Iscuss a particular image pattern or cluster of symbols and show how it functions in one or two works on the course.
The paper must be an argument. Do not simply provide information. You may use
comparison/contrast or cause-effect organization in parts of the essay, but the overall
thrust of the paper must be to argue your thesis.
Be sure to provide a List of Works Cited. Every reference in the text must be listed in
the List; all sources that are in the List must be present in the text. There is a direct oneto-
one relationship between the text and the List of Works Cited. Do not use a Works
Consulted List, which MLA discourages; using such a list may confuse you as to what
you actually cited in the essay. Remember, you must document everything you use.
