Essay on fiction based on two following instructions(Also I attached instructructio separately)
1-(one page outline)
We have to create a one-page formal outline of your essay on fiction. It should be modeled on the style/type of outline mentioned in "Week 1" module. (You can also use the alphanumeric sample outline (Links to an external site.) found on the OWL page as a model.)
Your outline must include:
An outline does not need to include a conclusion (at this point).
Please remember to write enough in your outline so that the reader -- your classmates and I -- can clearly understand what you're talking about. You only need one complete sentence in the outline (the thesis); the rest should be phrases that are long enough to be understood.
By the way, I'm having you share your outlines with other people because that's less scary than sharing your completed essays, or so students have told me. Also, as you clarify your thinking in your outline, then your writing in your essay will be much better.
One last thing. Since this is an essay on fiction, to help your reader understand what you're talking about, please specify where the reader can find it -- what page numbers the story is on.
For this assignment, you may choose to analyze the following story Please write an analytical essay about some aspect(s) of the short fiction. Of course, your literary analysis should discuss the narrative in depth and move far beyond mere summary. Yes, you should summarize the story, but that summary should not be longer than one paragraph. The rest should be your analysis. Strive to tell why the author uses a particular literary device. What does that literary device – or aspect of the story – demonstrate? You may focus on one aspect or more than one aspect of the story -- but don't go overboard on that. The fewer aspects you discuss, the greater depth you'll tend to go; the more aspects you discuss, the more superficial your analysis will seem.
Since each of these stories has been anthologized and discussed for many years, you are sure to find an abundance of critical approaches throughout your searches. (In addition to the Internet, don’t forget to check out our library’s wonderful set of databases.) Please plan to include at least two sources beyond your own brilliance (not including the textbook). When including sources, please remember to incorporate, explain, interpret, and cite those sources correctly in MLA format. Remember that you are analyzing literature, and when you analyze literature, you are making judgments. Don’t be shy about having an opinion! Think in big ideas. And do not feel shy about having your own opinion. What you say has value!
Although you will certainly not address each of these questions, here are some things to consider when drafting your essay.
Your essay should adhere to the following guidelines, please:
Probably the most difficult part of this assignment is to actually decide on what to write about. Read the story -- again, this is a story of your choice from the "Reading More Fiction" section of our textbook (this works for both versions of the textbook, by the way) -- and notice what stands out to you. Focus on those things. Think deeply about them and then do a bit of research (two sources, please) that discuss the same aspect(s) that you are concerned with. Shape your paper to convey your analysis and incorporate these sources as support for your own thinking.
Most of all, try to have fun doing this.
A couple of reminders:
1. Put together an outline first and two of your classmates will anonymously review it. Revise as necessary. (I will review it as well.)
2. You should submit this essay by the end of the week. I will grade it and comment upon it.
3. As long as your work is original -- no plagiarism please -- you may revise it to improve your grade (if you wish) by the end of the semester. Alas, plagiarized work receives a zero and cannot be revised or redone.
