By examining fiction, translate your reflections into a well-developed, thesis-driven essay arguing and analyzing a short story’s literary component(s).
Use effective pre-writing, composing, and revising of the essay.
Choose one of the stories assigned (or not assigned) from Chapters 2-5 and write an essay exploring how the character evolves over the course of the story, providing evidence from the story to back up your argument. Even though we read “Powder” and “Sonny’s Blues” in Chapter 3 (“Character”), you can choose other stories as well. Incorporate at least four quotations from the story throughout the essay along with outside research as well and to document them accordingly using MLA.
Guidelines that must be followed:
• Rhetorical Approach: Literary Argument
• Primary voice is 3rd person only (no personal experience, no 1st person plural with we/us/our, and no 2nd person (you)
• Must use/cite the text to back up your literary analysis, and must use another outside source. (LACC Library Databases like JSTOR and Literature Resource Center are good ones).
• May not use Wikipedia (ask instructor or librarian if you are uncertain if a website is reputable).
• Include a Works Cited (WC) page; WC page is a separate page from the essay and should not be page 4. Failing to attach a Works Cited page will result in major point deductions on the essay.
• If needed, use only 1 long (block) quote in the essay.
Tips that must be met:
Don’t assume your readers will remember (or consider important) the same scenes in the story that you do. Use specific examples to back up your claims.
Don’t retell the plot at length. Discriminate when you summarize: keep quotations short and get to the point you want to make as quickly as possible.
Don’t assume that quotations or summaries are self-sufficient and prove your point automatically. Analyze quotes thoroughly in your own words, explaining why they are important. (General rule: follow any quotation or summary with several lines of analysis.)
Do have only 1 long quote if a long quote is needed.
Do include a Works Cited page since you will be using quotes from the story AND possible outside research.
Do use the present tense when writing about literature.
Do use quotation marks around the story’s title.
