The assignment is to use Memoirs of Carwin as a tool for interpreting Wieland. (Charles Brockden Brown, Wieland. Penguin 9780140390797). You might write a traditional research paper that relies on the insights of various scholars and historians whose essays you have consulted. “(Giles Gunn, Early American Writing. Penguin 9780140390872: “Imagination and discovery”,“Settlement and Colonization” (119-146), Anne Hutchinson (158-69), Anne Bradstreet (175-92), Sarah Kemble Knight (269-73), Ebenezer Cook (274-86), Robert Beverly (287-99), William Byrd II (300-303)​, Jonathan Edwards (310-20; 342-47), Benjamin Franklin (348-62), John Woolman (390-95), Gunn, Thomas Jefferson, from Autobiography, from Notes on State of Virginia, and Act for Establishing Religious Freedom (430-43); George Washington, from Farewell Address (417-29); Jefferson, First Inaugural Address (443-47), and Abigail Adams (502-509), Judith Sargent Murray (548-55), ​Elizabeth Ashbridge (374-86), Phillis Wheatley(565-69)” ”(Cabeza de Vaca, The Account: “Introduction” (11-20), “The King,” “Proem,” chs. 1-12 (26-57)”, “(Kathryn Z. Derounian Stodola, Women’s Captivity Narratives.

For instance, you might choose to write a response from Clara, in her own voice, to what Carwin says in his Memoirs. Or you might adopt Carwin’s voice and viewpoint to answer Clara’s views about his deeds and motives.
