I need help writing something for this
Death of the Author and Author Function are two key terms from two distinguished scholars you’ll hear from later in the semester, too: Roland Barthes and Michel Foucault. No one is actually dying here, though, and the function of the author isn’t something the author’s actually doing; rather, ‘death’ is figurative, and ‘function’ has to do with the perceived role the author plays in society. Illustrate and exemplify how these concepts work, and then explore the implication for these terms for you, as college students, and just as importantly for you, who intend to be teachers (and that’s a large chunk of you, I’m guessing). How do you ‘die’ each time you write a paper? Why does it matter how others perceive your ‘function’ as a writer of a text? Provide specific examples.
here is “Death in the Woods”

So, how much authority does an author have, anyway? How much authority do you have, as a writer of papers? How, in a sense, do all of us accept ‘authority’ as we write? Think in terms particularly of these concepts: fabula and syuhzet. What have these concepts to do with the ‘making’ of a narrative? Think of it this way: When you tell a story, do you tell it exactly the same way each time? Why or why not? What are the implications of stories ‘changing’ or being told in different ways, perhaps even by different people? How, in a sense, is being an author a matter of ethics?

Vladimir Propp believed there were thirty-one steps (not flavors of ice cream, as in Baskins-Robbins, though it’s a good tip for a mnemonic) in fairy tales. Now, not all fairy tales contain all thirty-one features, but Propp discovered consistent patterns in the telling of folk and fairy tales. Take some initiative: Look up Propp’s steps, and then apply it to the stories you know well; that might include everything from Cinderella and Beowulf to Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Hunger Games. Select a narrative and explain how Propp’s steps fit (or not) in the sequence of events.

discussion in Nealon & Giroux’s text. How does Anderson’s narrator subvert his own authority? How are the various naratemes engaged, and how does the narrator’s telling illustrate syuhzet? Why should we question Anderson’s intentions in writing the story, and what gives us the right to do so? How does Anderson’s discourse about the event(s) reflect an ideology that has been built and perpetuated throughout his life? Tangle with this story. Use our exploration of authority to better analyze this narrative telling, exposing not simply “what” happened, but “why” the manner in which the story is told is important and “how” the narrator’s method of telling the story discloses something about him, as much as the other characters.
These all need to be well thought out each in a pharagrah or two each please.
