GET ANSWER – Instructions: The Analysis Paper is a focused research essay that performs a “close reading” of one of the approved works of art or literature from the course material.
Your essay should offer an analytical interpretation of a single work of art or a single work of literature by having a thesis about what that artifact seeks to express, how the artist or author accomplishes this expression formally, as well as the relevant historical context.
Two outside sources are required. You may have more, although in a paper of this length, more than four will limit the possibility of clearly developing your own analytical voice and focusing on supporting your thesis.
A note on sources: The provided course material does not count as an outside source.
Peer-reviewed sources are journal articles, books, and quality multimedia such as documentary films or educational videos from museums. Sources may be primary (such as a letter or publication by the artist him/herself) or secondary (such as scholarly criticism or historical research).
Any and all sources must be documented correctly using MLA citation.
The paper should be four to five pages, at least 800 words, no more than 1,250 words, and be typed, double-spaced in MLA format.
