Essay

This first essay should be a 600-850 word essay focusing on the poetry we have read during Weeks 3 and 4. It is due at the end of Week 4.

  1. This essay will be the first in which you will use some sources. While it should primarily passages from the poem discuss as evidence, it should also reference 1-2 informational or critical sources from outside of your textbook.
  2. The essay should be in MLA essay format and should have the student/teacher cover letter as the first page (see this document for the cover letter questions and final draft checklist, and the sample essay for an example of an MLA formatted essay).
  3. The essay must have an MLA format works cited list that cites all sources used.

Assignment: Analyze 1 poem from the assigned readings using 1 of the following critical approaches (NOT reader response) we discussed in the Week 4 forum, using 1-2 secondary sources to help support your argument. Make sure that the essay has a strong thesis related to the approach–do not argue that “this poem is best analyzed with this approach.” Again the allowed critical approach choices are:

  • biographical criticism
  • feminist criticism
  • historical criticism
  • Marxist and social criticism
  • New Historicism
  • psychological criticism
  • structuralism
