Choose a theme, lesson, symbol, or struggle within the work and analyze the speaker (in poem) or characters (in stories) and how they come to terms or don’t come to terms with their conflicts. In your essay, you may examine how point-of-view and tone (or setting, conflict, diction, personification, imagery, symbolism, etc.) contribute to the overall development of that character, or you may want to discuss the character’s motivation for his/her actions.
Instructions: Compose a critical analysis essay on one of the topics above. Your essay should be well-developed, unified, coherent, and grammatically correct. Refer to the Grading Criteria for MCC English Classes in the First Day Handout for this course. Required length: 3-4 full pages.
1. Create a thesis statement, and back up your claim with support/evidence from the text. You will write your essay on the literature just as you did for Essays 1 and 2. Support should contain clear, specific examples from the story you are analyzing, as well as documentation for all text references. Include at least 2-3 quotations from the literature text in each body paragraph of your essay, for a total of 6 quotations.
2. You must find 2 articles (this is your research) from a Literary Database (Literary Reference Center or Ebsco Host) and use them within your paper, for a total of 6 quotes total from your secondary sources. Remember, a critical literary article is not just a google search, but it is an article written by an expert in the field who is adding understanding and importance to the work. You are to use direct quotes- writing word for word what the source says. Do not use over 4 lines or this is a block quote [look it up]. You may NOT use block quotes in your paper. You can also use summarizing/paraphrasing – taking your source’s information and putting it completely in your own words. None of the paraphrased words should come from the source unless they are terms, names, dates, or places that can’t be reworded. Most of the information you use from a source should be put in your own words. But even this material needs to be cited with the author and page number.
3. When you find a source in Ebsco, look at the right side of screen and click “Cite” then scroll to find the MLA formatting. It does the Works cited entry for you! Copy and paste to your essay and fix any indentions, fonts, etc. to make it work.
*Warning: some of these entries do not list the actual title of the article, so you will need to add that information. Also some entries have all caps or don’t italicize what they should, so be mindful that the citation given to you in the database is not always perfectly correct.
If your secondary article about the story quotes from the actual story, do NOT use those quotes as part of your secondary research. You can get those quotes from the original story, so do not pretend that is your research. Your secondary source research needs to say something enlightening, analytical, interesting about the story, the characters, the themes.
For example: If my source was “Symbolism in ‘A Rose for Emily’” by Judah Hudson and within Hudson’s article he quoted from the story: “They held the funeral on the second day” from page 4 of Hudson’s article but this quote is found in the actual story on page 12, where do I use it?
To access the databases from home, here is the login info for MCC’s library page:
The logins will be provided for the assigned writer.
4. Follow MLA format: Use size 12, Times New Roman font and 1-inch margins; double space. Include a Work Cited page. It is not included in the length requirement; it should appear on a separate page at the end of your paper. Without a Works Cited page and/or secondary sources, you will receive a zero on this assignment because it would not be a research essay, and I say that in the nicest way possible.
Breakdown of Research Essay:
2-3 Secondary Sources from Database. – use at least one time each (but can use more), but you need a total of 6 quotes total from your secondary sources. (So Source # 1 you might just use once but Source # 2 you could use 5xs). Remember: Sources add to your thoughts and back you up. ** Write down/screen shot all source information so that you can document your source.
Each source you use must be in the Works Cited page and the last name listed there should be the one I find in your citation within the paper and after each quote.
Attributive Tag the first time you use a source/author with his or her first and last name and title of article. Example: Julia Wilson asserts in her article “Grassroots of Literature” that Phoenix Jackson knows the entire journey “is filled with grief and turmoil, yet her love drags her on” (8).
Primary Source (short stories or poem)- use at least 6 direct quotes with proper citation.
Outline- required as a grade. Create an outline to organize your information. My suggestion is to form your thesis/argument first, reread the story and underline/copy quotes and examples that prove the point you are making. (Hint: you have to know your point before you do this ; ) Write your essay just like you’ve done with your other essays- using the text to prove your claim, setting up topic sentences, supporting details in the body, concluding sentences at the end of each paragraph. Next you will read the secondary sources you’ve found and skimmed and highlight quotes that the author wrote that makes a point similar to yours or helps explain one of your points or it can be something you completely disagree with and you use the text to prove the author wrong.
Final publish- Make it perfect! It counts 20% of your final grade for this class. Use the tutoring at the Success Center if you need to or even if you don’t need to. Nothing wrong with making a 100 on this! : )

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
