Frankenstein by comparing it to one other romantic text we have read (of your choosing).

Compare and contrast the two readings Frankenstein and Mary Prince. I will provide everything you need, also the reading and instructions will be below and the readings in the files.
Essay Question
***Write an organized, thesis-driven essay in which you analyze a key theme or idea in
Frankenstein by comparing it to one other Romantic text we have read (of your choosing).
Compare your texts using one of the following topics: 1. Solitude / Isolation. 2. Knowledge /
Education. 3. Creation / Imagination.
***Your essay should be structured as a “compare and contrast” discussion, in which you analyze
the same idea across the two texts. You need not aim for even treatment of both (presumably
your discussion of Frankenstein will take up more of your essay), but please aim to discuss both
texts in a relatively substantial way.
***You should support your points with evidence drawn from the two texts. Because this is a
closed-book exam, you will not be expected to provide exact quotations (although you may do
so if you wish!), but you should summarize and refer to passages in the readings that support
your argument.
Remember: the topics listed above are just that — topics. Your essay should have a specific,
sharp focus and a clearly argued thesis statement.
I picked 1. Solitude/Isolation or 2. Knowledge/Education, but pick anyone out of those 3 just let me know which one you chose. The short essay needs to be in five paragraph form with short paragraphs. You’re going to introduction/claim (what you’re going to be arguing), 3 bodies paragraphs talking about both readings in all 3 paragraphs as well as showing the evidence of the claim that was in the introduction and explanation of the evidence . With the 3 paragraphs you can do 2 compare and 1 contrast or 2 contrast and 1 compare, whatever choose. Lastly your last paragraph the conclusion as you know already.
*****DO NOT USE ANY OUTSIDE RESOURCES ONLY THE READINGS I PROVIDE FOR YOU!*****
you can use direct quotes or paraphrase it. If you paraprhase highlight it so I can

• demonstrates correct mla documentation skills

This is a literature class (as opposed to a composition class), so my main concern is
that your three essays demonstrate your mastery of the readings. However, I do deduct
points for grammar and mechanics, and I assess the focus, organization, development,
and coherence of your essay. Your grade also reflects whether you have met,
exceeded, or fallen below the standards of effective writing. Essays will be evaluated
according to the criteria defined below:
Effective writing . . .
• Achieves its purpose,
• Considers and adapts to its intended audience,
• Adequately develops ideas through the use of specific details,
• Carefully constructs and organizes ideas, sentences and paragraphs,
• Effectively uses language, including correct grammar and
mechanics,
• Demonstrates correct MLA documentation skills

You must rely on your chosen essay only for evidence, and rely solely on your own critical thought to build your argument.

Assignment Objectives:
Write a 750-1,000 word literary analysis paper that makes an interpretive, evidence-based argument about a pattern in ONE of the following poems:
“Invitation” by Aimee Nezhukumatathil
“Opera Singer” by Ross Gay
“Foaling Season” by Ada Limon (the current U.S. Poet Laureate) “On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous” by Ocean Vuong
“The Orange Alert” by Douglas Kearney
“The Master’s House” by Solmaz Sharif
“The Cloud Corporation” by Timothy Donnelly
“Trojan” by Jericho Brown
You can focus on any pattern in the poem that you like, so long as you make an interpretive, insightful claim about the pattern that goes beyond the surface meaning and summary. Remember that a literary analysis paper:
• makes interpretive and debatable claims;
• is supported with evidence from the text;
• argues for a thesis about the text; and
• explores the complexity of the text.
To write this paper: The first step is to identify a pattern in your chosen poem. The pattern can be anything – a pattern in imagery, language, sound, structural element, metaphor, simile, and so forth. The pattern could also be a theme that appears in multiple ways throughout the poem, perhaps through a combination of imagery, language, structure, and the like that all works together to reinforce the theme.
The second step is to develop an argument about what the pattern means or suggests. It is not enough to just claim a pattern exists; the paper MUST offer an argument about how to interpret or understand the pattern. Chapter 4 in Digging Into Literature explains the patterns strategy of literary analysis in depth. The paper should offer evidence of the recurring pattern from the poem in the form of direct quotes, and then explain how that evidence supports your interpretation of the poem.
Review your reading notes and re-read your chosen poem several times. Review the chapters we have read from Digging Into Literature, and use the sample analysis papers we have studied as examples: “Loss in Sylvia Plath’s ‘Morning Song’” (Chapter 3; this paper argues that a pattern reinforces a theme throughout), “Sylvia Plath’s ‘Morning Song’ and the Challenge of Motherly Identity” (Chapter 4) and Sample Essay B: “Contradictory Desires in Michael Ondaatje’s ‘The Cinnamon Peeler’” (Chapter 4; this paper argues that the poem’s theme changes).
Remember to utilize the “quote sandwich” technique, the surface/depth strategy, and the patterns strategy. Consult your instructor via Zoom for help developing an argument and publishing your paper if desired.
You will need to spend considerable time thinking about your argument and refining it as you write, as well as gathering evidence from the poem and publishing strong paragraphs. This paper cannot be completed in one sitting at the last minute.
Format and Requirements:
• 750-1,000 words, double-spaced, Times New Roman 12-point font, 1-inch margins, Works Cited page, MLA header, page numbers, no cover page.
• For formatting and Works Cited examples, see the sample student paper in Canvas. Click on Files, then Sample Work, then “Sample MLA Literature Paper.”
• Outside sources are NOT allowed for this paper. You must rely on your chosen essay only for evidence, and rely solely on your own critical thought to build your argument. This is typical of a literary analysis.
• If your final publish is more than 25 words short of the minimum word count, it will be penalized. No exceptions.

Where exactly do you see the five criteria of a literary analysis at work in the essay?

In this analysis exercise, we will evaluate a sample literary analysis paper, which will help us better understand the qualities of a successful literary interpretation.
Directions:
1
. Re-read the poem “Morning Song” by Sylvia Plath at the beginning of Chapter 3 in Digging Into Literature.
2. Read the student essay “Sylvia Plath’s ‘Morning Song’ and the Challenge of Motherly Identity” near the end of Chapter 4.
3. The textbook claims that this essay “has a clear thesis, contains multiple surface/depth arguments, and persuasively interprets some patterns” in the poem. In a 200-300 word response, explain whether you agree or disagree with these statements and why.
As you write, you might find it helpful to consider the following:
What exactly makes the thesis strong, weak, or something else? What are the characteristics of a strong interpretative thesis in the first place?
Is the argument interpretive and why? Or is it summarizing and why? Be specific.
Where exactly do you see the five criteria of a literary analysis at work in the essay?
What examples can you find of the surface/depth and patterns strategies in action?
Is the evidence incorporated using the quote sandwich method?
Is the essay organized? Does it use topic sentences that present sub-points of the thesis?
