Critical Synthesis Paper (30% or 90pts) For your second paper, please choose 2 or 3 texts from the latter part of the semester—anything after and including Washington Irving—and make an argument addressing how the central idea you discussed in Paper 1 is affirmed, contradicted, or complicated by your chosen texts. While the more recent texts should be your primary focus, you are encouraged to draw some evidence from your text for Paper 1 as well. You may also use up to 3 external (or secondary) sources to support your argument or enhance your discussion, though I would advise you to rely on your literary texts and on your own analysis as much as possible. This paper should have a clear, argumentative thesis, should come to between 5 and 7 double-spaced pages, should be typed in 12-pt. Times New Roman font with 1-inch margins, and should be submitted via Canvas on Monday.
