Discuss the aspects of a “disenchanted” (“lost illusion”) theme in Broken Lullaby (The Man I Killed) (1932)––within the thematic premises of Budd Schulberg’s The Disenchanted. The orientation of the essay should be more focused on the character issues and artistic implications raised by the film, rather than on a deep examination of the novel.
If undertaken, the resulting critical essays must conform to the following guidelines: Critical essay topics or theses must be selected from the list below. The analytical emphasis of the critical papers––five to seven double-spaced pages in length––must focus on the syllabus films screened in class. Again, for emphasis: the paper will be typed and double-spaced––and of sufficient length, typically five to seven pages––to defend and support, with intellectual cogency and research integrity, the thesis statement asserted.
