relating the literature to the modern world in some way
I. Your essay must address one of the following questions.

How does your selection address essentially classic conflicts such as innocence vs. experience, free will vs. fate or determinism, individual vs. society, nature vs. culture, or eternity vs. the passing of time, nature vs. supernatural, appearance vs. reality?
How does the selection identify traits that significantly shape human identity such as gender, race, ethnic background, social class, sexual orientation, cultural background, nationally, or historical context? Does the selection address divisions, conflicts, and multiple forces within the self?
How does the author adopt the stance of a social critic or a defender of society? How are groups such as women, upper class, lower class, clergy, etc. represented? What stereotypes are in place? For what purposes?
How does the selection address ethical, aesthetic, religious, or professional values? How does it reflect or conflict with what we know of Victorian life?
How does your selection represent the elements associated with its literary movement or time period in a distinctive way? For example, when writing about the Victorians, you might consider the multifaceted ideas of “nature” and “supernatural” and how they are represented in the selection.
II. Your essay must, in some manner, relate the reading to the contemporary world.

III. Your essay should reveal your command of Standard American English and your knowledge of the conventions of academic writing.

Use your best grammar and punctuation. Eliminate contractions and slang.
A literary analysis is not a personal experience essay. Unless you have been asked to write a personal experience essay, avoid using the first person (“I”).
Instead of saying, I think Poe’s narrator is evil, rather than insane , try Poe’s narrator is evil, rather than insane. (Note that this makes you sound more authoritative, as well. Your essay will prove the assertion.)
Academic essays should never use the second person (“you”). Instead, use third person.
Instead of saying If you look closely at Poe’s narrator, you will see that he is evil, rather than insane, try Poe’s use of color and animal imagery show that the narrator is evil, rather than insane.
Focus on the primary text rather than the reader’s response. Instead of saying, The reader will see that the narrator is insane, try Poe creates an atmosphere that shows the narrator is evil, rather than insane.
A literary analysis is not plot summary. You can safely assume that all readers of this essay are familiar with the work under scrutiny.
A literary analysis is not a biography of the author. Unless you are specifically relating the author’s work to her or his life, biographical points should be eliminated. It is not safe to assume that the author has drawn from her or his personal experience in creating the literature under discussion.
After an initial introduction of an author, refer to him or her by last name only. Consider using signal phrases to introduce the authors and expertise of secondary sources. Signal phrases help establish credibility of your sources and help to smoothly integrate source materials.
IV. Your essay mus be formatted in MLA Style andt cite sources in MLA format.

The essay must include quotes from the primary text (your selection from the reading list).
The essay must also utilize and document at least two scholarly secondary sources in proper MLA format.
The essay must include MLA format parenthetical citations and a works cited.
V. Your essay must use credibile, scholarly source material.

Scholarly source material for literature is written by professionals and experts on the subject. University professors, graduate students, published authors contribute to the scholarly discussion of literature. Scholarly materila will have a documented author. Some scholarly material is published online, but much of it is still confined to print based journals.
Do not use Wikipedia, GradeSaver.com, SparkNotes, Enotes, PinkMonkey, CliffsNotes, or other “study guide” websites or books as sources. Aside from being “literary-lite,” many of these sources do not attribute the work to a specific author. Your sources must name authors, and your essay should introduce the authors.
Do not use print encyclopedias or dictionaries as sources.
Do not use information gathered from high school web sites or college websites whose authors have similar or less experience than you have in writing literary analysis.
VI. Your essay must be uploaded in Word 97- 2003 .doc format to the Assignment Dropbox in Blackboard.

If you have Office 2007, you will need to SAVE AS a Word 97-2003 document.

There are faxes for this order.
