Focus on one specific author.

Your paper must focus on one specific author. You can choose the topic around that author but it should be limited to the works of one author. Your paper CAN NOT be a biography. This is a literary analysis paper only.
This author must be the writer of classical fiction. Pop fiction and non-fiction are not options for this paper.
Your paper must be in MLA format
You must have a minimum of five secondary sources (written by someone else aboutthe author you chose) in addition to primary sources (literary works by the author). Any sources listed on your Works Cited page MUST be referenced somewhere in your paper. You may not list a source that you did not use.
You must have a title page, a Works Cited page, and the body of your paper must be at least 1500 words long.
Quoted material may not make up more than 1/5 of your paper.
You may not use a font larger than 14, you must use either Times New Roman, Courier, or Arial font.
You must use 1-inch margins
As you begin the process of choosing topics for your research paper, I want to clarify the issue of focus and research. First, the focus of your paper MUST be on the literature that author has produced. Look for common themes among works or the significance of that author’s works, etc. Do the research FIRST before you decide the focus, which brings me to my second important issue. You already know that you must have a minimum of five secondary sources (these are research documents written ABOUT the author, not by the author). But these five required sources must focus on the literature as well. Having two sources about the literature and three sources about the author’s life will not meet the requirement. If there is something significant about the author’s life that impacted the literature that is fine to include, but that should be a resource that is listed in addition to the five sources solely dedicated to literary analysis. Your sources MUST be quality, academic sources. You should NOT include references such as SparkNotes, CliffsNotes, or other sources designed to provide short cuts to the process. Also note that the 5th essay in this course is the actual annotated bibliography for his course, so you need to get started on this research paper ASAP. Please see the Annotated Bibliography instructions below this entry.

William Shakespeare — views of love character’s conflict in his writings!

Research paper about William Shakespeare and his literature.

what’s more, I have one annotated bibliography need to write, because it should support the research paper’s argument.

Hi, you may need to finish the bibliography first.

The research paper’s main idea is about the love and character’s conflicts.

You should have a clear thesis and brief introduction about the author in the first paragraph.

Thank you !

This assignment is your 5th graded essay. Make sure you read and follow these instructions carefully.

An annotated bibliography is a list of secondary source citations with a short overview of each essay’s main argument. The educational goal is to 1) gather information necessary for your final research paper and 2) to train yourself in finding other authors’ theses sentences so you can write your own.

For this assignment you should:

1. List at least six secondary sources in alphabetical order. These should include 3 books and 3 journal articles.

2. Include all information required by the MLA style for the citation. You can find this in your handbook.

3. Include a 75-100 word summary of each source, which should include direct quotes. The goal here is for you to find the author’s thesis sentence. Please note: Your annotated bibliography entries will be much longer than the examples offered below.

4. Be proofread for grammar errors. For style guidance, go to https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

Your bibliography should look something like this (only with longer entries):

An Annotated Bibliography of Works about Edna St. Vincent Millay, 1974-1993
With Supplement (1912-1973)

Adler, Amy. Rev. of Edna St. Vincent Millay: Poet, by Carolyn Daffron. School Library Journal 36 (Mar. 1990): 243.

While few students are familiar with M’s poems, “even fewer understand [their] impact on the political and social structure of her time.” Daffron’s book will be welcomed by students once they are introduced to it.

Agosta, Lucien L. “Millay, Edna St. Vincent.” Notable Women in the American Theatre. Ed. Alice M. Robinson, Vera Mowry Roberts, and Milly S. Barranger. New York: Greenwood, 1989. 640-44.

Lists M’s contributions to American theater. She “attended at the birth of serious American drama and helped to create an atmosphere in which it could flourish.”

Alkalay-Gut, Karen. “Poetry by Women in America: Esthetics in Evolution.” Canadian Review of American Studies 14 (1983): 239-56.

M is named as being among “the first burst of women poets who wrote as women, from the point of view of women, with the concerns of women.” She is among those who had “something to say about being female.” Finds that M engages in “hiding” and in “protecting the self,” often using a male persona and identifying with a male perspective.

Allen, Gilbert. “Millay and Modernism.” Critical Essays on Edna St. Vincent Millay. Ed. William B. Thesing. Boston: Hall, 1993. 266-72.

Original to this volume. Discussion of Popular Modernism and High Modernism and M’s place in the movements. She scorned High Modernism and tried to satisfy “both her traditional sense of eloquence and the demands of her many subjects.” While M’s reputation declined, the “overall quality” of her work did not. Her “stylistic uncertainty” and her social consciousness poems place her outside the High Modernism movement. Her place in 20th century poetry is not yet defined.

American Theatre Companies, 1888-1930. Ed. Weldon B. Durham. New York: Greenwood, 1987.
Brief mention of M as an important writer whose plays were produced by the Provincetown Players.

Anderson, Maxwell. “Second April.” Critical Essays on Edna St. Vincent Millay. Thesing. 37-38.
Reprinted from The Measure No. 7 (Sept. 1921): 17. Review of Second April.

The major flaw is the frequent use of insignificant or fantastic themes. The virtues include “an almost flawless sensitiveness to phrase,” definiteness of object, and accurate, homely imagery. The sonnets show that M has matured personally since RN.

August, Bonnie Tymorski. “The Poetic Use of Womanhod in Five Modern American Poets: Moore, Millay, Rukeyser, Levertov, and Plath.” Diss. New York U, 1978. DAI-A 39/06 (1978): 3576.
