Family relationships are a central theme in many of the works we will read this semester.

Craft an argument about which author better expresses family dynamics—either good or bad. Why do you think so? What makes one author’s use of the family unit—as it pertains to these works—better than the other? Provide detail, analysis, and support for your opinion.
Since this is an analytic paper with an argumentative edge, you will need to provide adequate support for each of your key points.
