Read “Girl” by Jamaica Kincaid, originally published in The New Yorker, June 26th, 1978 (Links to an external site.)
For your first discussion board, you will write your own version of “Girl.” You may choose to write one about gender if you like, but you can also write about any role. Here are some of the roles I’ve played in my life to get you started thinking: oldest child, bookworm, introvert, Taco Time cashier, camp counselor, friend, wife, mother, teacher. In your imitation, you should use specific details, as Kincaid does, to show the expectations for that role. You may also imitate some of Kincaid’s style moves, such as her use of the imperative, her semi-colons to create a long sentence with momentum, and her inclusion of places where the person inhabiting the role talks back.
Please post your initial response here by noon on Tuesday and responses to at least 2 of your peers’ posts by midnight.
A note on length: your imitations of “Girl” may vary in length, but try for at least one long paragraph, like Kincaid’s.
Because this prompt is intended both to familiarize you with responding to literature creatively and to help you get acquainted, please comment on both the writing and the content when responding to your peers.
