How To Tame A Wild Tongue
write a 6-page literary analysis essay that looks at the historical, psychological, feminist, ethnic/cultural studies, and/or close reading of the text. In other words: the essay should be specific and thesis-driven and should have a theoretical framework of analysis. Nota bene: sources should be academic in nature. Please use the Arizona State University library and databases for your source material. The Huffington Post and other online sources are useful for beginning your thinking about a topic, but they are NOT academic sources. Developing Thesis: Ask yourself what interests you about the text(s), and use that answer as a way of guiding you to your own interpretation of it. Then, develop an idea. For example, pick a theme, or a literary motif, such as love and hate, peace and war, life and death, society, capitalism, tradition vs. change, feminism or misogyny, and make a claim about what that theme or motif does in/or for text. Although a summary of the text is needed, provide a unique interpretation of the work. I encourage you to explore the development, and impact of political, socio-cultural, religious, economic, and/or natural phenomena to better understand intercultural dynamics. Format for Papers: All essays must follow the MLA academic format.
