Nalysis of Literary Criticism about Orangesof Gary Soto

English 1 B a Analysis of Literary Criticism
At its best, literary criticism helps us explore and delve more deeply into stories, poem and plays in ways we may not have thought about ourselves and to gain insights and plays in ways we may not have thought about ourselves and to gain insights into how history, biography, culture, political or philosophical ideology, gender influence the various aspects of a work. Literary analysis varies in its focus and purpose. One article might look at a particular symbol in a story or a poem, another at the use of a theme over a number if an authoras works.
Your Job in this essay is to fund two pieces of literary criticism from a reputable source read and evaluate it and then argue for/against the criticas opinion using your own analysis of the work to support what you say. Below are the steps you should follow:
1. Find two separate analyses by literary critics about the Poem a?Oranges by Gary Sotoa?. Sources need to be from reputable literary journals, not just the internet. Check the Gale Literary and other indexes in your library to do connect to literary Journals.
2. Bring your articles to class and be prepared to share and discuss both with a partner
3. Write an essay in which you discuss the main points of one article and then agree/disagree with each. Agreeing/disagreeing will entail bringing in your own analysis of the work in question. This is not an either/or issue though. You may agree with some points the author makes and nor with others. But discuss why you agree or disagree and support your ideas with analysis and quotes from the text.
4. Use MLA format for in-text references and a work cited
5. Attach a copy of the critical article to your final draft so I have it to refer to.
Some suggestion to organize your essay:
1. In the introduction, give us a brief overview of the article itself-what is focuses on, its general orientation, position and point of view. (do not summarize the whole article in the intro but give us enough that we will what it is about and what its overview is) Then, in a clear thesis, state whether you agree/disagree and why? (your reason)
2. Take each major point of the article one by one and state what it is, summarize it, including how the author supports his/her points and then discuss your views of it. Do you agree/disagree and in either case why do you? Develop your agreements with in depth explanation and examples/quotes from the original story, poem or play.
