I have attached an outline which you need to use and should follow(IT HAS FEEDBACK WITH IT). I have also attached a sample of ANOTHER PAPER WITH another topic (the topic is not related to this one, it is just a sample of a PAPER with critiques, that way you know what I am looking for in terms of a PAPER) (act on those comments of the draft, when writing the paper for this topic) please read all files attached carefully before starting this paper. Please attend to the the outline and draft. Remember your primary text is Luna which is written in Punjabi that is why its essential for you to understand Punjabi and be able to read it and understand it. The primary source Luna comes in two parts, i’ve labeled it for you as well as the english translation for it does too, which I have also attached and labeled for you.
Topic/ Proposal is stated below:
Topic: How binaries are used to characterize Luna as “bad” Batalvi’s Luna (1965) exemplifies how women tend to be judged for their actions much more quickly than the men in extramarital affairs. In this play, Iccharan seeks to justify the actions of her husband by blaming it on his much younger wife, Luna. In her conversation with her servant Goli, she discusses how Luna has placed a ‘spell’ on her husband. Even in contemporary society, there is an expression coined among Punjabi speakers that a woman should not be like Luna. There is a negative connotation surrounding Luna’s name that is associated with the breaking up of families, which goes against the gender roles that women play in the family as peacekeepers and the ones who bring the family together. (though the feedback suggests you should probably just stick to the notion of ‘blame’ on women instead of solely on extramarital affairs, check out the outline feedback for what I mean here) So please just stick to the blame notion of women. Reacting to the feedback of the outline and draft are crucial in writing this paper properly and to it’s highest standard. So please do that in order to do well.
Articles Ive attached for you are written below; BUT the draft feedback suggests that you should just stick with BATALVI’S Luna’s text (check out the draft comments to see what I mean here) ;
