Create a table, chart, or other appropriate format to present the fundamental concepts of each theory.

The presentation should accomplish all of the following:

  1. Identify any points that intersect among the theories .For instance, in the case of a female author, Feminist Criticism and Biographical Criticism would most probably have points of intersection.
  2. Note specific concepts that set each theory apart from the others. For instance, Reader-Response Criticism purposely disregards any factors other than the reader’s reactions 3. Include one to two examples of each theory applied to the following selections: By Bret Harte: “The Luck of Roaring Camp,” “Miggles,” and “Tennessee Partner.By Sarah Orne Jewett: “The White Heron” and “The Foreigner.” By Kate Chopin: “The Storm.”By Mary E. Wilkins Freeman: “A New England Nun” and “The Revolt of ‘Mother'”By Hamlin Garland: “Under the Lion’s Paw.”
