Here follows an excerpt from a brief analysis of "Design" based on the close reading above. Observations So far in our reading of "Design," our questions revolve around disruption: Having observed the scene and detailed its elements in all their unpleasantness, the speaker turns to questions rather than answers.
Using another question as a disguise, the speaker offers a hypothesis: The speaker obviously wants somebody to come home, and we may infer that that someone is an absent sweetheart, his wife or lover.
What is the effect of picking a word like "tome" instead of "book". I buy a little change purse with its curled and fitted snap. A paragraph addressing form that suggests a transition to the next section of the paper.
A paragraph about the penultimate line My mother bought this for me. The speaker then poses a series of questions, asking why this heal-all is white instead of blue and how the spider and moth found this particular flower.
By commenting on the different elements of close reading we have discussed, it takes the results of our close reading to offer one particular way into the text. Literary analysis involves examining these components, which allows us to find in small parts of the text clues to help us understand the whole.
While you are going through this process, it is best for you to assume that every word is important—again, you can decide whether something is really important later.
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old time is still a-flying, And this same flower that smiles today Tomorrow will be dying. Knowing how to organize these papers can be tricky, in part because there is no single right answer—only more and less effective answers. We suggest you write your paper however is easiest for you then move things around during revision if you need to.
I buy and then I buy and then, another day, I buy something else. In Paris she had a dog, Bijou, and when they fled Paris in they left the dog behind. Behind the speaker and the disturbing scene, we have Frost and his defiance of our expectations for a Petrarchan sonnet.
If so, do these irregularities mean something. I hinge a satin handbag in the crease of my arm. The houses are their legacy, but they themselves have passed on.
I found a dimpled spider, fat and white The poem starts with something unpleasant: I go to the thrift store to feel for bobby pins caught in the pocket seam of a camel hair coat.
Depending on the type of paper you have been assigned, your ideas may need to be organized in service of a thesis to which everything should link back. One way to approach a text may be to start with the beginning of the novel, story, play, or poem, and work your way toward its end.
And sometimes, unexpectedly, a faux crocodile handle makes me weep. Breathy clearing of throat, a smooth arm, heels on pavement, she lingers, sound tattoos.
Is it easier to follow your points when you write about each part of the text in detail before moving on. Furthering the speaker's simple "how did this happen," we might ask, is the scene in this poem a manufactured situation?.
Getting Close - Because my mother loved pocketbooks. Victoria Redel was born in New York City on April 9,a first-generation American of Belgian, Egyptian, Polish, Romanian, and Russian descent. Close reading is deep analysis of how a literary text works; it is both a reading process and something you include in a literary analysis paper, though in a refined form.
Fiction writers and poets build texts out of many central components, including subject, form, and specific word choices. My poem is not a happy one, it is sad and it is real, and at some point in life many will come face to face with some type of suffering, but the most heart breaking suffering is that of someone we love, and we can be so close yet feel so helpless/5(16).
