In a research paper of approximately 1000-1500 words (5 pages/12 point font/double spaced) write an argument advancing an interpretation (claim) of one of the works covered over the semester.  Select any of the prompts from the last two papers (see prompts for poetry and short story paper – and yes, you can use the same prompt which you already worked on for a prior essay and expand on your previous argument) as a basis in constructing your interpretation or develop a thesis of your own.  Your essay must utilize specific textual examples as well as references from at least three peer reviewed secondary sources (peer reviewed sources include books and scholarly journal articles obtained through the PBSC online database, not websites and Wikipedia)

Now that you’ve gotten lots of practice reading and interpreting literary texts,

Now that you’ve gotten lots of practice reading and interpreting literary texts, and have seen how the pros do it, it’s time for you to join the conversation. Your writing assignment requires you to conduct substantial research in order to discuss a topic of your choosing. Choose your text from our syllabus, formulate an interpretation of a particular aspect of that text, and then locate and read at least four outside sources concerning some issue germane to your topic. For example, you might find four sources discussing Daoism in Journey to the West, or the character of Mephistopheles in Faust. Evaluate each source’s reading in light of your own. What are the common topics? Does your research enhance or contradict your interpretation? Finally, write a well-developed, coherent essay that synthesizes your four sources’ arguments, and advances your own position on the topic.
<

<

<
While you will be focusing on your own argument in this paper, you must still present information from your sources as fairly as possible (as you did in the explanatory synthesis). You will be arguing for a position on the basis of a reasonable consideration of the information and arguments presented by your sources. Be mindful that your own argument will require that you make an explicit claim, present adequate support for it from your research and from your primary text, and articulate your assumptions so that the relationship between your claim and its support is apparent.
<

<
This essay requires that you focus on contributing original ideas to inform the debate or enhance the understanding of your research topic. The essay should spend most of its time advancing your argument. You accomplish this by gathering information, considering its validity, endorsing it or rejecting it accordingly, and challenging those sources with your own questions on the matter. This rhetorical stance should lead you to take an active role in establishing the direction of the “conversation” and communicating the importance of the research to your readers. You will be evaluating sources on the basis of the information and arguments they presented, but you will also be trying to ask and to answer questions your sources are not considering but should.
<

<
Once you have begun your research and have a sense of the issue/topic, begin by asking yourself the following questions: How does my reading of the primary text relate to the readings of my sources? Is there a perspective/solution that is not being considered? What’s so particular about the nature of the issue or the way the scholars talk about it? How did this problem/issue come about? What else do we need to know in order to endorse a position? Why should this issue/topic matter to the readers of my essay? How does my argument shed new light on the primary text?
<

<
Be mindful that your own argument will require that you make an explicit claim (thesis) and present adequate support for it from your primary text. Acknowledge what groundwork your sources have laid, and then use your own argument to advance that work. Ultimately, you will use your research to engage in literary analysis—an explanation of how your primary text works (or acquires meaning) on the basis of its particular features.
<

<
Pre-Writing
<
You will consider consulting various sources and databases available such as Mullins. Internet sources or Wikipedia are strongly not recommended. Use all the skills at your disposition to write down every detail of your research, organize your arguments and include the timeline of your work. You could also consider looking for samples of research proposal.
<

<

<
Introduction
<
Your introduction will emphasize the importance of your research and how your analysis differs from what has been said previously.
<

<
Revision
<
Always give yourself enough time to revise your paper. The best option for you is to share your work with a classmate or a friend, who can read it for you. At this point, respecting the timeline is critical. Allow the reader a few days to do the corrections appropriately.
<

<

<
Citation Style
<
Use one documentation style (e.g., MLA; APA; Chicago) consistently to attribute information and expression of ideas to your sources. Every time you quote or paraphrase from the sources provide the corresponding parenthetical citation. The last page of your essay should be a “Works Cited” page, which, as the name indicates, lists the sources to which you made reference in your essay.
