Article Analysis (Due before 21 Jun 2020 – 4:00 pm )
Article Analysis – Instructions
Part of writing an effective analytical research paper involves using evidence directly from your primary texts (the literature itself) as well as the works of other critics and scholars (secondary texts). Therefore, you will need to be able to analyze these secondary works, and to accurately quote, paraphrase and summarize these outside sources in your own essays. This assignment helps build these research skills. In fact, the article you analyze here (and the literature on which it’s based) could even become part of your research paper topic in future weeks, if you choose.
For this assignment, choose a critical article from one of the (Library Databases) that makes a clear argument about any one of the stories you’ve read for the class so far. The article you choose must provide more than basic biographical information and plot summary; it must make an opinionated argument about some aspect of the literary work. Your complete analysis should be at least 500 words in length.
