Assignment | Literary Analysis (Barr): Getting Started

Prof. Christine Barr | ENGL 1302 (Spring 2022)

Assignment

For the second essay, you will analyze some facet of a literary work from the following literary works:

  • its theme,
  • its characters,
  • its setting,
  • its narrator, or
  • its structure.

You should research scholarship on the literary piece, and write an essay that both presents your own analysis and response to what others have said about the same work. You can agree with what they say, disagree or both; the important thing is to think about what others say, and to quote, paraphrase, or summarize their view in your text. (See pg. 844)
