Assignment Objectives: Write a 750-1,000 word literary analysis paper that makes an interpretive, evidence-based argument about a pattern in ONE of the following poems: "Invitation" by Aimee Nezhukumatathil "Opera Singer" by Ross Gay "Foaling Season" by Ada Limon (the current U.S. Poet Laureate) "On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous" by Ocean Vuong "The Orange Alert" by Douglas Kearney "The Master's House" by Solmaz Sharif "The Cloud Corporation" by Timothy Donnelly "Trojan" by Jericho Brown You can focus on any pattern in the poem that you like, so long as you make an interpretive, insightful claim about the pattern that goes beyond the surface meaning and summary. Remember that a literary analysis paper: • makes interpretive and debatable claims; • is supported with evidence from the text; • argues for a thesis about the text; and • explores the complexity of the text. To write this paper: The first step is to identify a pattern in your chosen poem. The pattern can be anything – a pattern in imagery, language, sound, structural element, metaphor, simile, and so forth. The pattern could also be a theme that appears in multiple ways throughout the poem, perhaps through a combination of imagery, language, structure, and the like that all works together to reinforce the theme. The second step is to develop an argument about what the pattern means or suggests. It is not enough to just claim a pattern exists; the paper MUST offer an argument about how to interpret or understand the pattern. Chapter 4 in Digging Into Literature explains the patterns strategy of literary analysis in depth. The paper should offer evidence of the recurring pattern from the poem in the form of direct quotes, and then explain how that evidence supports your interpretation of the poem. Review your reading notes and re-read your chosen poem several times. Review the chapters we have read from Digging Into Literature, and use the sample analysis papers we have studied as examples: “Loss in Sylvia Plath’s ‘Morning Song’” (Chapter 3; this paper argues that a pattern reinforces a theme throughout), “Sylvia Plath’s ‘Morning Song’ and the Challenge of Motherly Identity” (Chapter 4) and Sample Essay B: “Contradictory Desires in Michael Ondaatje’s ‘The Cinnamon Peeler’” (Chapter 4; this paper argues that the poem’s theme changes). Remember to utilize the “quote sandwich” technique, the surface/depth strategy, and the patterns strategy. Consult your instructor via Zoom for help developing an argument and publishing your paper if desired. You will need to spend considerable time thinking about your argument and refining it as you write, as well as gathering evidence from the poem and publishing strong paragraphs. This paper cannot be completed in one sitting at the last minute. Format and Requirements: • 750-1,000 words, double-spaced, Times New Roman 12-point font, 1-inch margins, Works Cited page, MLA header, page numbers, no cover page. • For formatting and Works Cited examples, see the sample student paper in Canvas. Click on Files, then Sample Work, then “Sample MLA Literature Paper.” • Outside sources are NOT allowed for this paper. You must rely on your chosen essay only for evidence, and rely solely on your own critical thought to build your argument. This is typical of a literary analysis. • If your final publish is more than 25 words short of the minimum word count, it will be penalized. No exceptions.
