Harris 2 Name 1 Name 2 Topics in American Literature – ENGL-2130-F91 Date Overview What is the title of your Research Project? Contemporary Literature and Mental Illness What is the topic of your Research Project? My research topic is the portrayal of mental illness in contemporary literature and its reflection on changing societal attitudes toward mental health. Why did you select your topic? My project is titled “Mental Health in Literature Proposal.” I chose this topic because I believe literature plays a significant role in shaping people’s perceptions of mental health and promoting empathy and understanding toward those who struggle with mental illness. What two pieces of literature were essential to your project and why? Two essential works to my research are “Distinctly Different: ‘Bartleby, the Scrivener,’ Sula, and Disability Studies” by Cynthia Patterson Gilje and “The madwoman out of the attic: genderised madness and failed hybridity in Henry James’s Daisy Miller” by Minna Kylmälä. Gilje’s work offers an analysis of the representation of mental impairment in Bartleby, highlighting the societal response to those with mental illness and the stigma attached to it. Kylmälä’s article examines the portrayal of Daisy Miller’s madness, highlighting the gendered nature of mental illness and the societal view of women who challenge traditional gender roles as deviant and mentally unstable. What are two important takeaways from your project? Two important takeaways from my research are that literature plays an essential role in shaping societal attitudes toward mental illness and promoting empathy and understanding toward those who struggle with mental health. Additionally, the representation of mental illness in literature reflects the changing societal attitudes towards mental health, highlighting the importance of examining the portrayal of mental illness in contemporary literature to better understand societal attitudes towards mental health.
