Readings: The Norton Introduction to Literature 11th edition by Kelly J. Mays

 

“Writing about Fiction”

 

“Critical Approaches,” pp. 1317-1348

 

Poe, “The Cask of Amontillado” p. 107

 

Melville, “Bartleby the Scrivener,” p. 367

 

 

 

Provide a summary of one of the assigned stories. Make sure your summary addresses the following questions.

 

Setting: Where and when does the story takes place?

 

Characterization: Who are the main characters? Who is the protagonist, antagonist, supporting Characters?

 

Narration: Who is telling the story? Is it a third person omniscient narrator or is it a character narrator?

 

Plot: What is the central issue in the story? What is the conflict? How is it resolved?

 

 

 

Make sure the summary provides a topic sentence that establishes a context for your reader. Keep the summary brief- no more than 5-6 sentences.

 

 

 

Discussion 2: Literary criticism implies close reading more than evaluative judgment about a work of literature. Read in The Norton Introduction to Literature 11th edition by Kelly J. Mays about different critical approaches in analyzing literature, pp. 1317-1348. Look up the term “literary criticism” online and see what you can come up with as an understanding of what you are to do in writing a critical analysis of a piece of literature.

If you don't have access to the book let me know asap & I'll snapshot photos to you. thanks
