In The Butcher Boy, are the characters of Francie and Mrs. Nugent representative of larger cultural stereotypes?
I’m submitting and uploading the instructions for my research paper/presentation for my English 116 class in the film that I have chosen. Final drafts will be graded on the quality of “your essays” and ideas, their organization and development, their clarity and style, and how well it’s tied into material that has been covered in class. Final drafts should be free of sentence structure and mechanics errors, and follow standard MLA citation formats for documentation, including in-text citation and a list of works cited. Topics obviously will vary, but all must ask and answer important questions such as, “In The Butcher Boy, are the characters of Francie and Mrs. Nugent representative of larger cultural stereotypes? What roles do the members of the community play in Francie’s unraveling? Exactly how much forgiveness are we expected to show Francie? The film that I have chosen is “The Butcher Boy” directed by Neil Jordan circa 1997. My thesis is going to based on the controversy of religion in said film. I also need to include 1 poem or fiction from the book “Literature Across Cultures” Fifth Edition. I will also be uploading a URL link from my college library database regarding anti-catholic film/subject matter. Other works cited inclusion that may fit in this paper would be appreciated if at all possible and applicable.
