2 readings that must be read to complete the assignment: The Yellow Wallpaper & The Story of an
Hour. The prompt for this paper is: “These stories share a similar theme and were both written in
the 1890s. What social commentary are they making? How does each story differ in how they make this
commentary?” It is completely up to you as a writer to decide to answer “what social commentary are
they making” and “how does each story differ in how they make commentary.” The format is MLA, must
be 1.5 pages(try not to go over this), and place the 2 readings in the work cited page. If you have
any questions or clarifications, just ask.
