In Week Five you will submit a Final Paper. This week, you will develop an annotated bibliography as another step toward completing the Final Paper.
Choose five scholarly sources that will be used in support of your thesis, and create an annotated bibliography in APA format.At least three out of the five sources must come from the Library, preferably from JSTOR. Include at least one direct quote from each source that you plan to incorporate into your Final Paper. Then write a three sentence descriptionon how the source will be used to support your tentative thesis.
In completing this research, be sure to revise your thesis statement from the Week One Assignment and include this updated thesis statement in your annotated bibliography template. Be sure to include the original thesis from your Week One Assignment.
Use the template below to structure your work. It is not necessary to include your primary source (the literature you will be analyzing). Use the Library link in the left navigation of the online classroom to access JSTOR, where you can find excellent literary resources. I have begun work on this and have filled in some of the details. I need help please and fresh ideas I am stuck! Thanks!
Topic: How does Edgar Allen Poe use imagery to further the plot in The Fall of the House of Usher or The Cask of Amontillado? Be sure to consider exposition, complication (rising action), falling action (denouement), and resolution (hamartia).
Original Thesis (From Week 1 Assignment): Whereas the imagery in the “Fall of the House of Usher” can depict many possible meanings to the reader, the imagery of horror, madness, and death is what drives the plot in the setting and characters it depicts. In Edgar Allan Poe’s work does indeed help move the plot, given that Edgar Allan Poe’s use of imagery from the exposition, complication, falling action, and resolution is a most important in the setting to the plots in his work
