Writing about Literature chapter found in the Paper file
This chapter will be very helpful in aiding you with the fundamentals of writing about literature, ways to approach the material of the text that will open up an effective analytical point for you. In this chapter you will also find sample papers as well as guidelines for MLA citations.
TopicPlease write about something that interests you. It makes such a big difference in how the words come to the page when you are actually interested in your topic. For example, if you have not been interested in setting during the last four weeks, dont write about the importance of setting as it relates to the theme of displacement in Lan CaosMonkey Bridge.
Avoid thesis statements that invite you to summarize the text. Work out a focus that provokes you to probe analytically into the text.
I have set up a Discussion Board Forum (Final Paper Topics and Final Paper Discussion). You can use this to discuss your paper topics with your fellow students. If you are having trouble coming up with a topic, please do not hesitate to email me. I can help you and am happy to do so.
I have placed summaries of our DB interaction in the paper files to help you with reviewing the text you are interested in writing about.
Audience and summaryThe audience you should probably have in mind while writing is: you, me, and the rest of the people in the class. As this is an analytical paper, summary should be kept to providing necessary context so as to make your points clear to the reader.
The thesis of your paper
In the introduction, you should set up what your central point or thesis is clearly and concisely. Keep in mind this central point is the heart of the matter that will run throughout the paper. In other words, you not only present a central point in your introduction. You present evidence and analysis about that central point throughout the paper. And the central point should penetrate into the meat of the book, not focus on a peripheral point.
Please make sure your thesis is focused with a topic + a major claim. Your thesis is the main idea of your paper. To make your thesis statement effective, however, requires you to have two basic parts. The first is the topic, the subject that you are discussing. The second part is the claim, the assertion that you, the writer, are trying to make about the topic.
Body of your paper
Make sure there are at least two sources integrated into the body of your paper beyond your primary source (the book weve read or books). Please make sure there is context for your quotes and referencesdont simply drop your quotes in and expect your reader to know what they mean.
You want to work on being as specific as possible in the body of your paper, weaving claims and evidence. There is a ppt about this in the Papers file.
Reviewing the page on thesis and topic sentences will be helpful in understanding the crucial stage of working out an outline. The best time to do this is after working out your initial draft. At this point you have your initial ideas formulated and are in a stronger position to work out thesis and topic sentence outline:
–Topic sentence 1 in support of the thesis: (make it a full sentence that clearly sets you up to develop the thesis.)
— Topic sentence 2 in support of the thesis: (make it a full sentence that clearly sets you up to develop the thesis.)
— Topic sentence 3 in support of the thesis: (make it a full sentence that clearly sets you up to develop the thesis.)
The evidence should present examples, descriptions, or quotations from the book(s). The analysis should explain why your evidence supports your central point or thesis. You will weave evidence and analysis throughout your Paper.Make certain that you are showing how the evidence supports your claim by showing your thinking that connects the evidence to the claim.
You should have a concluding paragraph. Conclusions (whether it is one, two or even more paragraphs) can be roughly divided into these areas:
It wraps up the essay.
It recapitulates, or restates, your working thesis. We should understand this main thought with fresh eyes, a shifted understanding.
Your conclusion should reflect what we have learned. Dont simply restate your working thesis from the introduction. Some things you are not obligated to do but that might be beneficial for a conclusion:
Provide a brief summary of the paper’s main points.
use a quotation.
evoke a vivid image.
Call for some sort of action
Other tips about writing your final paper
Your writing should be clear; use “correct” usage. Grammar and overall clarity will be part of your evaluation. I do not give out A grades to papers with spelling or grammar errors.
You should be conscious of syntax and diction. Make every word count, and cut or revise any words or phrases that aren’t doing important work for what is at the heart of the matter for you. However, this kind of revision for conciseness should take place only after you have fully explored your ideas, the best ways of communicating them, and the best means of persuading your audience that they are true/plausible. First get your ideas down, then put them as effectively as possible, and only then revise for length, precision, and conciseness.
