Chernobyl and Alexievich’s method of gathering information

Write a 1,500-word essay that analyzes the entire book; for example, you could focus on one theme and show how the book develops this theme through its three parts.

In addition to using quotes from the book, support your argument with evidence from 3 additional sources. In the U.S., Alexievich’s work has not received a lot of attention, much of which is due to traditional assumptions about what a literary text should look like and do. As a result, you will not find many scholarships about her work in academic journals; however, you can find book reviews of her work as well as articles in newspapers, magazines, or journals that give you some background knowledge of the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl and Alexievich’s method of gathering information and writing her books.

Suggested sources: book reviews, interviews with the author (check YouTube), Alexievich’s website, and any of the sources linked in our Canvas site (for example, the article “The Memory Keeper”)
