  2. Your paper must focus on the material in the course: this course looks at "Crime, Punishment, and Justice in World Literature." It is required is that you write about the fiction read in our course.
  3. You must remain in the time period of the ction’s setting. For example, if you are writing about The Odyssey, you want to stay focused on the setting of Ancient Greece. Do not connect to current events.
  4. You are welcome to use material that connects to your major--but don't let it pull o the course topic.
Make sure your paper remains focused on the fiction and your work doesn't delve too deeply into the external material. You do not want to have one or two sentences about the fiction and the rest of the information focused on a definition of a psychiatric profile or an artistic movement. You do want to be doing an in-depth analysis of the character or situation through close reading. Close reading usually involves minimal quoting, but the quotes are well selected and powerful. Research and Citations 1. You must quote from the primary text(s). 2. You must directly quote three (3) secondary sources: these must be Academic peer-reviewed Journals. The connections between the quotes and your argument should be clear and well developed. These three journal articles should be the same article you have selected for your Literature Review/Annotated Bibliography Assignment 3. You paragraphs should have 75% of your own analysis (your own words) and only 25% of cited material (this includes paraphrased portions.) Dictionaries, encyclopedias, many online formats, newspaper articles, and blogs are not Academic peer reviewed Journals and quoting from them will not fulfill this requirement. Paraphrasing will not fulfill this requirement.
