Complete the reading of your novel.
Write an essay of 750-1000 words on the use of a single literary device used within one of the dramas you read for this lesson. Be sure to:
Include an outline.
Use MLA format.
Include a Works Cited page.
Create the essay with the understanding that this is not a book report. Don’t summarize the play, as that is only appropriate for a sentence or two in the introduction. Explain how a literary device was used in the drama by offering examples of the device and analyzing their importance in the play.
Cite examples from the story in support of your argument using proper MLA format (quotations for direct citations, as well as parenthetical references for both these and paraphrases).
