his option requires a 4-5 page paper (double-spaced, normal 1 – 1 1/2″ margins, and 12 point Times New Roman font) that explores the narrative form, content, and function of your chosen text (film, novel, short story, or poem(s) from outside of class). Your paper will have an identifiable argument and it will analyze the text by focusing on some of the elements that we have discussed in class. You will not use outside research for this paper–you need only your brain and the text. Think of this paper as a sort of extended and more formalized version of the argument papers you have been writing this semester. Some of the main differences are that this paper will include an introduction/conclusion, a concise explanation/summarization of your text, and a more extended argument. Also, the expectations for a strong argument and quality analysis are raised for this paper.
