Assignment 2: Read About Journals in ENG125: Introduction to Literature for more information about the purpose and expectations for journals.
This week, you continue writing your journal entries. This journal entry is designed to help you document ideas about conflicts in literature, which will contribute to the information required for the Week Three Draft and the Week Five Literary Analysis. Recognizing conflict is essential to understanding the various commentaries literature can provide.
In Journal One, you identified conflict as it might appear in our everyday world and from other sources. Now, consider the following definition of conflict and how it relates to literature from the textbook or the story/poetry links provided under the requirements for the Literary Analysis:
Conflict is opposing actions, ideas, and decisions that hold a plot together...the struggle that shapes the plot in a story.
Chapters 1-7 of our text contain a number of stories and poems, each of which rely on at least one conflict. Choose two of this week’s assigned literary works and write about the conflicts presented in each of them. In 250 to 500 words
As you are writing this journal entry, please review the expectations for the Week Five Literary Analysis, which you are working toward throughout the course
Part One: Read “We Real Cool” and “My Papa’s Waltz” in your textbook. Then, answer the following questions about one of the poems:
Support your ideas with textual details and analyses. When you have answered the questions above, then move on to the next set of instructions in Part Two.
Part Two: Listen to “We Real Cool” and “My Papa’s Waltz.” These clips demonstrate the importance of performance, rhythm, and musicality in the poetic form. Describe your listening experience of the same poem you wrote about above. If you are unable to listen to these poems due to an auditory impairment, please reach out to your Instructor for an alternative prompt for this discussion. Respond to at least two of the following questions:
Support your ideas with textual details and analyses. Address how specific literary elements and techniques contributed to your experience and the conflict. Your initial post should be at least 200 words in length. The minimum word count does not include references
DQ3B: Read the instructions for completing the Week Three Draft assignment.
The draft or outline you share in the discussion needs to meet the specified word requirements (above) and must be double-spaced. You will build on the draft or outline and submit it as your Week Three Draft assignment this week.
Assignment 3: Closely read and take notes on the Literary Analysis assignment found under the Week Five tab. There, you will find complete directions. By this point in the course, you will have discussed two texts, defined at least one conflict, and identified and described at least three literary techniques as specified in the Week Five Literary Analysis prompt.
For this assignment, you will construct a working thesis statement that defines in detail the conflict you will analyze, the two texts you will address, and the literary devices you will apply to your final analysis. Review the Writing a Clear and Sound Thesis for a Literary Analysis for support.
The body of your paper, which will consist of 800 to 1000 words, is to be presented in four sections as detailed below.
Compile a working references list on a separate page that is formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Keep in mind you are writing a literary analysis so please avoid supplying extensive summaries of the texts. Write a summary only when it aids you in describing a specific conflict and/or application of a literary device.
DQ4A: Shakespeare’s Macbeth is often considered one of literature’s greatest tragedies, not only because of Macbeth’s tragic fall from grace, but because of how the play relates to human nature and the conflicts inherent in human nature. In your initial post, please do the following:
Initial post must be 200 to 300 words
DQ4B: In the “Tragedy” discussion this week, you explored the function of conflict in a tragedy and how the conflict is enhanced by certain literary elements and techniques. In this discussion activity, you will focus on comedy.
Sharon E. Cooper’s Mistaken Identity: A Ten Minute Play is a modern comedy that centers on the quest for love and understanding. The function of the conflict in this play and the way the literary elements and techniques enhance the conflict is different from what we studied in Macbeth.
In your initial post
Initial post must be 200 to 300 words in length and posted by Day 3.
Assignment 4: Read About Journals in ENG125: Introduction to Literature for more information about the purpose and expectations for journals.
In this journal
DQ5A: In the Critical Literary Theories handout, four different kinds of critical approaches are presented. Choose two of those critical approaches and address the points below.
Your initial post should be at least 200 words in length. The minimum word count does not include references.
DQ5B: In this discussion, you will reflect on what you learned in the course.
Construct an open-ended question (see How to Ask an Open-ended Question handout) to ask your peers about the literature you read in the class. Avoid asking closed-end questions that require a “yes” or “no” answer. The question should not be overly broad or too general, but focus on specific literary conflicts, techniques, or themes.
In your initial post, please also share what you learned by reading your peers’ posts throughout the class. Review your initial response to the Clugston (2014) quote from Week One: “[T]here’s a powerful curiosity about human relationships and how to cope in the world in which we find ourselves” (section 1.1, “Connecting: Entering Into a Literary Experience,” para. 2). Based on what you learned about literature, what has changed? How will these changes impact your perspective on literature?
This exercise will allow you to engage in a discussion you create with your peers. It also helps you to ask your own questions about literature, which can serve as a gateway to initiating critical analysis. Your initial post should be at least 200 words in length. The minimum word count does not include references.
For this literary analysis, write a 1250- to 1600-word essay in which you do the following:
List of Literary Works
For your Literary Analysis, select at least two works from the List of Literary Works that share the same type(s) of conflict(s). Remember, one of them must be a short story. You can either compare two short stories, a short story and a poem, or a short story and a play.
List of Types of Conflicts Found in Literature
In the document Types of Conflicts Found in Literature, you will find a list of possible conflicts to explore in your Literary Analysis. Please note that you must write about one of the conflicts in the list of literary texts provided. To help you better understand each conflict and how it might be apparent, examples from popular culture have been provided. However, please note that your Literary Analysis must not be about popular culture, television, or movies. The examples provided are just that--examples. Please also note that it is possible for a text to have more than one conflict at work. The repeated references to conflicts in The Simpsons provide further context on how multiple conflicts might be present in a single work. Other examples of conflict are also provided.
List of Literary Techniques
In your analysis, address at least three of the literary techniques (as defined in Chapters 2 and 4) listed in the document Literary Techniques, describing their relationships with the conflict(s)--which provide deeper insight into possible meaning(s) found in literature--you are addressing in your paper.
