write a 20 page journal article/research paper on William Faulkner and one of his novels

  

I have to write a 20 page journal article/research paper on William Faulkner and one of his novels, Absalom! Absalom!; HOWEVER, for right now, I only need a TWO PAGE INTRODUCTION for the article. Since it is just the introduction, I don’t need a works cited with it (unless you decide to use a quote from one the provided sources in my bibliography). I have a vague outline for the intro but not necessarily what I want to say which is why I need you.I have attached my research proposal. I have also attached my annotated bibliography so you have 16 of the sources I will be using to support my argument. The gist of my research is an analysis of Faulkner’s characterization of his female characters in the novel in general but also based on the actual (American) Southern patriarchal society’s treatment of women in the 19th century which is the setting of the novel. It also covers how Faulkner shows this treatment and subconscious ideology of women and how it is internalized by the female characters. The question that drives my argument is whether William Faulkner is misogynistic, is he treating/portraying the women in poor lighting to reflect the real treatment and status of women in 19th century (American) Southern society, or is he just bad at portraying women as many critics have said before? My essay topic offers a fresh perspective to the study area because it looks at the female characters from a psychoanalytic stance and will analyze not only the main character, Rosa, but also Judith and Ellen who are not nearly as studied by other scholars.Note: 1) I was not sure if Classic English Literature is the correct subject area for this assignment. 2) I also did not know whether to put a number for the sources down below since my introduction is not required to have quotes.Key words: Faulkner, Absalom! Absalom!, Southern American society, feminism, historical, psychoanalysis
