Format
Part 1 (25%): Close Reading—Poetry
Choice: 1 of 5 poems. Disclaimer: Each poem may be complete, or it may
be an extract.
You must correctly identify the author and title of this poem
You will get extra credit for identifying its date (+/-5 years)
You must offer a close reading of this poem
The better close readings will be organized around a unified
theme/interpretation
A close reading is not a summary
Why is this story or information being told in this way? Way to think about
it. Why is it being said in a sonnet, why does rhyme or rhythms matter?
Take a stab at meter
Part II (25%): Close Reading—Prose
Choice 1 of 5 prose extracts
You must correctly identify the author and title of this piece
You will get extra credit for identifying sits date (+/-5 years)
You must offer a close reading
The better close readings will be organized around a unified
theme/interpretation
A close reading is not a summary
Part III (50%) Essay
Choice: 1 of 5 topic prompts
Your essay must be complete: intro, thesis, body, conclusion
Would anyone argue against this? Next Question, So what?
Your thesis should be argumentative and focused
You must address at least 2 texts from the course (poetry OR prose OR
both)
You do not have to quote, but you must use specific evidence
You must stay on topic
Do not merely summarize
Avoid “tennis match” essays
One idea, one theme and one argument
Do not repeat texts or topics form your term essays
Any or all of the three parts of the exam MAY include images—either
among your choice of “texts” (I&II) or as part of a topic prompt (III)
If you choose an image for Part I, or II, you must identify it and close read
it just like you would any text
Your analysis of the image should attempt to connect that image to a
written text
