read a poem from the first week and submit a 3 paragraph (intro, body, conclusion) RESPONSE on CANVAS in the BIRD folder by TUESDAY THE 7th. Apply either biographical, historical, Marxist, or cultural criticism (whichever is APPROPRIATE), quoting directly from the poem and also quoting from at least TWO VALID educational secondary sources, such as those available through Ebscohost and Gale. Include an MLA formatted Works cited as well.
If it is accepted it will count for two RESPONSES (you need 5 COMPLETED for the semester).
BE SURE TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY TO MEET MINIMUM STANDARDS. Check Canvas for a reply from me by Tuesday. Keep in mind that this is for the recipients of this e-mail only.
Basic formatting: Responses are simply three paragraphs. You only cover one critical perspective in a response. You’ll have a short, two or three sentence introduction, a long 15 to 25 or more sentence body paragraph, and a short, two or three sentence conclusion. Each perspective is a single body paragraph. Each body paragraph is a single critical perspective. All quotation goes in the body paragraphs. the purpose of the introduction and conclusion is simply establish the argument. Do not use quotation or cite any statistics or a quotation in the introduction or conclusion. Do not give me a biography of the author, especially if your argument is based on the author’s life as evidence. That informational belongs in the body paragraph. Your research should be applied to the body paragraph as evidence in support for the claims that you are making. you should have multiple quotations from the primary source (your poem). You are analyzing a poem, not the issue. Everything is going to come back to the primary source. if you have no author listed, you cite by the title of the article. You are required to have quotation from at least two different secondary sources for every body paragraph. Paraphrase is not enough. your work cited lists to items from the same author, both with the same title. Since it is unlikely that the author wrote a response to his own poem, you’re probably referring to a work that was written by somebody else. In any case, you only need one listing of the poem itself and the English Journal version is sufficient. I’m guessing that the first item that you list is actually ABOUT that author, not by him. That means the authors names actually type would be a quotation mark. Any quotation from that work would be cited with the title, which would be the author’s entire name in quotation marks (“Wilfred Owen” 496). That would distinguish it from the poem itself, which has no quotation marks and citation and only offers the author’s last name (Owen 6). If for some reason you have more than one work written by the same author, you list the two items in alphabetical order relative to each other in the list. You remove the author’s name from the second item and replace it with three dashes (– – –) to indicate that BOTH of them will be cited in text by the author’s last name and the title. content: Biographical criticism is a critical perspective that essentially applies when a work is literally autobiographical. This work is not autobiographical. Owen doesn’t even use first person. While it is true that the author did suffer injuries from World War I, none of the injuries that are described in this particular poem relate to him. Furthermore, he was not a soccer star, nor was he popular with the ladies (he was gay). He is taking his experience as an injured soldier and creating a completely fictional work in order to editorialize on what he perceived to be the mistreatment of recruits. When you are discussing the author’s message and the reason why he feels that way (as well as identifying the audience) you are applying MARXIST criticism. Marxist criticism is a critical perspective that examines the author’s method to reach a particular audience with a message. You would use the biographical information about the author’s own experience, as well as overview of his work by other literary critics, to establish that this writer did all his works on a narrow subject in a very short convalescence in between serving in active duty, the second of which resulted in his death. Do your research and find out what actually is relevant to him biographically and what is fiction, a reflection of his ATTITUDES. Then label this as Marxist criticism. Revise and resubmit. You have one week

Basic formatting: you do not have to cite paraphrase of easily researched information. You MUST use DIRECT QUOTATION from at least two different resources in your paper. Paraphrase is not sufficient. MLA style requires quotation because people translate phrases and words differently. We need to know what words you are using to either translate the work or criticisms of the work. Use quotation. Citation of the poem gets credited to the author (Owen). Do not cite another author (Rehman) for the primary source unless it is embedded in a larger quotation in which that other author is actually providing some analysis or information. content: You must separate the author from the character. In several places in your essay, you are making statements that essentially say that the author is describing himself in the poem. The paraphrase that you credit to Borsay implies that the author had the exact same experiences as his character. That is factually incorrect. Imprecise wording can lead to confusing references. In essence, you are conflating the author’s own experience with the fictional experience of the character in the poem through your phrasing. In the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth stanzas, Owen describes his happy days in the battlefield such as how he attracted ladies as a handsome young man, how he lied concerning his age to join the military, and how the society cheered him in the battle (Borsay, 500). The author did not attract the ladies. He was gay. He was not underage when he enlisted. He was about 23. Your sentence needs to be rephrased to indicate that Owen is describing the happy days of the character in the poem. Also, as I mentioned before, you do not need to cite paraphrase of easily found information. You’re not giving Borsay’s opinion of anything. You’re simply reporting the plot of the poem. Word choice: “sustaining an injury” refers to the actual incident as to when the injury occurred. The author did not sustain an injury while in the hospital bed. He was recuperating from injury. Try this again. If you have any questions, let me know. Fix this by Wednesday if you do not have quoted text from at least two different secondary sources and body paragraph, it will be rejected.
