analysis of The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe

Paper instructions:

The Final Research Paper is a 10-page analysis of The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe plus a works cited page(s).

? Using our four academic databases (EBSCO, JSTOR, MLA Bibliography, and LION), locate three to five (or more) ACADEMIC JOURNAL ARTICLES that will aid you with

your argument(s) about the primary text.
? Please read and study the “Sample Paper” and other instructional PowerPoint presentations.
? Consult with our online library experts and ask for assistance with research questions; direct your questions about the assignment itself to me. (The library has

representatives online to chat during regular business hours – see the library website for aid in connecting).

Basic Requirements:
? An introduction paragraph.
? A thesis paragraph; consider following the 3-part model presented in the
“Thesis Powerpoint” and our sample final paper.
? Body paragraphs/discussions (multiple paragraphs) that concentrate on one
topic of analysis at a time.
? A conclusion that brings the paper to a satisfactory close.
? Concentration on the primary source as the analytical focus, not the author’s
life or thoughts on his/her own work.
? A “Works Cited” or “Works Consulted” page(s), in MLA style, listing at least
three peer-reviewed journal articles from scholarly journals that have been used throughout your paper.
Writing a Strong Research Paper:
? Evidence is used throughout in the form of quotes and paraphrases drawn from your primary source and at least three peer-reviewed journal articles drawn from the

databases listed above.
? MLA style is applied to citations of titles, author names, parenthetical quotations, block quotes and the works cited entries (refer to lecture notes, the Norton

and the BCCC Handbook).
? The final draft is edited and proofread for logical structure, grammar, spelling, proper indentation and other basics of college-level writing.
The Intellectual Goals of the Final Paper are to:
? Present an argument about the primary source and support that argument through use of a variety of academic secondary sources in the form of peer-reviewed

journal articles and critical books.
? Provide meaningful, nuanced support of the thesis through body paragraphs/discussions that present and discuss evidence and links these discussions to the

paper’s central argument(s).
? Engage readers through presentation of interesting, well-selected evidences and the creative interpretation of this support material.
? Avoid plot summary: assume that your readers are familiar with the story and don’t need a re- telling of the plot: concentrate on contextualizing rather than

? Demonstrate to your audience an in-depth knowledge of both the primary and secondary sources through informed and confident discussion of your resources.
? Cultivate your voice as an authority on the primary source through using scholarly work to support your own claims. Use the first-person “I,” consult They Say/ I

Say and lecture notes on how to create an academic voice with “I.”
