Literary Research Paper Assignment This assignment will have: * an arguable thesis about some aspect of a literary text that you have read for this course * a focus on the text as a text (it should not be focused on the "real world") * close reading as a means of supporting its argument * scholarly (peer-reviewed) sources as a means of supporting its argument. Two scholarly sources are the minimum. Your argument should not be a sociological or anthropological argument. Topics Your topic should be a new, creative analysis of some aspect of the text you are writing about. Your central argument should offer us a new understanding of the text. It does not have to be an earthshattering, life-changing realization - the ideal paper will propose a new way of reading some portion of a text, and in doing so offer us a new insight into the text as a whole. Your primary support for your argument will be your close reading of the text itself. Your secondary support for your argument will come through your use of scholarly sources (see below). Topics to avoid: * Compare/contrast essays. Unless you are able to show that one text actually influenced the other, there is no real reason to compare two texts. * Don't have a sociological, historical or anthropological focus. You might write about how an author uses history to convey a particular message, but you may not focus on the historical or social issues. 1. Close reading and textual analysis. 2. Scholarly sources that support your claim, but which do not make your argument for you. Scholarly texts are peer-reviewed journals. They are not newspapers or mass market paperbacks, and certainly not web sources or people online. We will go over this concept in class. You will find sources to back (again, this means support—not make the point for you) certain aspects of your claim, or which provide background for your argument, or which disagree with your claim about the text. You will cite all sources using MLA Format. Your paper must include proper parenthetical citations and a Works Cited page. We will go over MLA citation in class, and you have your handbook and OWL as a reference. *A Few Notes about Required Sources: Your sources must be reputable and reliable. Good sources include the following: Scholarly books Scholarly journals Some websites (We will be discussing internet sources during the research workshop.) You may use popular sources but they will not count toward your minimum and you must identify your intent in using them. Remember that a well researched paper will include a variety of sources. Also, remember that for academic papers, books and scholarly journals tend to provide the best information. All of your sources must be a current (2001 or later) book or article from a scholarly journal. While you will also reference primary sources (your texts), these do not count toward your three required sources. Format Requirements As always, standard font (Times New Roman or Garamond 12-point; not Courier), doublespaced, one-inch margins. As always, no extensive headers or half-page titles. You should turn in a Works Cited page in MLA format, which does not count as part of the length requirements. Writing to Inform: Annotated Bibliography Assignment To prepare you for the next assignment you’ll need to do some research. One of the more useful tools in conducting research is the annotated bibliography. An annotated bibliography combines the citations found in the References list at the end of documents in APA format with annotations about each of the sources. For this assignment, you will construct an annotated bibliography based upon the community issue or problem that you have selected to focus on for the semester. Purpose: An annotated bibliography is an organizing tool that is helpful when working on a research project. An effective annotated bibliography is used to compile research sources in one location and provide the researcher with quick access to the information contained in each source. Audience: This assignment should be directed at your scholarly peers, and you may assume that they have only a casual familiarity with your topic or issue. Content/Subject: Your annotated bibliography will consist of the sources that you have deemed relevant to your topic and/or question(s) of inquiry. While you may encounter sources that are not relevant or do not fit the scope of your project while researching, for the purposes of this assignment, you will only include the ones that you find useful and relevant. Cite the source in proper MLA format. The citations should be organized in alphabetical order by author. Follow with a brief annotation that summarizes the source (approx. 3-4 sentences). You may quote from the source, but do not copy and paste the abstract. All of the annotations should be in your own words. In 1 or 2 sentences, explain the source’s relevance and importance to your issue. Constraints: The annotated bibliography is a fairly rigid genre. Your citations must adhere to MLA format. This will be one of the central components of the grade for this assignment. Failure to follow MLA format exactly will harm your grade. The annotations for each source should follow an academic style. This means that you must construct, with elevated and sophisticated language, correct grammatical sentences that effectively summarize what each source has to say. Additionally, you should explain how each source is relevant to the issue that you have selected and what it adds to your knowledge about your issue. Specific guidelines to follow when completing this assignment are: 5 sources of various types (book, article, website, etc.). Sources focused around a narrowed issue or question of inquiry. Adherence to MLA format for all citations. Sources in alphabetical order according to author. Thoughtful and complete annotations. Correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling. ...

The Tempest Character analysis Literature review
The Tempest is one of the greatest plays developed by Shakespeare, which focuses on
contemporary issues. Shakespeare develops his characters to bring forth some common themes as
portrayed in the society but in a much more interesting way. He combines his years of labor and
philosophy in order to come up with a very interesting play the tempest. The play focuses on many
major themes as the play includes insightful social commentary to critical issues as developed by
the author within Britain during the reign of Queen Elizabeth. The play thus focuses on the struggle
for power by two conflicting brothers both of them want the throne. Therefore, the major theme
that is developed in the play is justice. The Tempest focuses on the influence of the colonialism,
which was in its early, stages during the development of the paly the tempest. Therefore, this paper
provides a detailed literature review on the characters in the tempest as developed by William
Shakespeare in advancing major themes in the tempest play.
Different characters are used to advance major themes as developed by Shakespeare.
William Shakespeare considers the Tempest. Thus in order to effectively understand the play, it is
important to understand the roles played by various characters who are developed by the writer.
The play itself is a masque like comedy although it surpasses by far the majority of those traditional
plays that have been developed by different authors although focus on similar plays. It is a more
of a tale that focuses on the role of magic and wonderworking. The play revolves around a
development of a king a how took advantage of his brother's kindness to dethrone him leaving a

very complicated engagement between the two which spreads across the play with various
characters taking sides. The author bases on when developing the play on this major development
(Shakespeare, 23-39).
According to the McDonald (1991), he advances the theme on colonialism by focusing on
the relationship between two characters Prospero and Caliban. The relationship that is advanced
by Prospero and Caliban in the play is a perfect example of a dependence association that can arise
between a colonizer and the native in whichever colony. Colonialism is a major theme that
Shakespeare relates to. The author asserts that Shakespeare develops the character of Prospero as
an embodiment of all the characteristics that defined the true colonizers such as strength, power,
and control. These characters can be clearly seen in the actions of Prospero especially when
analyzing his interactions with his subjects, especially Caliban. From the events in scene one,
Prospero refers to Caliban as a freckled whelp hag-born. This is very clear that Prospero does not
regard Caliban in high esteem but rather a low life.
Skura (1989) also acknowledges that vast majority of the Shakespeare audience would
have shared the same opinion as that embraced by Prospero. Shakespeare employs the use of
imagery at one point suggesting that Caliban is much closer to a dog rather than being his equal.
This development is very real, and it highlights the real perception that exists within the society
regarding colonizers and their subjects. Prospero is a character that has been hugely developed by
Shakespeare throughout the paly portraying a very strong character comparable to the colonialists.
Despite usurping his brother to the throne, he does not feel any remorse and goes on to have
significant control over other characters in the play, treating other individuals as lesser human
beings as they have no voice.
