-This assignment should be from 2-4 pages long, typed and double-spaced.
Each student will write a response to any work or works studied this term (except for Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare in Love, or Li Po). This is a free-ranging, interpretive assignment, worth 20% of your mark: unlike with the essay summaries, the professor is particularly interested in your personal views of the subject. Think of it as a conversation between yourself and the work youâ€re writing about.

Getting Started: Ask Important Questions
If youâ€re having a problem getting started, start by asking some basic questions about the work youâ€re writing about:
1. Why was I interested in this work? Was I emotionally moved by the work? Why and how?
2. What is the theme of the work, and why is it important? Did I learn something from the work? Did it make me think about the world in a different way? Are there ideas I agree with or disagree with in the work?
3. Was the work formally challenging? Did it use language in an interesting way?
Was it beautiful? Would I read it again?
-To help yourself with the writing, make an outline of your main points. Give your response a clear beginning, middle and end. You donâ€t have to answer every question asked above.
– This paper should be partly about yourself, but keep the work always â€œin sightâ€; keep returning to it and quoting it to underscore its relevance to your own experience. Support abstract ideas with textual evidence. In other words, think of the assignment as a conversation between you and the work of literature.
-Do NOT summarize the content of the work; i.e. assume that Professor knows and has read the work you are writing.
Below i will attach an example to show you what the professor is expecting to receive
