Due: Tuesday, May 10
Length: 3-4 pages
Estimated Time of Completion: 1-2 hours
At this point, your paper may be a combination of well-defined sections and an outline. In order to receive full credit for this assignment, your draft must include:
1. A thesis statement: A thesis in a literary analysis or literary research paper can take many forms. The thesis may focus on an analysis of one of the elements in a literary work: character, plot, structure, idea, theme, symbol, style, imagery, tone, etc.
Example: In “A Worn Path,” Eudora Welty creates a fictional character in Phoenix Jackson whose determination, faith, and cunning illustrate the indomitable human spirit.
Note that the work, author, and character to be analyzed are identified in this thesis statement. The thesis relies on a strong verb (creates). It also identifies the element of fiction that the writer will explore (character) and the characteristics the writer will analyze and discuss (determination, faith, cunning).
2. at least TWO specific areas of focus for close reading, or textual analysis: What specific passages of a text will you be analyzing? What direct quotes will you be using in your paper?
Example: Eudora Welty gives a description of Phoenix Jackson’s looks at the beginning of the short story that highlights how old and frail she is; this is a contrast to how strong her spirit is. …
Phoenix Jackson shows her determination to get medicine for her grandson when she confronts what she thinks is a ghost…
Throughout the short story, Phoenix Jackson talks to herself and to the world around her, encouraging herself forward. The walk to get the medicine for her son is challenging, but she does not give up. Phoenix Jackson complains, “Thorns, you doing your appointed work. Never want to let folks pass—no, sir. Old eyes thought you was a pretty little green bush” (Welty). She manages to free herself from a thorny bush…
Note that there are specific areas of focus. 3. summary and analysis of at least TWO secondary sources, or scholarly article that discusses the chosen text or text. [Much of this work has already been completed in your annotated bibliography.] The summary should include analysis of two major quotationsfrom the scholar’s work, in addition to offering relevant quotations that help illustrate the writer’s argument. As you explore the scholar’s essay, ask yourself these questions: What is the argument? Where, specifically, do you see it stated? How does the author go about proving the argument? What are some of the examples used as evidence to support this argument? What is the most compelling piece of evidence – which example do you find least persuasive? Why?
