Goal

  • You’ve studied the three short stories, the three novellas, and you’ve looked at several outside sources [literary criticisms] for use in developing ideas about each story/novella. Now, write a 3-4 page paper on either one of the five stories [Asterion, Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge, The Guest, Heart of Darkness, Metamorphosis] or two [as comparison] or three or more as a division/analysis [let’s say, for example, that you’ve found common themes in three or more stories–that’s a paper idea]. It’s your choice. Best to write about the story or stories that most intrigued you.
  • You may [and should] quote passages from the story/stories you write about and any outside sources you use [criticisms].
  • Cite your sources.

Instructions

You will write a 3-4 page paper on one of the stories [unless, of course, you choose to compare two or analyze several]. You should use sources that help you in your analysis of the story/stories. This assignment allows you to demonstrate the variety of skills you have learned throughout this unit [and the first three modules], especially your understanding of literary criticism, Jungian archetypes, and the story elements [plot, character, theme, symbol, etc.] and your understanding of a fairly broad range of cultural and intellectual experiences and voices [see course objectives]. Your paper will also be grammatically sound and contain few to no punctuation errors. You should treat this like any other kind of paper. MLA rules apply.

Follow the steps below:

  1. Open a document (e.g., Google Doc, Word).
  2. MLA requires your name, my name, the course title, and the date [upper left], hit return key once, begin the paper. Do not allow for extra spacing.
  3. You should find relevant, quality sources [literary criticisms] that help this paper.
  4. Use our textbook if you have it and/or the criticisms that I’ve found for you. Remember to use your fact-checking skills when selecting database sources!
  5. Create MLA citations for any sources using the MLA guides found within the module.
  6. Double-space the entire document. Create a Works Cited” list on the last page. Remember to put the citations in alphabetical order, and add “hanging” indents to the citations
