Write and submit a paper of 3,000-4,500 words about the play for which the Annotated Bibliography was completed. The paper will be a critical study of a theme, character, or development of the play, and will include a discussion of the play's textual background and source material. Textual Background: Using Norton Shakespeare: Based on the Oxford Edition and other sources (if necessary), summarize in your own words where we got the modern text of the play you are writing about. Pay special attention to any differences between different original versions from which we get our modern text. Be sure to cite whatever sources you summarize. Sources: Shakespeare got parts of most of his plays from other people's writings. What are the main outside sources he used to write this play? (Start from the information in the Norton Shakespeare: Based on the Oxford Edition, and examine the sources yourself, if you can). Summarize the information about where the play came from, unless you have a chance to examine some of the sources in detail. If you examine a source in detail, talk about your own conclusions. Analysis: Develop an argument you will present about a particular interpretation of the play by analyzing a theme, a character, a plot development, etc. Make certain that your analysis is focused on one aspect of the play, craft an argument that you will then prove with your writing by drawing on primary and secondary texts, and avoid unnecessary summary. Works Cited: Works cited should be annotated, but should not be included in the final word count. The final works cited should include at least 10 secondary sources that deal with aspects of the play.

    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.

    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.
