Please write a research essay on the play (also called dramas): A DOLL HOUSE by HENRIIK IBSEN.
Remember that this essay has a minimum length requirement of three 1/2 typed pages of text plus the Works Cited page (minimum five pages total). A ½ page is defined as 14 or more lines of text.
This assignment is a literary analysis essay with research. You have previously written a literary analysis essay. This assignment asks you to write another literary analysis essay and add carefully selected research material to support your ideas.
Refer to the literary analysis modules in the Table of Contents as needed, and then browse the dramas listed below. All these dramas have been made into movies, but please be aware that the movie may not follow the actual drama. You cannot rely on watching one of the movies and writing your research essay; you must write about the printed play found in the textbook. Select one to write about and read it several times. Make notes of ideas you might use in your essay.
As you start to draft your essay, look at the material on the elements of drama
Good information about writing a literary research essay, including MLA documentation information, may be found in the textbook on starting on page 1951.
The purpose of this essay is to explain your interpretation of or your argument about some part or element of the play and to cite evidence to prove that your interpretation is valid. This evidence will take two forms:
Direct quotes from the play
Pertinent quotes or paraphrases from books or scholarly articles about the drama found on the LSCS databases.
2 . To start, read the play. Now, read it again and focus on an element of the work that you felt was interesting. Start to consider what sort of interpretation you can form about a theme, character, or symbol (or a combination of two of those). Once you have located your focal point, or your interpretation, scan the work again, taking careful note of all the primary evidence (for example, incidents in the drama) you can use to illustrate and prove that your interpretation, or “reading” is correct, or acceptable to your readers.
3 . Find at least two secondary sources that contain a critic’s ideas about your topic. These sources must be from our LSCS Library databases. You may find these online by going to the LSCS website, clicking on Libraries, and then clicking on Research Databases. There is a general category of Literature Databases that will be most helpful.
Make sure your sources are scholarly; do not use a non-scholarly search system (such as Google) to find material and do not use non-scholarly sources (such as SparkNotes or Shmoop) in your essay.
4 . As you start to draft your essay, select 4 – 7 direct quotations from the play that you are analyzing which support or expand your topic.
5. In addition, read your selected secondary sources carefully and chose 4 – 7 direct quotations or paraphrases total from your outside sources that support or expand your topic.
6. Shape the evidence (your ideas, direct quotations from the play, and quotations and paraphrases from two or more outside sources) around your central idea and write a first draft of the essay. You will need to take your essay through more than one draft before you present it for a grade.
7. Remember that short, direct quotations from the primary (the play) and secondary material (expert or critical articles) are usually most effective. Make sure your quotes are pertinent. Use proper MLA documentation.
Examples of correct documentation are shown in the English 1302 Research Steps to Completion Drama document found in this module, and on pages 1965 plus in the textbook.
8. Introduce your subject by using both author and title of the play in your opening paragraph as well as your thesis idea. Your audience is your classmates. Remember, they have also read the play so don’t merely retell the plot. Avoid too much emphasis on author background information. This is an essay dealing with the play.
9. Create a correct Works Cited page, alphabetically listing your two or more secondary (critical) sources as well as your primary source (the play you have selected).
Steps to Completion:
1. Your research essay of 3 ½ pages minimum of text plus a Works Cited page is due in the proper assignment drop box at the designated day and time. A ½ page is defined as 14 or more lines. No late essays are accepted.
2. To successfully complete this essay, first read the handout found in this module titled English 1302 Literary Analysis Research Essay Assignment. After you read that assignment, look at the list of primary works from your textbook found at the bottom of the document. Then go to the textbook and browse the possible plays to write about. Locate one or two that seem interesting, read them, and then select one play to analyze.
3. In addition, look at the information in “The Literature Research Essay” chapter found in the textbook starting on page 1951. Look also at the document titled English 1302 Getting Ideas in this module. These sources provide good information about starting a literary analysis research essay.
4. After you have read your play several times, start to think about what sort of topic idea you might create. Remember that your literary analysis does not have to be controversial – you are looking for an idea that you can support and that is not overly obvious in the play. Look at the student example found in the English 1302 Literary Research Student Example document found in this module.
5. As you work toward a topic, consider these example ideas based on Hamlet found on page 1396 in The Norton Introduction to Literature, Shorter 13th edition. Which of these ideas is most focused?
Hamlet is about a man whose father has died under mysterious circumstances.
Hamlet has supernatural elements that add to the action of the play.
A minor character of Hamlet, the young Ophelia, sings lines and songs as she moves into madness, and these short songs offer commentary on several major themes of the play.
The third example is better focused and more apt to lend itself to a three ½ to four-page writing.
6. Remember that your best support for your argument is the ideas and words found in the play. Your outside sources (your research) are secondary support.
7. You are working toward a thesis statement that will be found in the closing sentence of the first paragraph. Here is an example with the thesis highlighted (note use of play title and author in the opening paragraph also):
Sad Young Girl
William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet is a complex work of murder and intrigue set in a layered and lavish court atmosphere. Its well-known themes of outside peril to the country, disintegration of the family, and loss of both cultural norms and personal morals are often studied, and Prince Hamlet is both the title character and the best exemplifier of these themes. However, an examination of another character, the doomed Ophelia, shows that the major themes of the play are illustrated by her words and actions as well.
7. As you work through this research project, remember that you can access the LSCK databases by logging into myLoneStar with your username and password. Click on Libraries, then Research Databases, and the click the link for LSC Online Users. Then, when you see a category listing of databases, click on Literature. In addition, you may use the 14 digit number on the back of your LSCS ID for authentication.
8. Please be aware that you might not find “matching” or exact articles on your topic. For example, if you are writing about symbolism in a play, you may find one article exactly on that topic, but not two or three articles exactly on that topic. Spread your research net a bit wider and look at articles, for example, on the symbolism the author used in his play, or in his stories, or in his novels. You will find useable information in this way. There are thousands of literary analysis articles available in our databases. You must spend time looking for the best articles – this process is an important part of research.
9 . Document carefully. You must tell your reader which ideas are yours (and get credit for your good ideas) and you must tell your reader which ideas are not yours by properly documenting in MLA format. For assistance, look at the LSCK library website. That website has useful information and shows proper formatting and documentation. In addition, below are examples of correct MLA documentation.
Note each quote is introduced or incorporated into your sentences. Make sure you identify the speaker. Use the page number or paragraph number where the quote may be located as your documentation.
Here are some sample sentences correctly incorporating quotes in MLA form. These examples are from Hamlet on page 1396 in The Norton Introduction to Literature, Shorter 13th edition.
One of Shakespeare’s most famous lines is spoken by Ophelia: “There’s a rosemary, that’s for remembrance. Pray you, love, remember” (Act IV, Scene 5).
Secondary source – author’s name in sentence using paragraph number when page number is not provided:
Ophelia is just a young girl, but her life options are already limited, and Chapman states that Ophelia’s “avenues to both marriage and the female community of a cloister” are blocked (par. 31).
Secondary source – author’s name in parenthesis using page number:
O ne critic argues Ophelia knows that if she obeys her father, she will limit her future possibilities, but she also knows that “choosing to disobey her father would scarcely be any better in a world that valued daughterly obedience” (Chapman 118).
10. Do not float quotes or offer them as stand-alone sentences. Here is an example of incorrect MLA documentation:
“With her avenues to both marriage and the female community of a cloister blocked, Ophelia seems to fall by default into madness” (Chapman 112). That means she has no possible options.
11. Create a correct Works Cited page. Information may be found in The Norton Introduction to Literature, Shorter 13th edition, starting on page 1962 and on the LSCK website. Below is an example of correct Works Cited entries about Hamlet using MLA 8th edition. Remember entries are alphabetized by author or by title if author is unknown.
