Discuss accents and dialects in literature – Assignment SolutionWe will discuss accents and dialects in literature. The following are a list of potential authors and works you can use for this assignment. I tried to choose works that you might easily find excerpts online. You are not required to use someone from this list, but this is a good range of different types of accents and dialects. Authors Who Use Accents and Dialects · Mark Twain: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn · Toni Morrison: The Bluest Eye · Trainspotting: Irvine Welsh · Wuthering Heights: Emily Bronte · Tess of the d’Urbervilles: Thomas Hardy · Anything by Shakespeare Initial Response Choose an author and find a brief excerpt online of one of their works. Choose a paragraph or two from their work and paste it into the discussion. Don’t forget to cite it. Then, answer the following questions about the excerpt you chose.
- What accent or dialect did this author use?
- What does the accent or dialect convey about the character(s) in this excerpt?
- Do you think the author uses the accent or dialect effectively? Why or why not?
