migration and exile in The Reluctant Fundamentalist and Breath, Eyes, an

SOURCES ARE THE BOOK “THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST” by Mohsin Hamid and the book “BREATH, EYES, AND MEMORY BY Edwidge Danticat( i didn’t provide this). The other source is Reflections on exile which I provided.
In the bottom is the directions I had to follow. I just need you to edit somethings my professor said needs work. I will provide the essay with the editing notes.
For this assignment, you will compare the representation of migration and exile in The Reluctant Fundamentalist and Breath, Eyes, and Memory, while using Edward Said’s “Reflections on Exile” as a theoretical point of reference. Begin brainstorming and outlining the assignment after you have finished reading “How to Write a Comparative Analysis” (Harvard College Writing Center- https://writingcenter.fas.harvard.edu/pages/how-write-comparative-analysis).

Your essay should be at least five pages, double-spaced, with a proper heading, a 12 pt Times New Roman font and a Works Cited page at the end. It should include the following:

Introduction (1-2 paragraphs): should make the frame of reference clear. Edward Said’s “Reflections on Exile” will be our frame of reference, so you may want to begin by quoting his definition of exile as an “unhealable rift between the self” and its “true home.” You should also give the reader a one-sentence summary of each text, including basic information about each novel, its main themes, its date of publication and the time period and countries in which it was set. You also want to state your thesis, in which you should address your rationale for comparing both novels (what they have in common) and focus on the contrast between the representation of exile and migration in the two novels. Your argument should address how each novel answers the following question: Is the rift between the self and its “true home” “unhealable”? In other words, is Said’s definition of exile congruent with one or more of these texts? Or is it complicated by one or more of these texts?

Body (8-10 paragraphs): Should alternate in your analysis of each text, linking your discussion of each with transition words: Like, Unlike, Similarly, Whereas….

1.Historical context: Give the reader the relevant historical context necessary to understand exile and migration in the two novels. In the first paragraph focusing on The Reluctant Fundamentalist, you will want to address relations between U.S. and Pakistan before and after 9-11: Pakistan’s economic dependency on the U.S., the effects of the Glenn Amendment and the Pressler Amendment on its economy, the War on Terror, etc. In the second paragraph focusing on Breath, Eyes, and Memory, you will discuss the effects of the Duvalier regime on women’s rights in Haiti, including their right to freedom from sexual assault. Donette’s article is an excellent source.

2. Point-by-point analysis of each text, linked by transition words between paragraphs. You will want to investigate the following points:

1) the source of exile, or underlying reasons why each protagonist is estranged from the native country. (1-2 paragraphs for RF, followed by 1-2 paragraphs for BEM)

2) attempt to overcome exile/significance of return to native country (1-2 paragraphs for RF & 1-2 paragraphs for BEM, linked by transition words).

3) the ending of each novel (1-2 paragraphs for RF & 1-2 paragraphs for BEM). You will want to consider the question of whether or not the protagonist has healed the rift in his or her cultural identity.

Conclusion (1 paragraph): should NOT restate your argument; rather, you should explore the implications of your analysis. See “Ending the Essay: Conclusions,” Harvard College Writing Center (https://writingcenter.fas.harvard.edu/pages/ending-essay-conclusions). For instance, you might want to think about how reading these novels side-by-side shows how class and gender affect the experience of exile and migration.

You will be graded on the strength of your argument and your ability to support it with textual evidence. Style, organization and sentence structure also count. If your paper has so many grammatical errors that its meaning is lost on me, the reader, I will not accept it.
