Assignment Instructions: Poetry Essay

Complete a researched critical essay of a minimum of 4 pages on one or more poems selected from our textbook.

The critical essay must follow classic essay structure: the introduction with thesis, the body, and the conclusion. The thesis must make an arguable claim about the meaning of the text you’ve chosen to write about (or some major aspect of that text). The thesis may not be focused on the author or the author’s life. You must analyze and interpret the text on the page. The body of the essay must support the thesis by using information and examples from the assigned readings and must include additional, documented information from at least two credible sources from the library databases. Your textbook may count as only one source, regardless of the number of literary works that you cite from it. You are required to obtain at least two sources from the library‚Äôs databases, such as the Literature Resource Center and the History Study Center. Wikipedia, Shmoop, eNotes, Spark Notes, and other such sites are not credible sources for academic writing, and if you use them, they will not count towards the requirements for this assignment.
