English 104 Research Paper – Topic: The Tell-Tale Heart ? Edgar Allen Poe
A research paper is one of the requirements for successful completion of this course. Think of
this paper as an expanded version of the other essays you have written this term. In addition to
being longer, this paper also requires you to use as evidence not only facts from the literary text
but also information gathered from other sources. Because you are writing a paper on a literary
topic, your sources will be reviews, literary criticism, and /or essays written by expert authors.
As always, it is important that you write from credible, reliable, and intellectually appropriate
sources. Do not use web searches. Use the Leatherby Library databases. If you run into research
issues, the Brandman University Coordinator of Library Services will be happy to help.
Please use the following as guideline for the work.
1. The paper will be at least 1,500-2,000 words.
2. You will use at least five secondary sources in addition to the literary text or texts you
are analyzing. For our purposes, primary sources include the actual story, poem, or play
under discussion while the secondary sources are articles written about those texts.
3. All sources must be scholarly, not popular. They must be correctly documented in
MLA style. Refer to your Hacker guide or the Purdue Online Writing Lab
(http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/) for reference to this.
4. Your paper will include both in-text (or parenthetical) citations and a Works Cited
page. The Works Cited will not be included in your word count. All works you consult,
including the bibliographical information for the story, poem, or play must be included

Because you have already had an opportunity to write about the fiction and poetry texts
we have discussed this term, the literary analysis will focus on drama. Select one of the
plays we have discussed in class, and choose a specific theme upon which to focus the
thesis of the essay.
