Choose one of the stories already  assigned  for readings and discussions and write a formal research based analysis on this story.    Please have no less than two primary sources, all being periodicals etc. You may choose any of the stories assigned during this semester, even one you used already, only you will now include a research component to the essay. Use outside the text sources (all from an academic library) to support your points. Use exact quotes or paraphrases and be sure and document these sources MLA style

Remember: Formal papers go beyond the personal experience perspective of the discussion board postings. Formal papers must demonstrate objectivity supported by the readings themselves not our own personal experience.

Use the Hero’s journey points as included in all previous essays.  For example there is the sacrifice, conflict and transformation. 

*Please include an outline at the beginning or end of your essay and submit on a separate page. Be aware the essay will not be graded without the inclusion of the outline.

 Guidelines:

Minimum length: 500 words. Maximum length: 700 words. 

Formal papers are polished essays designed to demonstrate understanding of the genre we are studying. Formal papers must be well organized, and they must clearly support an arguable and provable thesis. The thesis should be a clear and specific statement (1 explicit sentence) within a fully developed introduction. 

  • Specific and relevant details should be included within each body paragraph in order to prove your thesis.
  • Clarity is a must, and papers must focus on literary analysis and interpretation–no plot summary.See link included above.
  • At least two in-text citations are required (at least 1 from the story itself and at least 1 from a credible secondary source) but no more than 4 citations are allowed. In addition, the paper must have a complete Works Cited page in MLA format. Omitting the citations and/or the Works Cited page will automatically drop the grade by a letter. You must cite ALL sources both on the Works Cited page as well as in the text.
  • No more than 10% of the total paper should be quoted material; otherwise, it’s plot summary. The majority of the paper should be analysis.
  • The paper should consist of at least 5 paragraphs, and all paragraphs should be approximately the same length … this includes the introduction and conclusion.
  • Formal papers must be written in 3rd person–(he, she, it, the reader, etc.), no 1st person (I, we, me, us) or 2nd person (you).
  • Grammar, sentence structure, and precise word choice all factor into the final grade, so proofread and edit carefully.
  • MLA format is required. This includes a proper four-line heading, spacing (double-spaced throughout).
