Ender and Power Dynamic in The Loverby Marguerite Duras
Write an essay discussing the books gender and power dynamic. This is for a Womens Literature class.
I have also attached a writing sample, because I have used paramount for a previous essay in this class. However, the write did not do a satifactory job, and I got a C on the paper, which is unacceptable. IF I am paying someone to write a paper, it better be a great paper I am spending my money on. Anyone can write a C paper in a few minutes. The paper is really wordy, and its just a really bad paper. But i also need the teacher to think the same person wrote both papers.
We have gone over a ROUGH outline in class. This outline MUST be followed, it is what the teacher gave the class, because my essay topic got chosen as an example. IF you have ANY questions, and i mean ANY questions, then please email me or send a message through here. For lack of better words, I am going to be super pissed if you dont ask questions, and then the paper is completely different than what the teacher and class talked about.
This outline should also make is super easy for you to write. Obviously, if something is missing in this outline then add it . This is just what she gave me in class, so this is just a bare minimum, but she will obviously be pleased that her concepts and ideas are being followed.
