Analyze any short story from the calendar that you have not analyzed so far applying Marxist, cultural, feminist, historical, psychoanalytical on character,

Furthermore, i am looking for you to use the LITERARY TERMS (Links to an external site.) for this class, specifically applying AT LEAST one critical
perspective in your analysis. I do not need a descriiption of the poem or play, or a plot synopsis of a play or story. Use the primary source, directly quoted, to
support that analysis. You must also find a secondary source to quote from as well in the body of your essay.
Make sure that your essay is no less than three paragraphs and make sure that the middle body paragraph, which is where you will give me any directly
quoted text and any real analysis, is at least 10 sentences long. The first paragraph and the last paragraph are an introductory paragraph and conclusion
paragraph respectively, and I want them short with no specific detail other than the topic under discussion and some kind background statement. For more
information on what introduction, conclusion and a body paragraphs look like in my class, go over to “organization and outlines” under the “paper format and
test instruction” page on englit.org,as this information will also affect your tests and your papers.
