First long paper of “Writing In Comparative Literature”

Project description
First Long Paper

Due Date: 6 May 2016

Due Date of Revision: 13 May 2016

Your first long paper will be comparative in nature. You are to write a 5-6 page critical analysis of two texts. One of these texts must be either Heart of Darkness or Light in August; the second text must be an outside text, one that we have not read or discussed in class. Text in this case has a broad range, meaning you can choose a visual (film, painting, photography, architecture, etc.) or a written (novel, short story, essay, etc.) text. Your task is to focus on connections such as themes, motifs, narrative patters, etc. in these two texts. In essence, you will be creating a conversation between two texts by analyzing their similarities and their points of divergence.

In your paper, remember to address how the texts compliment each other as well as how they contradict and modify each other.

As always, your paper should include a clear claim from which a focused and logical analysis follows. Refrain from summarizing the texts. A summary is the what of the text; an analysis is the how and the why. Remember to provide textual evidence that supports your analysis; consider how parts of a text are presented and explain the significance of smaller components to the whole.

Refer to Ramblings in Support of Writing, which is on Canvas. My notes include guidelines that should be met in order to satisfy this prompt.

In addition to submitting your paper electronically, bring in one hardcopy of your paper to class on Monday May 9th for peer review.
