Here is my topic: Topic #3

In my testimonial research paper, I will explain the theme of escaping and show the positive and negative effect on living in an unreal life as the main character does. The advance of technology helps people evaluate in their research and the dreams by realizing they want and need. They can even create an extension of themselves living in another world and realization they future situations and life. By definition, the escapism is the fact of being obsessed by a virtual world. The book Ready Player One partially show the theme of escapism which is seen in the character with Wade. Wade describes his experience in the OASIS as the world so that they could forget the difficulties they encounter in life. Thus I will focus on analyzing the positive and negative part of the OASIS because they abused when being online by the constant use of virtual reality.

Example of an annotated Bibliography:

Douglas, Mary. “Red Riding Hood: An interpretation from anthropology.” Folklore 106.1/2

(1995): 1. Academic Search Premier. EBSCO. Web. 7 March 2014.

In this article, Douglas bases much of the interpretation on the research conducted by Yvonne Verdier. The fieldwork involved learning from the eldest women in the village of Minot, Burgundy. Much effort is displayed in examining the earlier French versions of the story before the revisions by Perrault and Grimm. Douglas offers several references of cannibalism and sexual connotations that are prevalent in the early French versions. Hence, the historical information is insightful, and will be useful in comparing the earlier versions to the current account of the narratives written by Perrault and Grimm. Also, I find the article’s examples and reasoning that the tale is a fantasy to be helpful in preparing my analysis of the story.
