you will be assessed according to your ability to:
Apply the terms and concepts encountered on the course to particular texts in a variety of genres;
Adduce evidence of critical engament with the debates about literary atudies and questions of interpretation encountered on the course;
Develop interpretative and analytical skills evidenced in a sensitivity to question of form and their role in producing meaning.
Titles of Works Cited
Whenever you refer to a book, play, film, journal or long poem, always underline or italicise the title. Titles of short poems, essays, or chapters, though, should be put in single quotation marks without underlining: this distinguishes them from book titles which may otherwise be the same.

Short quotations (one line or less of verse, five lines or less of prose) should be run on as part of your own text, within single quotation marks. Longer quotations should be indented, and left without quotation marks. Verse must always be quoted in lines, not re-arranged as prose. Do not use italics for quotations.

References and Citations
When referring to (or quoting) passages in the primary literary texts you are discussing, give a brief line reference (from poem or verse play) or chapter reference (from a novel) in brackets after your quotation. This saves you from writing out countless endnotes, and actually makes it easier for your reader to trace the quotation if s/he has a different edition of the same text. But the text you have used must be listed properly in your bibliography.

Otherwise, for all other quotations and references, you will need to use endnotes (at the end of your essay) or footnotes (at the foot of the page). Endnotes are perfectly acceptable; only se footnotes if you are certain that you can manage this tidily. To do this properly, place a number (in small superscript-i.e. above the line) after each quotation or reference in your text; then provide bthe information about your source in the numbered footnotes or endnotes. This information should include; author, title of book (underlined or in italics); place of publication; publisher; date of edition used; page reference. If you are referring to an article,, give its title (in single quotatin marks) before that of your journal (with journal volume number; no publisher or place of publication required) or book (underlined or in italics, and with name of editor) in which it appeared. For example:

12. Gillian Beer, Virginia Woolf: the common ground (Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 1996), pp. 5-6.

13. Catherine Belsey,  love in Vence , Shakespeare Survey, 44 (1992), p.43.

14. Linda Hutcheon,  Telling Stories: Fiction and History , in peter Brooker (ed.), Modernism/Postmodernism (London: Longman, 1992), p.237.

At the end of your essay, you must give a list of all works you have consulted while preparing it (even if you have not quoted them all). The list should be alphabetical by authors surnames first (e.g. Beer, Gillian). The bibliography must be separate from any endnotes or footnotes, but of course without the page number.
