What is the overall or general character of TS’s transformation?

The only source that is needed is the movie you have to watch to write this essay. Which is IRON MAN made in 2008.


3. Essays should be argumentative and analytical in style. This means several things:

a. You should have a clearly articulated thesis, that is, some position that you take on the issue.

b. You should provide an argument or other evidence/analysis to support the thesis. Arguments may be inductive or deductive in character and the main premises of those arguments should be clearly identified (though they need not be numbered).

c. Arguments should cite specific evidence from the film, whether having to do with particular scenes, actions, characters, or other features, where relevant (e.g. narrative structure, physical ambience, music, color, and so on). If you are using a DVD player that provides a count, it is sometimes helpful to give the relevant numbers for where in the film this evidence appears.

d. Arguments should always be explicit and not merely comprised of rhetorical questions (for questions have no truth-value and thus cannot serve as statements in an argument). If you are tempted to write rhetorical questions and use these as arguments, then turn them into assertions.

e. You may use other sources or authorities, but the main thinking should be your own, and all such uses of other sources are subject to the Protocol on Plagiarism.


Essay questions:


3. Tony Stark undergoes a significant transformation in this film. Indeed, on more than one level this is a film about transformations. What is the overall or general character of TS’s transformation? What drives it? And what’s the evidence for all this? Is it a convincing transformation? Why or why not?
4. Consider the suit that makes Stark Ironman. That suit has a powerful emotional and imaginative appeal to us, his audience. What is the appeal? What does it mean to us? What prospect does it hold out to us, and that we find so appealing?
