How does literature reflect society? How does literature relate to social issues? With those questions in mind, provide a literary analysis of the reading of your choice in the Select Readings folder. From there, provide a larger analysis of the role of literature in society. You must link the analysis of the select reading to the larger discussion about literature and social issues. Write a 6-8 page research paper based on a literary work in the Select Readings folder. You will present your research on the last day of class. This is both a research assignment AND a literary analysis. The essay MUST connect your research to the content of the literary work, and you must cite from the literary work in addition to your secondary sources. The essay must use at least three academic sources in addition to the literary work and include a Works Cited page. Feel free to incorporate non-academic sources in addition to the three required academic sources. The essay must be a minimum of 6 pages BEFORE the Works Cited page. Your essay must use quotes from the novel and cite your sources using MLA style. See the MLA chapter of the Writers Reference textbook for how to use MLA formatting. The essay should be double spaced, 12 point Times New Roman font. Please email the essay to me by midnight on Tuesday, 7/7. LATE FINALS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. -The poem that I have sent is to be referenced throughout the entire essay.
