In a cohesive, thoughtful essay, engage in some in-depth analysis and interpretation of your selected work. You may choose any novel, short story, poem, film, or drama (play) we have read for class. You should quote from (and directly cite) at least 8 times from your chosen work. MLA essay
  2. Literary Theory Research Approach: Choose ONE text that we have read to analyze in depth. Your ultimate goal should be to apply one literary theory to the work and conduct some outside research to provide some context for the application of the theory. In so doing, you will make an argument that the theory you have applied provides an important interpretation for the work and will support your argument using both the literary text you’ve selected and some outside research. In a cohesive, thoughtful essay, combine both passages from your selected text and from your outside research to create a specific theoretical-based reading. You may choose any novel, short story, poem, film, or drama (play) we have read for class. You should quote from (and directly cite) at least 5 times from your chosen work AND 3 times from your outside research. MLA essay.
  3. Creative Approach: Propose your own prompt. This should align with the course objectives and needs to be cleared by me before you begin.

You may use outside research for this MLA essay. However, make sure your voice and ideas are the clear focus. DO NOT plagiarize. Any plagiarism—from one sentence to the whole essay, intentional or unintentional—will result in a “0” and an “F” for the course.
