DIRECTIONS:Knowing some of the context in which a text is written can offer insight to the story and enrich your understanding or connection to it. After reading about the contextual approach(PLEASE SEE ATTACHED) to literature this week, choose a specific approach (i.e. biographical, historical, new historicist, etc.) and conduct some research that informs you about that specific context within the play. Include a resource from an approved website (.edu, .gov, .org, or a scholarly source).Suggested structure• State the approach• Briefly explain it• Connect the approach to Glaspell’s Trifles(THE LINK TO TRIFLES IS HERE: https://www.one-act-plays.com/dramas/trifles.html )• Provide specific examples of how that approach provides important insight into the play’s character dynamics, themes, or use of literary elements.**Note: Use the questions at the bottom of the Contextual Approach page to help guide your response.
