Blog Assignment 3 – Empathy, Real or Apparent

For this assignment (which should help you prepare for your first formal assignment), you will find a specific instance from A Time to Kill where empathy–either real or apparent–is invoked. This can be one of three types of invocation of empathy:

  1. one character attempting to invoke empathy in another character;
  2. the film invoking empathy in the viewer; or
  3. some combination of the two.

For your post, you will need to explain how/why the invocation of empathy occurs. You will also need explain whether this is a real, or only apparent invocation of empathy. If it’s only apparently an invocation of empathy, what other emotion or perspective is it invoking?

Your post should be 500-700words, and is due in class on Thursday, September 22.
