Part 1: Literary Terms (Define 5/9 terms)
- define
- illustrate it (demonstrate how it is used)
- name a work that exemplifies this --> look at syllabus!!!!!!
Part 2: Passage Analysis --> provide a close reading (coherent rhetorical) of two
passages (2/5)
- place passage in the context of its genre as well as the entire work from which the
passage is taken, but your focus must be on the passage itself
- discuss formal features in relation to meaning --> how does this piece make its
meaning?
- what are the effects of the formal features of the passage? --> what is the passage
doing to make meaning?
- use literary terminology appropriate to the passage (ex. a set of rhyming couplets)
- 20 points per reading
- 20% per passage **
- separate readings
- think about the passage before writing: underline parts that stand out (ex. repetition of
the first word - anaphora)
- as yourself “so what?”
- pick out parts and then think about the poem as a whole and then the world as a whole
(how the parts give us meaning in relation to the poem, how the poem gives us
meaning in relation to our world)
- ex. rhetorical device that contributes to the meaning of time in the poem, how the
poem discusses time in general
- meter and rhyme
- form pertaining to meaning
- talk about enjambment
- make a coherent statement about the writers treatment of subject matter
- leave some stuff out --> exclude things (can’t talk about everything)
- a coherent statement is more important than covering everything
