Research Essay 3
In this rough draft essay, students are required to read two of three pieces of literary analysis I have posted in the CONTENT section of the course. Click on CONTENT on the left side of the page, and the top three posts are examples of literary criticism/ analysis from three different academic journals.
Much biography is given about Dickinson and Heaney in the articles that you can draw from. Whitman and Dickinson are compared as poets with transcendental leanings and interests, and that is certainly something you can also choose to explore in your final rough draft.
For Dickinson, you may also choose to refer to the film “A Quiet Passion,” which we saw in class.
Here are possible topics:
1. How did the poet’s (s’) lives inform their poetry?
2. How did the poets’ (you may select only two) work show similarities in theme and personal beliefs?
3. What similarities/ differences do you note about the works regarding their themes of natural environment?
4. You may choose your own topic, but be sure to make it clear to the reader by including a well-organized and thoughtful thesis statement for your essay.
