LITERARY DEVICES ESSAY Description : Each student must complete a literary devices essay. In this essay, students will define a literary device and use one of the assigned course readings to illustrate how this literary device is used in that text. Literary devices include (but are not limited to) the following: (((Alliteration, Archetype, Allusion, Allegory, Conceit, Character, Couplet, Comedy, Dialogue, Epigram, Exaggeration, Frame Story, Foreshadowing, Hero, Illusion, Imagery, Irony, Kenning, Metaphor, Monologue, Paradox, Point of View, Personification, Repetition, Rhythm, Satire, Simile, Symbolism, Stream of Consciousness, Theme, Research))) : You need to refer to 2 outside sources in the body of your essay. Use these sources to help you develop your definition of the literary device you choose and explain how this device is used in the text. Appropriate parenthetical references in the body of the essay and a correctly formatted Works Cited page must be included in the document. Your sources must be taken from library databases (or a comparable online academic database). The best outside sources to use are The Oxford English Dictionary, the Gale Literary Databases, and the MLA Bibliography. You may not use SparkNotes, Chegg, CourseHero, Shmoop, or comparable study websites as outside sources. Requirements: The explication essay must be two to four pages in length and conform to MLA format. Please refer to the 8th edition of the MLA Handbook for MLA format guidelines (available at the Bookstore; I also have MLA resources posted on our Bb page, for your reference) and contact me if you have any trouble with MLA format. As with all written essays, standard English grammar, mechanics, and punctuation should be observed. No essay can successfully communicate its thesis without following these rules. If you struggle with writing clear sentences or strong paragraphs, or if you have trouble articulating your ideas, you may want to submit your essay to Smarthinking (available via Bb) to get feedback on your work.

Tips and Hints:The best essays begin with a clear definition of the device they are discussion and illustrate itthrough appropriate references to the text and outside sources. They also avoid repeating everything the instructor has said about the text. Remember, I am looking to see how well you can articulate your own explanation of the text, not how well you can recite course material.
