Paper details:

Drama Essay Instructions: Write a well-developed essay, using MLA format, analyzing the topic listed. Your essay should be 500-550 words in length. Use this rubric to assist in understanding how this work will be graded. Select one of the plays from the textbook that you have not already read. Write an analysis of the play using 3 essential elements of the play as we have discussed in class (see list below). Some elements that you might consider: plot, structure, setting, tone, language, symbol, theme, character. Not everyone will choose to discuss the same elements as it varies depending on which story you choose. Do not use any outside sources other than the play in our textbook. You are choosing one play and analyzing it using 3 of the elements listed above. Whichever element you select, you are always connecting that element to meaning. Be aware that an essay about plot is NOT a plot summary. Your plot summary, if you must have one, should be no longer than one short paragraph (5-6 sentences). Be sure to use MLA documentation in the form of parenthetical citations and a works cited page (work from an anthology). Only source that can be used is: The Norton Introduction to Literature, 11th edition
