Question description

Format for Assignment:

·  Include page numbers for your document.

·  Quotations may be single or double-spaced but your analyses and short paper must be double-spaced.

·  Include the author’s full name, the title of the text, and the page number (or line number for poems) of the quotation for EACH quotation.

·  Sample quotation analyses with correct formatting are available in Course Information > Exams and Papers.

Assignment: This assignment has two parts.

1.  Quotation analyses (10 quotations): Throughout the semester, you will gather your favorite excerpts from the course readings. Choose 10 excerpts from course materials (this includes novels, short stories, poems, song lyrics, websites, articles, etc.), and then closely analyze each one in a 3-4 sentence (more if needed) discussion of the significance of each quotation. For each, identify the author, title of the text, and page number, and provide some brief context for the quotation. Then, analyze the significance of the quotation by close reading it, examining the language and imagery, and connecting it to course concepts (if relevant). In a sense, you are explaining how the excerpt functions in the text and justifying why you chose it as an important passage.

2.  Short response paper (1-2 pages): Explore the connections among your excerpts and discuss why you chose the quotations you did. This short paper is not a formal essay with a thesis, but rather a response to your choice of quotations. It is intended to be a thoughtful, engaged response and may include personal reactions, as long as you analyze those impressions. In short, think about WHY you chose the quotes you did and write a paper thoughtfully explaining this process and the connections.
