Write a rather traditional research project covering a major work or theoretical question. Should you choose this approach, would expect to write an essay of around 10-12 pages, one that is sufficiently focused, and that considers 8-10 secondary sources in addition to whatever primary source(s) you choose. This essay should either focus on an author, work, or central motivating question which has animated our class.
Research papers cannot contain errors of spelling, grammar, or punctuation. Proofread carefully.
Use quotes and in text citations. However, no more than 33% of your paper can be cited material. You can\’t just string together a bunch of quotes to make a paper. Percentages will be determined by SafeAssign on Blackboard.
Be sure to deeply analyze; but remember this is NOT a commentary paper. Use analytical research that assists you in becoming an expert on the author and work that you chose.
Be a bit crafty. This final piece will be graded more difficulty than anything we have done in class thus far.
