The reading analysis should be done on the reading that is attached.
Requirements: These write-ups are shortâ€”about 2-pages long (double-spaced). FIRST, briefly summarize the reading (your summary should be less than one page); SECOND, explain a major theme that the work addresses that connects with our primary course concepts; THIRD analyze the effects of one or two of its premier formal propertiesâ€”decisions that the author has made, like an interesting use of simile, setting, symbolism, irony, etc. (ask yourself why this formal property is significant, or how it influences a readerâ€™s interpretation of the work or theme). Each Reading Analysis must cover the work that will be addressed on the day that the assignment is due.
Particulars: – Minimum 2 complete pages; double-spaced; 1-inch margins all around; 12-point Times New Roman font. – Do not add a cover page. – Include a title, centered, that clearly indicates your topic (not just the name of the assignment). – Include your name, my name, the course number, and the date in the upper left corner. – Use quotations and/or paraphrases from our readings, analyze those quotations, and cite correctly in MLA form. – Use MLA citation rules for in-text citations. Include a Works Cited page. – Use conventional punctuation throughout:
