missing in this biography that you would like to know?

 

  • Be aware of the publication date of the work you have chosen. Is the treatment outdated? If you were to write this biography now, how would you do so? What would you include? How would it have been written 50, even 100 years ago?

 

 

Comparison With Another Work

 

  • Historical individuals are subject to constant reinterpretation. Compare the biography you have chosen with another biography about the same individual or another individual from the same historical period. Which treatment do you think was most successful? Why?
