Examples of Key Literary Terms
Review the key literary terms and concepts presented throughout Chapters One and Two. (See the end of each chapter for a glossary of terms.) Choose at least four of these terms to discuss in your post. Then, find examples of these concepts in the readings from this week. Explain how these examples demonstrate each literary concept as well as the effect which the given technique or form has on a reading of the respective text.
Your initial post should be at least 150 words in length.
To complete the following assignment, go to this week’s Assignment link in the left navigation.
In two to four double-spaced pages (excluding title and reference page), analyze one of the literary works from this week’s readings, by completing the following:
• Explain why the literary work captured your interest, using terms and concepts from the text to support your explanation.
• Describe one of the analytical approaches outlined in Chapter 16, using details from the text to support your interpretations.
• Evaluate the meaning of the selected literary work, using the analytical approach you described.
Your paper should be organized around a thesis statement about the selected literary work and the approach you are using to analyze the work. All sources must be properly cited. The paper must include a separate title and reference page, and be formatted to APA (6th edition) style.
The paper must be two to four pages in length (excluding the title and reference page), and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least two scholarly resources (at least one of which can be found in the Ashford Online Library) other than the textbook to support your claims and subclaims. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page.
