Reed / LIB 112 / 8Paper 1: Literary Analysis (5-7 full pages)In-class thesis discussion: 1/22Paper 1 first draft (2 pages)/in-class workshop: 1/29Graded draft (with option to revise):2/5Graded drafted (without option to revise): 2/12Optional revision: 2/261) For paper 1, you will write about Death of a Salesmen. The essay question is below.2) Read the play carefully and attentively. What are the parts of this narrative’s system (plot, character, setting, conflict,narrative point of view, etc.)? How can analysis of these elements help you answer the essay question? Why?3) This paper must be thesis-driven. In other words, you must make a claim that you then spend the duration of the essayproving by way of textual evidence and close analysis. Integral to your thesis should be the question: So what? So you’veproven being “well-liked” is integral to Willy Loman’s vision of success—why does this matter? What are the effectsonthe play, on our engagement with it, on the way the action unfolds, etc.? 4) Do some research and find at least 2 secondary sources that help you develop your ideas more fully. The sources can’ttake the place of your own analysis but they CAN provide you with evidence to support your own ideas. To find sources,consult our library’s research guide (or better yet, an actual librarian): a. Another option: you can also summarize the source’s main point, and then respond to it—agree, disagree, add,using both the play and the source as evidence and example.5) You must use MLA—but use a guide to check that you’ve done your citations correctly. DO NOT GUESS. As youincorporate your sources (both the play AND your secondary sources), make sure you CITE everything. Whether youparaphrase or quote, CITE in the body of the essay and in a list of sources at the end. Refer to the Purdue OWL for help:If you’re nervous, don’t fret! There will be class time to discuss and workshop your theses and also to talk with me! I willalso be posting examples of essays for you to read. If you choose the revision option, your grade will be an average of thegraded second draft and the optional revision.
