I need a 5 page writing about reading two short stories and their internal and external conflicts. The writing is due by 3/4 at midnight so please get it to me before then. The writing needs to be in MLA format. if you have any questions feel free to contact me. I will attach the rubric.
Conflict is the behavior where individuals differ in actions, thoughts, and feelings. It is a big part of us. It is a thorn in the flesh, and overcoming it takes a lot of strength. In fiction most literary works have both internal conflict (individual self) and external conflict (individual v individual, society, or nature). Additionally, one can often find that a character’s internal conflict is linked to an external one. Choose two of the readings we discussed in which both an external and internal conflict are evident to you and write a five page essay on this.
Literary works ( choose two).
Kate Chopin’s “Desiree’s Baby”
Charlotte Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper”
William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily”
