A Piece of My Heart Analysis
Write an essay on ONE (1) of the following topics. You must refer to the play you are discussing. If you cannot use direct quotations (due to circumstances), then make general references to the scenes. Give me enough information about the scene, so that I know which scene you are talking about.

2. With relation to the play, define Vaudeville and discuss how it can help us to understand Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett
3. Explain what Hélène Cixous means when she says that woman must write from woman and discuss how this idea helps us to analyze A Piece of My Heart by Shirley Lauro.
