English 1102 Research Assignment For this project, you will make the case that “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” “A Rose for Emily,” and “Good Country People” are examples of Southern Gothic literature by your own original analysis as well as the skillful and accurate incorporation of required research. The demonstrated ability to use MLA 8 th edition formatting and documentation style is as important to the project grade as the content of the essay, so make sure to pay equal attention to both.

How does “A Rose for Emily” qualify as southern gothic literature? You will organize your research paper around the answers to these questions. Your research project will be 1500-1800 words .

All of the required resources that you will use for this project are available online via GALILEO, web sites, or CTCs library guides.
