Ritical essay on a NArrative Work (novel or short story)

Critical essay Topic

Professor Instructions.
The task is to choose a narrative work (novel or short story only) and to analyze it according to one of the narrative elements: characters, setting, structure, symbols, theme, plot, climax.
For example, you could choose Dickens Christmas Carolas your subject work and do your exposition explaining what each ghost symbolizes. You will structure the essay in five paragraphs and the subject work (Christmas Carolin this instance) will be used for quotes that prove your point. You will also include quotes from the critics (at least four sources plus the subject work) that support your ideas. Be sure that your essay does not just tell the story line of your subject work. This assignment is NOT a book report; rather, it is an analysis of some aspect of the work. Think of it as summarizing what critics have to say about the work.
Be sure to include all of the pages necessary to this formal, documented research report: title page, outline, essay of no more than 5 paragraphs with at least 5 quotes from the subject work and critics in APA notation, and at least 5 bibliographical sources in APA notation. Both endnotes and bibliography will include the work which is the subject of the paper. Also, make sure that you underline the thesis and the preview of the essay. The thesis should include the author?s ful name, title of the work( in quotes, if a short story; underline, if a novel). For example: Color Symbolism in Stephen Crane s Novel, The Red badge of Courage; or Characterization in Hemingway s Short Story,  A Clean Well Lighted Place
You can choose your subject work from any free database of online works and download a copyright-free printout. Christmas Carolis only one of many choices. One database is of Short Story Classics at :
books. You can search by subject, author or title and download any or all of a work.
The database that has the best criticism (and a capsule biography of the author) to use for critics quotes is part of the Miami-Dade Library. It is the Gale Literature Database at:
Follow the link that says Find Articles. These databases may require you to log in using your Miami-Dade ID: Narjara.Borges001 and password: NarjaraB. Choose Gale Databases. Log in as kendallcampus (lower case, all one word).Then, from the list of Gale Electronic Resources find Literature. When you open the Literature database, state your author and hit the tab marked Criticism.This should give you more than enough sources. You may also draw from the other tabs in Gale like Biography etc.
You can supplement these sources with the MDC database called Academic Search Premier that is at LINCCWEB from the Find Articlestab. For this one, log in with your authentication number: D28777750 or 6029 2200 0394 1265 and the password is the last 4 digits of your social security card: 6538.
You MUST use these MDC databases so that I can check your sources. You may NOT use any proprietary or login or credit card database that I cant get into. I must be able to check all sources. You may use a Google source ONLY if I can get there and check it. Remember, this will go to Turnitin.com
