TCI Sample. The sample questions give you an example of the questions you should answer in your TCI. The questions are general and you already know some of the answers because we’ve discussed them in class. For example, no need for a complete “Text” section because we already know the context of the text’s production, writing, publication history, etc. In other words, after a few sentences for the Text section, dive into Context and your interpretation. I suggest you focus on at least two themes/topics that Anzaldúa engages and explain 1) why she does so based on examples (this involves Context: both her personal history, and the the historical circumstances surrounding “periodicity” or the period in which she writes “La Prieta”), and 2) your interpretation (which is your evaluation of the importance [or not] of “La Prieta”: T + C = I).

1. Text

Who is/was the the writer/director/artist/creator?:

What pertinent biographical information about the writer/director/artist/creator do we know (e.g., birthplace, education, political affiliation/s, identity markers such as “feminist,” “conservative,” etc.)?:

If known, what is the text’s name or title and why is this important?:

What is the publication date of the text? (Careful with this one: ask yourself, self, “Is the publication date different from date/s it was written, performed, staged, etc.?)

What is the text’s explicit purpose?:

Was the text censored? Is it still censored? If so, why and why might this be important?:

Where was text published/exhibited/shown?:

What is the text’s genre (e.g., poetry, prose, drama/performance, exhibition, etc.)?:

What is the text’s subgenre (e.g., if prose, is it a novel, a short story, a memoir, etc.)?:

What are the text’s formal characteristics/qualities of text (e.g., metaphors, symbols, tone, themes, etc.):

2. Context

What is the text’s cultural/historical period? (e.g., Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Romanticism, Modernity, Postmodern, etc.)?

How are the text’s formal qualities (e.g., themes, topics, metaphors, symbols, tone, etc.) a reflection of its historical context?:

Does the text break established tradition and/or does it innovate those traditions?:

Doest the text introduce novel technologies of representation that weren’t readily available in previous historical periods?

Is there an implicit purpose beyond the text’s stated explicit purpose?

3. Interpretation

Based on the Text and Context, what is your interpretation? Focus on no more than three themes; this is a short writing assignment.
