Love, Honor & Obey

Step 1: Selecting Your Text

I selected Amanda Barker from Spoon River Anthology because I felt I could use it to create awareness for martial rape. The Barker's tale exposes us to the darker side of martial expectations. Henry expected Amanda to obey and honor his right for a child; while Amanda expected him to love her enough to value her life.


Amanda Barker

HENRY got me with child,

Knowing that I could not bring forth life

Without losing my own.

Step 2: Drafting Your Screenplay

Love, Honor & Obey

Step 3: Writing Your Logline

Amanda's refusal to have a child that will result in her death causes Henry to take matters into his own hands.
