You should give an analysis of one poem; 3 or more pages long. First Choose a Po

You should give an analysis of one poem; 3 or more pages long.
First Choose a Poem: If it is a long poem, you can briefly give context and then analyze 15-20
lines. Don’t get stuck spending too much time on choosing your poem, and don’t look for a
poem that is especially obvious or easy to understand because it might not give you much to
analyze.
1) You can find a poem to interpret by going to the Poetry Foundation web site then click on
“Poets and Poems,” then under “Subjects” click on “Social Commentary” and then one of the
topics such as race, class, politics, war etc.
http://www.poetryfoundation.org/browse/#subject=61.
2) You might also be able to find other web sites with protest poems.
3) You can also use one of the poems on our Syllabus or in Course Documents but only IF we
hadn’t gotten to it in class, maybe Grace Shulman, or Nicholas Guillen or one of the other
poems by Ernesto Cardinale, Neruda or Carolyn Forche that we haven’t discussed.
4) Or you could use one other poem by such authors on Blackboard as June Jordan, Pedro
Pietri, Jayne Cortez, Lupe Fiasco, Diane Di Prima, Marge Piercy, Amiri Baraka, Immortal
Technique, Allen Ginsberg, Bertold Brecht.
Don’t just give a paraphrase that sums up the poem in prose, but ask what are the elements
that make it effective. How does the poet get the meaning across?
Why are certain words chosen? Are there any:
images – sensuous details
similes – say one thing is “like” another: “love is like a rose”
metaphor – an implied comparison without “like”: “Love is a rose”
personification – gives human characteristics to something inhuman “the
willow weeps for you”
hyperbole – exaggeration
allusion – a reference to another work, such as the Bible, or something in
popular culture (like an ad “They said ‘You’ve come a long way, baby'”)
symbolism – an image that has many levels of meaning – like the garden of
Eden
What do these contribute to the meaning?
Is there a pattern of images?
Are there any oppositions stated or implied? Opposites sometimes will give you a clue to the
meaning.

Evelina by: Frances Burney Burney, Frances. Evelina, or the History of a Young

Evelina by: Frances Burney
Burney, Frances. Evelina, or the History of a Young Lady’s Entrance into the World. Edited by Edward A. Bloom, Oxford UP, 2008.
Purpose: This assignment is meant to help you practice your library research skills
and prepare you to engage with literary criticism in your Term Paper.
Task:
 Use library resources to find a work of literary criticism in which the
author makes an argument about one of the novels we are reading for this
class (any of the novels, including Caleb Williams, will work). This work
should be:
o either an article published in a peer-reviewed scholarly journal or a
chapter in a book from a scholarly publisher;
o at least 10 pages long;
o published within the last 50 years; and
o should present an argument that you find interesting about one of our
novels.
 After reading this text, write a paragraph summarizing it, focusing on the
text’s main claims, the evidence it provides for them, and the broader goals
or stakes of the argument (why the author thinks it is significant).
 If the database in which you found your text provides an abstract for it, you
must not plagiarize this. Your summary will necessarily have some
conceptual overlap with the abstract, it must be your own original
explanation of the text, not a mere rewording of the abstract provided.
 Your summary should not rely on direct quotations, but it must include at
least one quotation from your text (with a citation). Only quote when the
source uses a word or phrase that is significant for its argument.
Summary Specifications:
 Your summary should be around 300-500 words long, not counting your
Works Cited page.
 Your summary must be in MLA format, double-spaced, with properly
formatted in-text citations and a Works Cited page for the work of literary
criticism and any other sources (e.g., the novel) cited.
 Your summary should be carefully edited for grammar, spelling and
punctuation.
