online discussion for extremely loud and incredibly close

Part A – Discussion (700-1000 words) Jonathan Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, published in 2005, was one of the first novels to tackle the subject of 9/11 head on. Interestingly, it does not dwell so much on the details of the terrorist attacks but, rather, on the persistence of their aftermath—a young boy’s quest to literally unlock a mystery about his father, who died in the World Trade Center. And yet, the novel doesn’t just stick to this one specific loss. It takes us back to World War II—to Hiroshima, to Dresden—and, by making an implicit connection between this and 9/11, seems to be conveying something about the individual and collective traumatic reverberations of such devastating world events. For this module’s discussion posting, write a concise essay that examines Oskar’s quest alongside that of one other character in the novel. In what ways do these characters try, fail, or succeed to communicate their individual or collective traumas? What are they searching for? Are they able to find it? What, if anything, do they learn? Please support your response with at least four quotations from the novel as well as at least two from the linked sources in this module’s lesson content. Quotations must be properly introduced/integrated into your writing and must be cited according to MLA convention. You should also include some mention of the unique visual and textual elements of Foer’s novel in your analysis. Remember that all works cited must be listed at the end of your posting. Lastly, please create a unique title for your essay and type it in the subject heading.
