In a 2-3 page essay, please write a formalist analysis of Emily Dickinson’s poem, “Hope is the Thing With Feathers”:
“Hope” is the thing with feathers – (314)
By Emily Dickinson
“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.
Here’s what you need to work on before tackling your annotated bibliography:
Your body paragraphs need to analyze characters and literary elements/devices that prove your thesis statement is valid; the reader always must see a clear connection between your body paragraphs and your thesis statement. Once you know what you need to analyze in your body paragraphs, you will have an easier time researching sources for your annotated bibliography/final research paper.
Thesis statement: The theme of the epic centers on anger in The Aeneid by Virgil.
You must provide at least four sources in your bibliography.
In general, each source should be a critical argument about the literature you’ve chosen for your research paper. Sources that only provide plot summary or general overviews are not acceptable (therefore, avoid sources like “Masterplots” articles in GMC Library that consist mostly of plot summary). The sources must provide opinionated arguments concerning the literature, or be clearly relevant to both the literature and topic about which you’re writing.
The annotation for each source should be one thorough, organized paragraph in length.
You must include a brief summary and analysis of the source, which includes the author’s thesis and main points. Then, provide a brief explanation of how the source is useful or relevant to your paper.

Your paper must be formatted according to MLA format (this includes having a header, double spacing throughout the document, appropriate font, etc.)
Use correct MLA in-text documentation as needed.

Novel Analysis Ideas. Be sure that your essay has an argument. The argument should be presented in the introduction, sustained throughout the paper, and adequately supported with evidence from the text. Organize your ideas carefully. Avoid mechanical errors by allowing sufficient time to revise and to proofread. Use MLA format for documentation. Much criticism has been written about Beatrice and Eugene’s relationship and their individual approach to marriage in Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Purple Hibiscus. From a feminist point of view, identify how the presentation of women in the novel could be perceived as objectionable. As you form your argument, consider the following questions: What do women represent in the novel? What definition of masculinity and/or femininity does the novel imply and what is this founded on? Is there an anti-feminist theme based on an idea of the superiority of males? Much has been written about Kambili’s voice in Purple Hibiscus. Do you think she was a good choice for the narrator of this story? Do you think that the tone of this story would have changed if the novel was narrated from, for example, Jaja’s point of view. Or Beatrice’s? Perhaps, even a third-person narrator? Your response should employ a critical element. Write a formal, logical, well-developed essay analyzing Purple Hibiscus that 1) examines the literary elements present in the novel, 2) illustrates where and how these elements create meaning within the text and beyond, 3) looks closely at what the novel says and how it says it, 4) offers your readers a way of understanding the novel that they would find convincing, and 5) uses at least one of the critical approaches discussed in class. You will use one outside source (beyond the examined text) to either support or create tension in your argument. Keep in mind that there is a difference between reading “literally” and reading “literarily.” In this essay, we want to read literarily; move beyond the literal story on the page to discover a deeper meaning. In your analysis, you are encouraged to explore varied and diverse avenues of interpretation. Remember, however, that your analysis must be grounded in the text; you must support your thesis by quoting generously from the novel. Audience: Your instructor and college-level peers—therefore, avoid plot summary! Sources: At least one outside source is required for this essay. Your source must be a scholarly text on the novel chosen from a book or professional journal. The library has access to incredible research databases [http://www.usd.edu/library]. JSTOR, MLA International Bibliography, and Project MUSE are quite extensive and should be your first choices. If you need help in finding an appropriate source, please ask for assistance. The librarians are seasoned in this type of research, as am I, and we are here to help. No websites or other non-scholarly sources may be used. Format: Follow all guidelines listed in the syllabus and textbook. Be sure to follow MLA guidelines. Length: 2200-2500 words Grading Criteria: See “Grading Criteria for English 210 Essays” in course syllabus for general standards. This essay is worth 20% of the overall course grade. Other areas that will be highlighted for this assignment are as follows: You must have an introduction that includes the author’s name, title of the novel, and the thesis. Also, the introduction must draw the reader in and address the larger meaning to be explored in the essay, You must develop a clear, focused thesis statement that explicitly indicates your proposed interpretation of the novel. You must logically structure your essay to support your thesis, and you must follow all grammatical and mechanical rules. You should also use topic sentences in each paragraph that relate back to your thesis statement and help organize and focus your paragraphs. You must support and illustrate the thesis with specific examples from the novel, using MLA documentation. All quotations and passages used as support must be adequately developed and explained. A quote cannot stand alone in an essay. You should not write a plot summary. Your audience has already read the story, so use the action of the story only as it relates to your particular interpretation. Use third person pronouns only. When it comes to a personal interpretation of literature, you are the authority; however, phrases that begin with “I think” or “I believe” detract from your authority and familiarity with the text and make your interpretation look like simple personal opinion rather than an informed, supported analysis. You should refer to the literature in the present tense only. You must use one legitimate outside source in your essay through summary, paraphrase, and/or quotation. You must have a “Works Cited” page. You must submit the complete rough draft of your paper on D2L on October 14 @11:59pm. Remember: A good paper is not only grammatically and mechanically correct. A good paper must also contain compelling content. Avoid superficial and obvious explication such as “the story talks about relationships” or “the story deals with death.” If you are going to discuss these aspects, you need to dig deeper. For example, ask yourself “what is the significance of the death imagery that is used and how does it affect the overall tone of the story” or “why is this story focused so closely on death? What is the message and how does foreshadowing help unlock the message and bring it to the surface?” Many different interpretations are valid, but each must be supported with textual evidence. It is a Novel Analysis of “Purple Hibiscus” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
