2) Effective use of (brief) quoted passages that supply exactly the evidence you need to support your point
3)Above all, a strong thesis that flows through the entire essay
No minimum number of sources, however, please cite quotes appropriately from the play and cite sources (:
Also, I have provided a screenshot to hopefully help guide you in this essay. Thank you!!

Read through the pages below in this unit titled “Option 1” “Option 2” and “Option 3”, then come back here and submit a paper abstract. Again, make sure you read through those pages fully before completing this assignment.
In one paragraph, explain to me which theory you would like to choose for your final paper. Within the directions of each page (Option 1, 2, and 3) it provides research links and asks you to create an inquiry question, or in other words a prompt, that will guide your paper. You may need to look through some of those links before creating your inquiry question. Here, write out a question that you would like to answer with your final paper. This question will either relate to Post Colonial Theory, Feminist Theory, or Psychoanalytic Theory. Also, explain how you intend to answer the question with your thesis, and the content you imagine your paper to contain. You may change your mind after submitting your abstract to me, and that is fine, but this will help me understand your general plan.
Your paragraph for this assignment can be informal, just make sure it includes all of the components listed above. Pretend this is a conversation we are having about your work. It’s a proposal to give me an idea of what you intend to do for your final paper, but an abstract is flexible and the final paper may differ.
Final Paper Option 1: Post Colonial Theory Analysis
“The issue of race in Othello has only become important in modern timers. It has no real relevance in its original context.”
– Some critics believe we only focus on the issue of race because of our society’s political correctness. They argue that Shakespeare never intended racism to be one of the main issues.
– Other critics have claimed the text supports a reading that examines the issue of race and it’s crucial to the play as a whole.

Final Paper Option 2: Feminist or Gender Theory Analysis
To conduct an analysis of Othello through the perspective of Gender Theory, there are a few approaches you chould take:
– Gender Theory: critics believe that Iago appealed to Iago’s masculinity, and the fear of being a cuckold, to manipulate Othello into an intense rage.
– Feminist Theory: critics have claimed the text supports a reading that examines Emilia as a feminist prototype, both progressive and demonstrating enlightened womanhood, and Desdemona as an example of the dangers of gender roles and the patriarchy.

I N T R U C T I O N S :
1. Conduct some research regarding this topic. You can use the links provided below. If you choose to use outside research, make sure that it is from a credible organization (note most of the links below are from universities). After reviewing some of the sources below, choose 1-3 sources you intend to cite in your essay (you can also find your own sources using Google Scholar or the “Library Resources” folder on the homepage of this course, I have just provided these resources for you to save you time).
2. Create an inquiry question that you can explore for this project. This question will serve as the prompt for your essay. The question should be open-ended enough that it allows you to develop an interesting response to it, while specific enough that it can be answered in a 4-7 page literary analysis (full pages, not including your works cited page). Use your inquiry question as the title of your paper.
3. Write an introductory paragraph for your literary analysis. Introductions typically follow this structure:
picture below
4. Using evidence from the research sources in Step 1, draft the first two paragraphs of your essay. A suggested layout for these paragraphs is:
– Paragraph 1: Background information on Elizabethan England and mental disorders (clinical and more informal like manipulation, personality quirks, etc); compare these to your knowledge or evidence of mental health today
– Paragraph 2: Use evidence from your research to clearly establish your argument regarding the role of mental states in the play
(Of course, the way you structure your essay will depend on what you intend to argue. This structure may or may not fit your ideas. Feel free to deviate from these guidelines, but if you do so, make sure your essay has a clear and logical structure.)
5. Select evidence from the text to incorporate into your essay. Be sure to cite your evidence properly using MLA in-text citations.
6. Draft your analysis paragraphs: separate your paragraphs by the ideas presented within them, use specific text evidence from Othello to support your analysis. Ensure that you cite your evidence using MLA format. The evidence you choose is important, but your elaboration/analysis of the evidence is what is most integral to this essay so be sure to fully explain and connect your ideas.
7. Draft your final paragraph: In 3-5 sentences, provide a clear and concise ending to your essay.
8. If you have not yet, read the rubric that will be used to grade your paper. Proofread and edit your paper in accordance with the rubric.
A final note, make sure you quote REAL Shakespeare, not translated Shakespeare. Essays without real quotations cannot be graded. This has been reiterated throughout our entire time with Othello.

Working With The Assigned Signet Edition Of Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus, And [Pick One Only] Either The Sewell, Hunter, Or The Dunn Article In The Back Of The Book, Explore The Following In Essay Form:
What Is The Critic’s Main Point In Their Article? Discuss How They Go About Supporting That Point With Specifics From The Text. Also, Bring In Your Response To The Play And Evidence From The Text That Either Supports The Critic’s Major Observations Or Argues Against It.
** Tip: Avoid Organizing Your Paper According To The Order In The Previous Paragraphs. Be Inventive And Logical In Your Presentation. It Is A Good Idea To Have Your Paper’s Sections “Speak To Each Other” In A Few Paragraph.
**Note: On The Works Cited Sheet Cite Marlowe As The Play’s Author And Add A Citation Showing The Critic As Author And The Name Of The Article, And Format That According To Mla Guidelines. Including Where The Information About Where The Article Was First Published. That Information Appears On The Bottom Of The First Page Of Each Article.
