1. Compare Detroit portrayed in Middlesex to real, historic Detroit.
2. I plan on piecing together information that I learned while writing the first essay of the semester about Detroit. I want to emphasize on how the two have more similarities than differences.
3. “Middlesex” by Jeffery Eugenides, portrays Detroit accurately through the use of vivid imagery, accurate descriptions, and historic landmarks.
4. Mason, Philip P. Rumrunning and the roaring twenties prohibition on the Michigan-Ontario Waterway. Detroit: Wayne State UP, 1995. I would like to focus on more information about the riots and the rumrunning that Milton and Lefty were involved in.
