must complete the required textbook readings in preparation for the Poetry
Essay. This will equip you to objectively respond to the readings by compiling
information from a variety of sources in order to compose a persuasive analysis
of a literary work. You will also learn to follow standard usage in English
grammar and sentence structure; identify the theme and structure of each
literary selection and the significant characteristics or elements of each
genre studied; and evaluate the literary merit of a work (Syllabus MLOs: A, B,
C, D, F, G and Module/Week 5 LOs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7).
In Module/Week 5, you will write a 750-word (approximately 3 pages) essay that analyzes 1 poem from the Poetry Unit. Before you begin writing the essay, carefully read the below guidelines for developing your paper topic and review the Poetry Essay Grading Rubric to see how your submission will be graded. Gather all of your information, plan the direction of your essay, and organize your ideas by developing a 1-page thesis statement and outline for your essay as you did for your Fiction Essay. Format the thesis statement and the outline in a single Microsoft Word document using current MLA, APA, or Turabian style, whichever corresponds to your degree program; check your Perrine’s Literature textbook, the Harbrace Essentials Handbook, and/or its companion website, to ensure the correct citation format is used.
final essay must include, a title page (see the General Writing Requirements),
a thesis/outline page, and the essay itself followed by a works
cited/references/bibliography page of any primary and/or secondary texts cited
in the essay.
