Create a thesis statement, and back up your claim with support/evidence from the text. Support should contain clear, specific examples from the story you are analyzing, as well as documentation for all text references. Include at least two quotations from the story in each body paragraph of your essay, for a total of 4 quotations from the story/poetry. *See handouts about how citing poetry is different than stories.



  1. Explain how the speaker’s perspective effects his (as all the speakers are male) view of the world, especially concerning what he views as right or wrong or as positive or negative.
  2. How do the speakers in Blake’s poems reveal their perspective of innocence and their perspective of experience?Analyze how the speaker’s perspective adds meaningto Blake’s social critiques (consider all aspects of society that he targets).

Paper requirements:

  • MLA format

  • Precise two partthesis with a claim and a sense of purpose that references the literature (through author, title, or character)
  • Cleartwo part topic sentences that support the thesis and include a reference to the thesis
  • 2 Body paragraphs with 2-3 specific examples with 2-3 sentences of analysis for each example
  • Transitional phrases to connect sentences and ideas smoothly
  • Insightful conclusion that connects the theme of the work to something more universal
  • Works cited page

For the Works Cited page. It is not included in the two-page length requirement; it should appear on a separate page at the end of your paper. You will automatically lose 20 points for not including a Works Cited page.



  • Before beginning your paper, read the writing handouts; use them as a guide while working on your essay as well.
  • Use the outline form on the next page to plan your paper. You may write/type directly on the form or on a separate page.
  • After completing a rough draft of your essay, use the handouts in Canvas to make sure you have done everything correctly before submitting your essay.

Remember that when you write about literature, you should write in present tense, not past tense.  You should write as if the piece of literature and the characters are as alive today as they were when the novel was written.

Parenthetical Citation from the Text:

You must use at least 4 direct quotes from the text within your paper to prove your point.  A direct quote is writing word for word what the source says.  Do not use over 2 lines.  You are to put these words in quotation marks and cite the page number from which you got the information.  You can also paraphrase quotes from the book, but this too must have a citation.

Example: Nick says, “I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the  inexhaustible variety of life” (46).

You may lead into the quote with a colon if you have a complete sentence that prepares the reader for the following quotation.  The sentence before the quotation must support it.

Example:  Nick feels isolated from the outside world while he is at Tom and Myrtle’s party: “I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life” (46).

Do not use a drop quote, which is a quote that begins a sentence with no lead-in or introduction.


With poetry, you need to separate the lines with “/” slashes. You also cite line numbers instead of page numbers with poetry.

Example: The speaker reflects,”What did I know, what did I know /of love’s austere and lonely offices?” (Shakespeare lines 13-14). The slash appears after “know” because that is the end of the line and the next line begins with the word “of
