help with english class –

Throughout the second half of the class, we will work toward the composition of a single major analytical research paper. We will move through a guided research process made up of a series of graded assignments related to the conception, research, organization, and composition of what will become an interpretively significant and well-informed literary analysis.  While the topic and texts that you select are at your discretion and you are encouraged to explore issues you find interesting, you should strive to write on matters that would not be immediately apparent to casual readers and about subjects with relatively broad interpretive consequences. Ultimately, your thesis should aim not only to make a compelling argument about the texts but also to show readers why your argument matters.

Given our formal concern with short fiction, there are two primary strategies for approaching the assignment:

1) Confine your analysis to a single collection of stories (e.g., In Our Time, The Thing Around Your Neck) and consider the subjects, themes, images, and arguments that are developed across multiple works therein.

2) Confine your analysis to a single subject, theme, image or argument, (e.g., motherhood, ghosts and the supernatural, colonialism) and consider how multiple authors treat this theme throughout a number of works.

While you should consult a wide variety of materials while researching your topic, you are required to draw from (and cite) at least four (4) outside sources (not including the literary texts themselves). More importantly, the sources you include must serve a concrete purpose in helping you to advance your argument. Your research should not be undertaken merely to satisfy the minimum requirements of the assignment; instead you must consider the information that will most effectively back up your claims and assertions. Sources may include (but are not limited to) primary historical documents, historical analysis, literary criticism, works of social science, philosophy, and/or critical theory.
