  • Essential Questions How do I apply may
    understanding of literary criticism to prove the
    genre of a given text?
  • Directions
  • This year, we studied several genres and their
    key characteristics. As we investigated the plot
    of various novels, poems and short stories, we
    remained mindful of the authors tone, purpose
    and genre. Attached is a short story by Robert
    Louis Stevenson. The text, The House of Eld is
    primarily denoted as a fable. However, many
    literary critics debate the accuracy of the
    storys genre classification. First, read the
    provided short story. Then, apply your
    understanding of genre to complete a five
    paragraph genre analysis of the The House of
    Eld that is specific, developed and focused on
    answering the provided prompt.

  • Choose a genre we investigated in class
    allegory, dystopian satire, epic or Gothicism
  • Explain why The House of Eld is characteristic
    of your chosen genre.

  • REMEMBER Provide a specific guiding thesis that
    connects at least three characteristics of your
    selected genre to The House of Eld. Note all
    genres could apply the accuracy of your
    response is based upon your ability to provide
    specific analysis with connective and accurate
    examples.. Be sure to use specific examples to
    support your answer (specific events and
    characters). Your response must be at least 5
    well-constructed paragraphs in length. You must
    have a topic sentence for each body paragraph
    that clearly outlines the main point and connects
    it to your thesis. Remember, spelling and
    mechanics do count - - - be sure to proofread!
  • Your essay will be graded on
  • Format (Persuasive Style, 5 developed
    paragraphs Intro / Body / Conclusion)
  • Mechanics (spelling, punctuation, etc)
  • Thesis (3-tier format specific thesis directly
    answers the prompt)
  • Transitions (topic sentences / connect all ideas
    to thesis / maintain focus)
  • Identification of Genre (define, outline its
    characteristics directly)
  • Supporting Evidence (list, summarize and explain
    text that is representative of your genre)
