USE THIS LIST FOR YOUR NARRATIVE TERMS WRITE-UP. PRESENT THE NARRATIVE TERMS YOU ARE ASSIGNED TO WRITE ABOUT IN THE ORDER IN WHICH THEY ARE LISTED. FOR TERMS WITH
MULTIPLE COMPONENTS, BE SURE TO INCLUDE DEFINITIONS, EXAMPLES, AND ANALYSIS OF EACH COMPONENT OR ‘SUB-TYPE’ TO SHOW YOUR FULL KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE
FINAL Narrative Terms Assignment
This is the final list and explanation of your narrative terms assignment.
For each term listed below provide:
a) a definition or explanation of the term in your own words. You should use Bedford to help you understand the complexity of this term, and you may directly quote
some of Bedford should it be necessary (do so using MLA format, though, or else you will be plagiarizing). If a term has multiple sub-components, you should be sure to
mention those specifically even if they are not listed below.
b) the reason why we utilize or consider the term when we perform literary studies. In other words: why this term is important and relevant to a thorough analysis of a
text, how it reveals aspects of the texts to us or how it operates in a text to reveal something else of import to one studying the text
c) an example of the term from one of our readings this term
d) the aspect of that text (from your example) that is then revealed or more fully analyzed and understood by one’s recognition of and understanding of the term…
As you write each entry, be sure to number the entry, state the term, and then separate the four parts of each entry into lettered parts. Each part only need to be a
sentence or two. Thus, “Allusion” would be formatted as follows:
a) A literary allusion is …
b) When an author uses literary allusions it creates…. This is important because…
c) We see a literary allusion in XX when [provide specific passages/quotes here]…
d) The use of this allusion creates … in the text and shows us that ….
p.s. I only wrote tiny bits as an example. You should write as much as you need to in order to get the full meaning of the term across to your reader clearly. Think of
yourself as the teacher for this assignment—you are explicating the term and instructing a class of literary scholars on how it can be used and its particular
relevance to one of our reading selections.
