Project #95084 - literature paper

Essay two (worth 20% of the final grade) will focus on two contemporary American poetry journals of your choice for what they tell us about American poetry as it is being written now.  In length, it is 4 to 6 double spaced pages plus works cited page. 

 

Be sure to write a formal essay with a title: subtitle, an introduction, body section and conclusion. 

Document your references to the journals using the MLA style you should know by now from two previous English courses.   Please feel free to ask me questions about the MLA documentation in ask the prof.   forum. 

 

Now your intro. section should say why anyone with a college education should care about American poetry as it is being written now and why these two journals in particular. 

 

Body paragraphs include your observations, comparisons, descriptions of the two journals.   You can use the journal you wrote about in the forum, of course, but try not to just repeat language you already wrote for the forum post as much as possible.   Be sure to include a least a paragraph each on one representative poem from each journal (be sure the poem has been published in the last three years).

 

Concluding section says something about what discoveries, perspectives, experiences, etc. these journals forward, catalyze, instigate .... I hope to hear your own words (I hope everyone uses a thesaurus, yes?)  Imagine if these two journals were the only two pieces of evidence remaining of what it was like to live in America or be an American in the early 21st century.   What might they encourage that person or voyager from the future to infer?  I ask you to imagine this way to help you think about the journals in a larger way than just products of an entertainment industry.    

 

Again, feel free to break the silence of the ask the prof forum.   Also, you can e-mail other students using the Tools bar in the main menu - of course, first ask if they have your permission to send e-mail.  That's the polite way to start.
