In a well-researched, organized, and developed essay, examine the situation presented to us in Tim O’Brien’s novel, In the Lake of the Woods. Your task is to generate an argument as to what happened to Kathy Wade based on your interpretation of the novel. In so doing, you will incorporate outside research, along with quotes from the novel, as supporting evidence to make your claim. You can consider a number of scenarios—John killed Kathy and disposed of the body, Kathy simply ran off (perhaps to another man), or even that they concocted a story together to start a new life of their own.
You are also required to incorporate solid academic research into each body paragraph in order to substantiate the claims that you want to forward in regards to Kathy’s whereabouts. You are to choose ONE research topic, and TWO OUTSIDE ACADEMIC SOURCES; but if you deem it necessary to “touch upon” another, you are permitted ONE outside source on a second subject. It is very important to determine what argument you want to make in regards to Kathy’s disappearance because certain research topics will work better than others when making a claim about what happened to Kathy. You will need a total of at least 7 quotes in the final draft.
Here are the subjects to consider for further research in developing your essay:
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, its effects on the war veteran, and how it impacts Kathy’s disappearance.
Parental suicide, how it affects John, and how it impacts the argument you generate concerning Kathy.
The nature of magic and illusion—how they figure into the “disappearance” of Kathy.
The nature of politics and how they impact not only the politician, but also the wife of the politician.
