How to Write a Literary Analysis

Literary Analysis ENG 125

How to Write a Literary Analysis
It is important to understand that some conflicts in literature might not always be obvious. Considering how an author addresses conflict via literary techniques can reveal other more complex conflicts or different kinds of conflicts that interact in multiple ways. Analyzing those more complicated elements can help you discover what literature represents about the human experience and condition. With this in mind, consider that your thesis might be a claim about how two pieces make similar representations, or it can show two different points of view on a similar issue.

The literary analysis should be organized around your thesis (argument), which is the controlling idea of the entire essay. In the Week Three assignment, you identified two conflicts and created an initial thesis statement in relation to two of the literary works from the List of Literary Works. In this assignment, you will refine that thesis even further and build on your overall argument utilizing the literary techniques below. Reflect on feedback from your Instructor and peers in previous weeks to help you revise your rough draft into a final paper.

For this literary analysis, write a 1250- to 1600-word essay in which you do the following:

  • Revise/develop the thesis from Week Three based on the feedback you have received. Again, the thesis should focus on the conflict(s) you chose to write about. This thesis should provide deeper insight into the possible meanings surrounding the chosen conflict(s) that you see in the chosen literary texts. Throughout your analysis, you must use at least two primary sources and twosources from the Ashford University Library to support your thesis. Watch the ENG125 Literature Research video (Transcript) for help with finding sources from the library for your paper.
  • Review and incorporate instructor and classroom feedback on at least one conflict listed in Types of Conflict Found in Literature from two literary works in this course. One of the literary works mustbe a short story. See the List of Literary Works and Types of Conflict Found in Literature.
  • Analyze three literary techniques to help define and draw out the conflict(s) chosen.
  • Explain how the texts utilize the literary techniques below to describe the conflict(s).
  • Compare and contrast the two texts you chose.

List of Literary Works

For your Literary Analysis, select at least two works from the List of Literary Works that share the same type(s) of conflict(s). Remember, one of them must be a short story. You can either compare two short stories, a short story and a poem, or a short story and a play.

List of Types of Conflicts Found in Literature

In the document Types of Conflicts Found in Literature, you will find a list of possible conflicts to explore in your Literary Analysis. Please note that you must write about one of the conflicts in the list of literary texts provided. To help you better understand each conflict and how it might be apparent, examples from popular culture have been provided. However, please note that your Literary Analysis must not be about popular culture, television, or movies. The examples provided are just that–examples. Please also note that it is possible for a text to have more than one conflict at work. The repeated references to conflicts in The Simpsons provide further context on how multiple conflicts might be present in a single work. Other examples of conflict are also provided.

List of Literary Techniques

In your analysis, address at least three of the literary techniques (as defined in Chapters 2 and 4) listed in the document Literary Techniques, describing their relationships with the conflict(s)–which provide deeper insight into possible meaning(s) found in literature–you are addressing in your paper.

Assignment Requirements

  • Topic: Your paper must address two of the texts, at least one of the conflicts, and three of the literary techniques as listed in the guidelines.
  • Length: Your paper must be double spaced and 1250 to 1600 words in length (excluding title and references pages).
  • Sources: You must utilize at least two primary sources to support your thesis (including the course text) and at least two scholarly sources from the Ashford University Library (at least four sources in total). You may also use other academic sources acquired from other classes that pertain to the literary theme and/or conflict.
  • Elements of Academic Writing: Please see the Guide to Writing a Compare/Contrast Essayresource, which provides information regarding how to effectively organize this essay.
  • APA: Your assignment must be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
    • Separate Title Page: Must include a separate title page that lists the following: an original title, your name, date of submission, and the professor’s name.
    • Separate Reference Page: At the end of your paper, include a separate references page that lists all sources utilized for and cited within your analysis.
    • Proper Citations: All sources must be properly cited according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center, both within the text of your paper and on the references page.

Gallery Design

Your local art museum has asked you to design a gallery dedicated to works of art from one of the following movements:

  • Renaissance
  • Baroque
  • Romanticism
  • Impressionism
  • Modernism

Using your outline from Week Four as reference, select one movement for the design of your gallery.
You will use Prezi to design your gallery. This program allows you to design your gallery as if you were guiding a visitor to each work of art. You may draw from resources in the textbook, the CourseMate Bonus Images, or digital image resources found in Week One that incorporate the characteristics significant of your chosen movement and time period. You may also choose to reflect back on your weekly art journal entries for any works of art relevant to this movement.

Registering to use Prezi is free, and it is highly recommended that you sign up as soon as possible and review the “Learning Prezi is easy” page and the various ways you can design your journal. You can review the Prezi’s “Manual/FAQ” page for detailed information on using the application.

In your Prezi, include the following:

  1. A title page/slide which includes the name of your gallery, your name, the course, your instructor’s name, and the date submitted.
  2. A brief introduction to your gallery, which includes a description of the movement and the time period to which your gallery is dedicated.
  3. Six images of works of art that incorporate the characteristics significant to movement and time period. Along with each image of a work of art, include the citation for the work of art. A summary of how the media (materials), methods, and subject are significant to that time period and region, using appropriate art terminology.
  4. A summary of how iconographic, historical, political, philosophical, religious, and social factors of the movement are reflected in the work of art.
  5. A references page/slide. You must include at least three scholarly sources in addition to the image references.  The ProQuest and Credo Reference databases in the Ashford Online Library are helpful sources of information, as are the museum resources provided in Week One. To locate ProQuest and Credo Reference, visit the Ashford Online Library through the tab on the left navigation toolbar and select “Databases by Subject” and then “Visual and Performing Arts.”

Cite your sources according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, located within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
Please follow the basic modified APA style citation format in the APA Artwork Citations document to reference works of art.
Submit a Word document with your name and the URL to your art journal. Test the URL to ensure that it is accurate and working prior to submitting the Word document.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.

Refer to the assigned reading from the textbook and required videos as examples of how to interpret works of art.
Select a contemporary work of art or architecture from the textbook, museum resources in Week One, or from the Bonus Images in your CourseMate digital resources.

Provide a brief analysis of the work of art using the questions art historians ask and the words art historians use. Consider the media (materials), methods, and subjects of the work of art, and the reflections of the region and Contemporary Art movement.

How do the political, philosophical, religious, and social contexts impact the art of today? How does Contemporary Art differ from Baroque Art, which you studied earlier in this course?

Now that you have seen how art evolves over time and throughout history, reflect upon how your interpretation of art has changed since you examined the Arnolfini Portrait in the “Post Your Introduction” Discussion in Week One. What differences are there between the ways you interpreted that work of art in Week One to your interpretation now? How will these changes impact the way you view art moving forward?
Your initial post must be at least 200 words in length.

Review several of your classmates’ posts. By day 7, provide a substantive response to at least two of your classmates by commenting on how their interpretations of art have changed. How are these changes similar or different from what you have experienced?

Please follow the basic modified APA style citation format in the APA Artwork

American Art Project

American Art Project – writing assignment

As usual, I need the best input I can get on this for a quick grade.  I’ll provide more info as needed, thanks for now.

______________________________

American Art Project  – Pre-Assignment Instructions

Before beginning this part of the assignment, it is necessary to define what is meant by message and context of a work of art. The message of art is more than just the subject matter of the painting or sculpture. Some works of art may portray one image, but when examined closely it conveys a deeper meaning reflective of the period in which it was created. Click on the following link and look at the artwork presented, then read the description of the figures presented there. As you review the information, think about the following questions: Why would Classical and Renaissance images and themes appear in this type of space? What message was the artist trying to send?

http://www.aoc.gov/capitol-hill/murals/apotheosis-washington

Next, take a look at this resource on The Apotheosis of Washington. (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/GPO-CDOC-103sdoc27/pdf/GPO-CDOC-103sdoc27-10-9.pdf ) Concentrate primarily on the text from the second column of page 127 to the end. It gives several clues as to why Brumidi created the image in the way he did, including the events of the Civil War and the beginning of Reconstruction. This is what is meant by context.  The events and attitudes surrounding an event.

Both message and context are important when viewing public art, they will help you appreciate more than just the history the artwork represents. When you understand these concepts, you can view our collective past on a deeper level.

Keep this information in mind as you complete this project. The events surrounding the creation and placement of public art say quite a bit about the art itself. Spend some time thinking about this aspect of the assigned paintings as you complete Part I. This assignment is not an art critique. Look for connections between events and images. We’re not looking for you to describe the event the artwork depicts, but the period of American history in which it was created. Use your textbook to place the images in their correct context.

In preparation for the American Art Assignment due next week, you will, in your own words (at least 200 words), define the term “historical context.” Your final assignment will rely heavily on your understanding of this term. You will be scored for this assignment based on your definition of the term and your ability to communicate it clearly.

Elementary Visual Arts

Introduction:

As a teacher, it is important to understand how the visual and performing arts connect to and support other academic subjects such as math, science, literature, and social science. Developing these connections into a usable resource will be valuable for future lesson planning and curriculum integration in the classroom.

Requirements:

Complete the attached “Matrix Template” (at end of this document) to show the connections between the visual and performing arts and academic subjects by doing the following: (answer these on the matric chart)

  1.  Identify an elementary grade level that will be the focus of your matrix.

Artistic expression

Find an example of a persuasive message that you think is probably well-done, but that you DO NOT find very convincing (this could be an ad, a public service announcement, information about a social issue, or so forth. Analyze the message using the following questions: Why do you think the author/producer thought this message would be effective? In other words, what was the strategy behind the message? Why didn’t that strategy work… why do you think the message wasn’t effective with you? Do you think the message was effective with some audiences? Why or why not? What would it take to convince you about that message? In other words, what would have been a better communication strategy to reach you?

Culture shock

Culture Shock: Describe the experience you’ve had where you’ve felt most culturally isolated. What exactly made you feel out of place or disconnected? What was the experience like? How did you cope?  Would you approach the situation differently today? How so? Adichie warns of the danger of a “single story.”
Describe a significant way that you enact your cultural identity.
•   What is involved? (What do you do or say to express it)?
•   What about this helps establish you sense of identity?
•   Why is it important to you? Would you be willing to abandon this long-term if it made others around you uncomfortable?  Why/why not?

Essay

Choose one (1) of the three (3) reading selections from the list of topic choices below. The focus is on brief but important primary source material written by major authors. Read the selections  as identified with each topic below. Write a three to four (3-4) paragraph essay (250 words minimum) which analyzes the “surprise ending” of the reading selection.
Topic Choices

  • Reading selection from Descartes’ Discourse on the Method (Part IV). Descartes begins with a  proof of one basic conclusion and ends with a proof of something much grander. Remember to focus on the surprise and point of realization, not the details of the philosophical argument. Read Part IV of the Discourse on the Method located at http://www.earlymoderntexts.com/authors/descartes.html. This is only four or five (4 or 5) pages of the larger work.
  • Reading selection of Swift’s A Modest Proposal. It is essential to recognize the genre of this work, as discussed in our class text, which you should consult and cite. Swift promotes a radical solution, but subtle options are mentioned. You are looking for surprise and a point of realization. Read and focus on A Modest Proposal located at http://www.victorianweb.org/previctorian/swift/modest.html.
  • Two (2) reading selections from Voltaire’s Candide. Consider how these readings start and end in terms of the action and the beliefs. You are looking for surprise and a point of realization. These selections can be found on pp. 840-841 in the textbook. In addition, consult the class text at pp. 824-825.

For the reading selection you choose:

  1. Clearly state in your own words the “surprise ending” in the reading you selected. Clearly identify the point in the reading when you realized that there were elements in the reading that surprised you. Not all of the surprises come at the end.
  2. Evaluate how successful the author was in convincing you to accept the validity of the “surprise ending” that was different from what you expected.
