Selective Written Literature Review: Due when your team presents,
This paperr will be a collaborative project: with a partner you
will compile a selective literature review, a kind of annotated
what you consider the most
interesting, useful and recent work on one of our novels. Each team will
choose at least 6 different worksof scholarship from the last 15 years
(1995-2010) of published secondary critical work, including
print or online articles, book chapters,
etc. on a chosen novel.
You will divide up the work so that each person in the team chooses at
least 3 publications to read and writes a 150-to-300-word summary of
the argument of each of these 3 publications. Each team will then
compile the 6 total annotated entries into a single paper to be handed
in with both names on it. Help each other proof.
You may list all 6 items in any of three ways: alphabetized; ordered by
date of publication; ranked by quality.
The rule of 3 entries per person, although appearing arbitrary,
actually reflects a reality: you'll find that a suprising number of
scholars demonstrate their command over any given topic and
situate their own work in a field by being able to cite 3 relevant
While each team must do at least 6 such annotated entries, should you
choose do more, you may be awarded with extra credit for the
higher degree of difficulty attempted if you do it well.
7th-ed. form for each entry.
You will turn one copy of this
annotated bliography in to me and
provide each student with a print copy (doc, pdf, htm) OR post a web
copy (or both).
Sharing this research should prove
useful to everyone's final paper.
