PAPER 1: SHORT FICTION ANALYSIS Mr. Englehardt—ENGL 1023 Suggested Paper Length: 3-4 Pages Rough Draft Due: Friday, February 11 th Final Draft Due: Friday, February 18 th (2 hard copies in class, SafeAssign) For your first paper assignment, you will write an analysis of one short story we have read this semester. Your analysis should identify one important literary element in a story (setting, symbolism, point of view, structure, or characterization) then present an argument for how that element informs—and is necessary to—the meaning of the story as a whole. To get started, you’ll want to choose one story, as well as one literary element to examine within that story. Your goal should be to choose an element that seems significant to the story, but at the same time one that is initially complex or even confusing, because your analysis of this element should lead you and the reader to a new and interesting way of reading the story. You’ll identify the element first, examine its function and detail within the story, then connect that function to a larger theme. Do not identify a theme first and search for an element to support that theme. For example, let’s say that you decide to analyze the image of the Kingfish Fancy Herring Snacks
