You will address one of the readings from a historical point of view. Remember, “New historicists attempt to define a period in all of its dimensions, including political, economic, social, and aesthetic concerns” (Meyer 656).
You will address one of the readings from a historical point of view. Remember, “New historicists attempt to define a period in all of its dimensions, including political, economic, social, and aesthetic concerns” (Meyer 656). For our purposes, you can research one of these dimensions to help you further your analysis of a text’s themes. For example, if we were to write an essay on “Sonny’s Blues”, we would identify the “African American experience in the military.” We would use this historical note to help us understand why both of the characters (Sonny and his brother) decide to join the military. Perhaps it will lead us to a new discovery of the text. From this historical approach, we can offer a new reading of the text.
Follow MLA guidelines. Your paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook.
ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite in-line.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
