Close Reading/critique of Jorge Luis Boges short story The theme of the traitor and the heroin his book collected fictions
The close reading essay should focus on the text itself, and although theoretical perspectives can help with your reading, you should not allow a critic/theorist to take over the paper. No outside research is required.
Please use Borges Book Collected fictions. You can find the story on pages 142-146 of this book.
The essay should be 6 pages in length.
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
Thanks so much.
