[1.] An introductory paragraph that indicates the scope of the argument.
[2.] A central thesis that the writer seeks to pursue throughout the paper.
[3.] A desrptive summary of the portion of the poem, the portion of the play, or the portion of the novel under examination. [In a short paper, one cannot cover the entire text of a work; writers must isolate salient details from important segments of the work.]
[4.] A review of the attitude of the critics about the work. [You need not use only literary critics. You may wish to consult psychological journals, sociological journals, or economic journals on ideas you have raised in your paper.] The attitudes of critics may be dispersed throughout your paper.
Students must avoid quoting long passages. It is more desirable to summarize an authors argument. Also, do not end a paragraph with a quotation. Each quotation requires the explication of the author of the paper. The final sentence of each paragraph should be a summary in the students own words or a transitional sentence to the next paragraph. If a sentence count shows that 50 % of a students paper is the students own writing and 50 % is comprised of quotations from critics, the grade on the paper will be divided between the critics and the student (i.e., an A at 4 points will be divided in half, with the student earning 2 points (a C) and the critics getting the other 2 points (C).
[5.] A sustained discussion of a major motif and submotifs where discernible.
[6.] A final segment of two pages in which you discuss the manner in which episodes of the book relate to situations you have experienced or experiences of people with whom you have been acquainted.
[7.] In point of style, students should avoid expletives wherever possible (It is, there are). Begin sentences with strong words and end sentences with strong words. Avoid using the word thing or things anywhere in the paper. Things is a meaningless and ambiguous, though ubiquitous, word, unless you are specifically referring to visible or tactile objects.
