Thank you very much. This is great now. Appreciate all your help and revisions. Thank you once again! You did a wonderful job.
We’ve been exploring literary elements and devices through the imaginations of other authors. Now it’s your turn: write your fictional representation that either incorporates and illustrates or reflects on the critical acumen you’ve acquired through multiple exercises in literary analysis.
Be as creative or imaginative as you’d like as long as your meet the following generic criteria:
1. Respond to one of the prompts below. Your essay must have a clear thesis—explicit (which means it’s directly stated in your introduction) or implicit (which means it’s illustrated through carefully structured details). Notice that only few of the prompts below have a standard essay format question that calls for a comparative analysis; the rest are creative options that require that you show more and tell less. Go with your strengths and choose the assignment you’re most comfortable with.
2. Discuss or demonstrate your response using good close reading from the texts. Your essay must include at least three (3) short citations from each text you are analyzing/rewriting/comparing. Each citation should be no longer than one sentence. Use the Purdue OWL (Online Writing Lab) for assistance with proper documentation. Also see resources in our Help folder and use Smarthinking.
3. Your essay must be 2+ pages (700+ words) and follow APA format (MLA for in-text citations). Submit your essay in Turnitin with the grading rubric by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday. See syllabus for our course ID and password.
