Identify a theme explored in that text and devise a thesis about what the text is saying about that theme. Your essay should be historically informed, meaning you should discuss its historical context and how that context is relevant to the meaning of the text. If you choose to write about one of the short poems, you should do so in the context of other poems from the time period (ones we have read or ones you research), which you may compare to the poem you select.
Your goal is to examine how the text contributes to the intellectual debates and concerns of the time period in which it was written. Because this is not a full course on a specific literary period, you may end up with a weaker thesis than you might otherwise. I will naturally take this into account when I do the grading. But you should try to learn through research what you need to know about the period in which the text you have chosen was written.
Your essay should develop ideas you encounter in reading peer-reviewed scholarly research about the text or its literature, and you should properly cite the scholarship you use. Research is required for your essay, but you are not required to cite a minimum number of articles. It is up to you to decide what is appropriate for your argument.
Grading Criteria (provided by professor)
I will be looking first and foremost for evidence that you have learned about the mechanics of formatting and editing for a scholarly audience as discussed by Acheson and in our class handouts. The essay should be edited for typos, formatting mistakes, and conformance to MLA or Chicago style conventions, as well as appropriate ways to introduce secondary sources. If it appears that you have not applied the guidance in the handouts in the Modules section on Canvas, I will skim the rest of the essay, and there is practically no chance that your grade will be above a C+.
Demonstrating that you have used the handouts is of paramount importance to your grade.
Have you used secondary research effectively in formulating the thesis for your discussion? Are the materials you cite from peer-reviewed sources? If you have not cited peer-reviewed sources, I will skim the rest of the essay, and there is practically no chance that your grade will be above a C+.
Do your citations correctly follow MLA or Chicago style conventions?
Demonstrating that you have used the handouts is of paramount importance to your grade.
Have you used historical information appropriately to support your interpretation of the text?
Have you provided information about the text that is relevant to a reader who has read the text and knows its author and plot? Are your quotations of an appropriate length, and do they contain wording that is of interpretive significance (as opposed to just telling me the plot)?
How organised is your essay? Do you have a clear interpretation of the text’s significance for the theme you describe? Are your individual points supported by textual evidence?
Does your essay begin with something like “Doctor Faustus, by Christopher Marlowe…”, which tells me that you are still writing high school level essays? That will instantly lower your grade.
Did you check whether you have any apostrophe errors?
