Poetry Research Sample Paper Key Points: Each time you include information from your research you will need to cite the source of the information. Without including this citation you have plagiarized. We will be using parenthetical citation. Follow the instructions below. o Insert the author’s last name and a page reference in parentheses after the information that requires citation. End punctuation follows the parentheses. Example: (Author’s last name page number). No comma between! o If there is no author use the title of the article and the page number. Example: (“Title of Article” page number). Remember titles of short works like poems are punctuated with quotation marks. When referring to your author the first time in your paper, use both his/her first and last name. Every time you reference the author after this then use only his/her last name. Using only an author’s first name is inappropriate because this is a formal paper. Everything below this sentence represents a final poetry research paper. “Mirror” by Sylvia Plath Tweeted by Brad Smith Mirror is silver and exact. Only truthful Woman searching for what she is. In me a young girl, an old woman, a terrible fish. People look into mirrors every day. Some of us look into a mirror more than once to check our hair or outfit. We never doubt that the mirror will always show us a truthful representation. This obsession with seeing one’s reflection is one of the ideas reflected in “Mirror” by Sylvia Plath. The poem describes a mirror hanging on the wall. The speaker continues to look into the mirror searching for her identity. In the middle of the poem the mirror becomes a lake also reflecting the woman. Faithfully, the mirror reflects that the woman has grown old and ugly like a terrible fish.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
