Homework 4
  • Summary and explanation of source
    • Find your critical source using the library or the library databases

    • Write around 100 words explaining how it will fit with your argument
  • Include the citation for the source
tips for reading critical articles
Tips for Reading Critical Articles
  • Skim it first
  • Identify the thesis—it may be obscured or later than you expect
  • Look for keywords that show the argument is moving forward—these are often the transitional phrases we are familiar with (Also, furthermore, for example, etc.)
  • Find the textual support and follow the argument surrounding it
  • Don’t get bogged down by the details
james twists of the governess
“James: Twists of the Governess”
  • Take a few minutes to identify:
    • Thesis
    • Support for thesis
    • Textual evidence (Keep in mind that The Turn of the Screw is not the only text Sussman is using)
hysteria
Hysteria
  • Hysteria
    • Medical condition diagnosed as early as 200 BC
    • Considered exclusively female until 19th century
      • Early causes were demonic possession
      • Related to blood flow, often (we can’t fuel our brain and our uterus at the same time)
      • Treated by herbal remedies, absolute bed rest (think “The Yellow Wallpaper”), or stimulation (later)
    • Men began experiencing it after the development of the train—also, Freud identified it as not purely female

integrating sources
Integrating sources
  • YOUR argument should be at the forefront
  • Topic sentences should be focused on the primary text (the short story/novel you are discussing)
  • Vary quotes, paraphrases, and summaries—most essays/articles use all three
  • Remember to cite the sources
  • Avoid floating quotes—tell us why you are quoting what you quote/surround the quote in your language
