For your paper you are required to do some outside or background research: Wikipedia, answers.com, Cliff Notes, Sparknotes, Shmoop, enotes, gradesaver, or other similar internet sources DO NOT qualify. You may, however, search for secondary material either by going to a library, or by navigating through Jastor or Project Muse in the Queens College online Library Databases. You may also consult websites that end with “.edu.” If you need to define a term, please use: Dictionaries of Literary Terms, or Encyclopedias of Literary Themes and Motifs, Dictionaries of Symbolism, and other reputable dictionaries or encyclopedias.
Quotations are very important in a paper: including and discussing specific quotations from the primary text(s) helps you support your views. Also, make sure to refer to specific characters in the tales/poem of your discussion. Finally, please remember this is a Comparative Literature course; that means you should attempt to compare two to three characters, either of the same text, or from different texts discussed in this course. papers should be double space only, typed with Times New Roman font, 12 point
