The first extra credit assignment will coincide with our reading of war stories. Please compare the film Stop-Loss with the characters and events in Hemmingway’s Soldier’s Home, Erdrich’s Red Convertible, and/orĀ  O’Brien’s How to Tell a True War Story. This may be written as a journal entry or formal essay, your choice. This may be submitted up until Monday 12/1. There is a link to the film’s website if you click the title above. The film is excellently done, but I will warn you that it is graphic and can be very upsetting. This is perhaps the war we, as Americans on safe ground, do not see. Please be aware of this before watching the film.
