Choose your source text(s) only from the assigned literary works (Use only literary works, not headnotes or editors’ notes.)
Do not use any sources other than the literary works you’re writing about. This is not a research paper! Your insight, interpretation and argument are what matter. This paper must consist only of your writing supported with evidence from the selected literary work(s).
Ensure that your paper’s thesis is an arguable (debatable) thesis. (The resources for writing a literary analysis explain this and provide examples.)
Structure the paper with an introductory paragraph that ends with the thesis statement. Use the topic of each body paragraph to present a point that directly supports the thesis.
Within each body paragraph, use logical reasoning and evidence from the literary text to prove your point of argument.
Include (and cite within the paper) at least three quotations from each literary work you’re discussing, but don’t overdo it’s most of the paper needs to be your own writing.
