The Tempest should be understood in order to make the arguments the critic wants to make, seems potentially useful as a starting point for your own discussion. Second, you need to find a critic (or critics) whose arguments can be summarized, or more accurately, can be characterized in ways that support the specific claims that you are going to make. Finally, you need to make sure that the critics that you will use can provide support (and support can include addressing arguments that you are intending to challenge) not just for your overall discussion, but also support for specific claims that you want to make. But this sounds far too mechanical, because in fact it won’t be until you have started writing the paper that you will have the kind of sense of how you will use critics that I’m saying your paper must have. As I began by saying, there aren’t any rules that will govern how you do this, and in particular, there aren’t any useful ways to say exactly how your paper should be constructed, or to say how specifically you should integrate the arguments of critics into your own discussion. On the other hand, several of the essays in your text in fact use the arguments of other critics as a framework for what they are doing, and you should feel free to take what they do as a model for your own essay. The paper should be about 1500 words long

    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.
