one 6-page essay ( Times New Roman
12, double-spaced, including bibliography) on some of the works
discussed in class. The paper should include textual analysis of at
least one text, as well as well as comments on, or comparison between
translations of the original texts. The paper should analyze the
original text in its original cultural and historical context, and
discuss its influence on Ango-American literature and culture. The
final paper should be a research paper. In other words, students must
use (and quote) not only the literary texts they are writing about, but
also any relevant critical, theoretical, historical, or biographical
literature. Students have to do their own library and Internet research,
and document all sources using the MLA style. At least six sources
should be listed.
