EGL 1020 Final Paper Assignment: Crafting a Literary Argument For this paper, you will need to state a position concerning at least two of the texts we have covered in class and situate your argument within the broader conversation of literary criticism. Because you have a variety of texts to choose from, you will need to find two texts that have similar themes or elements to discuss. Choosing two texts that have little in common will not offer a great deal of material for analysis and development. You may find that selecting Oedipus Rex will be helpful because of its length and the abundant material it presents. On the other hand, there is plenty of material in the short stories and poetry to development a well reasoned critical essay. If you are having difficulty selecting two texts with similar themes and/or elements, you can approach the texts from one of the critical approaches we covered(feminism, historicism, reader response, Marxist/economic motivations, etc). Using one of these approaches, you should be able to highlight key scenes, sequences, or language from the texts that support your perspective. Once you have chosen your approach to the paper or topic, you will then need to research criticism about your subject matter and the texts involved. You will need to reference at least 3 different critical essays discussing the texts you have chosen. You argument will be based not only on your own interpretation as supported by the stories/poems you have chosen, but by literary arguments made by other critics as well. For this reason, it is recommended that you look for criticism early in the writing process to mold and shape your topic. Make sure you attach a works cited list to your final paper. It does not, however, count as a page for length. The minimum length for this assignment is five full pages. It is recommended that the length not exceed eight pages.
