Using Norton, we’ll start with “New Criticism” and move all the way to “Postcolonial Criticism.” This might not mean anything to you to begin with, but as we move forward, you might start to see how each literary movement grew out of the theories that preceded it. This assignment will test your understanding of some of those literary theories and your ability to apply their thinking to a text of your choice (with some limitations). We will repeat this assignment four times throughout the semester (once for each section of literary theories in Norton). Requirements For this assignment, choose one of the critical theories we’ve learned about in the current group. You will analyze one theory from each of these four groups: Emphasis on Text, Emphasis on Source, Emphasis on Receiver, and Historical and Ideological Criticism (we’re studying them in that order). You’ll then apply that critical approach to a single sonnet of your choice from “The Sonnet: an Album” in Norton, p. 989-1001 This work has two parts: • An analysis of the chosen critical theory • A criticism of a text using that theory The analysis of the theory has the following requirements: • Write a passage that is 300 to 750 words long • Answer the following questions about the theory: o What are the main critical approaches espoused by the theory? o What do you believe to be this theory’s strength(s)? o What do you believe to be this theory’s weakness(es)? o Why did you choose to write about this theory? o Offer evidence to support your answers • Proofread and check your work The criticism of the text has the following requirements: • Write a 500 word essay • Include a critical analysis of the poem using the approach favored by the theory you chose in the first part of this assignment • Avoid needless summary • Use proper MLA/APA formatting • Proofread and check your work Submission Submit these two parts as a single file to the assignment link in Canvas. Submit as a Word or pdf document. All other formats will be rejected.

Any topic (writer’s choice)
What was the overall topic of your research essay? Given that it was persuasive, what did you want your readers to believe, think, or do after reading your essay?What workplace or organizational problem does your essay topic solve? What would be the significance of solving this problem?What recommendation or solution are you making to the company or organization? Be as specific as possible and explain how it solves the problem you identified above.What evidence do you have from your academic essay that will help you present your proposal to your intended reader?Who is the intended reader of your proposal? What do you know about this person? How does what you know influence how and what you will write in your proposal?Below is an example of what your instructor will be looking for in your initial response:The overall topic of my research essay was creating a workplace recycling program. My goal in writing was to convince my readers that they should create a workplace recycling program in their own companies. I learned that there are several benefits to doing so, including: * saving money and reducing waste by providing reusable items when possible. * increasing morale by creating friendly competitions * helping others understand the effects of waste on the environmentBelow is an example of what your instructor will be looking for in your initial response:While those are three different problems and their associated benefits, they are all closely related. My specific recommendation to my company is to create an ongoing recycling program in which the company recycles or reuses as much as possible, including toner cartridges, paper and plastic products, glass and cans, and so forth. I propose to do this by installing recycling stations in each break room, providing reusable cups for all employees, and using the money raised from specific product recycling (such as toner cartridges) to pay for team outings. As I was writing my research essay, I found quite a few peer-reviewed articles that support the idea that recycling not only is good for the environment, but also improves morale in the workplace. I think the best overall article I found was this one:Amrutha, V. N.,

analyze one or two of four selected primary sources and make an argument that analyzes
Note, analyzing is not the same thing as summarizing. In your 3-4 page paper you are to make an interpretive argument either about the text or about what the text reveals about some of the key themes we have drawn out in lectures and discussion. Every good argumentative paper should have a clear and concise thesis statement so that the reader knows what you are arguing and why it is important. The argument of this thesis statement should then be argued with a series of topic sentences, the first sentence of each paragraph that states the evidence or argument of the remainder of the paragraph. Remember, in such a short paper you are better served making a well argued and narrow argument backed by evidence from class reading, lectures, discussion, and the source itself than a very broad interpretation. You are not required to use outside sources, but you are welcome to. (But, again, the more specific you can be in 3 pages the stronger your paper will be).Please dont use to big of words and dont make me sound to smart
