Final Paper: A Literary Analysis Written in the Persuasive Essay Style

Note: Writing assessments for this course are summative. This means that successful completion of each weekly assignment will help you to succeed in your next assignments. The writing assignments will culminate in this, your final paper. Good luck. Write well.

For this Final Paper, you will select a topic from the list provided below and write an eight to ten page literary analysis written in the persuasive essay style.  Throughout this five week course, you will revise and refine the topic so that you may write an interesting and informative literary analysis.  A literary paper consists of an investigation of the primary text you are studying.  Before incorporating secondary sources, you must already have done your own analysis of the literature at hand.  Use secondary sources only to enhance your own ideas.  Three to five literary sources must be used, preferably from JSTOR.


  • Point of View: Explore the concept of self as ‘other’ in Jumpa Lahiri’s Hell-Heaven.
  • Character: Analyze the relationship between narrator and author in the work of Margaret Atwood. (Focus on Happy Endings, Spelling, and This is a Photograph of Me.)
  • Imagery: How does Edgar Allen Poe use imagery to further plot in The Fall of the House of Usher or The Cask of Amontillado? Be sure to consider Exposition, Complication (Rising Action), Falling Action (Denouement), and Resolution (Hamaertia)
  • Explore the interplay between rhythm, imagery, and metaphor in the work of Langston Hughes. Focus on five poems.
  • How does Ibsen’s use of setting render the play A Doll’s House a work of Realism?
  • Explore the diction of William Shakespeare’s Othello by explaining the significance of the playwright’s deft maneuvering between prose and verse.
