This essay is an Explication of Poetry. It needs to be an in depth analysis of the poem “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight”
You should note that an explication, much like a standard argument paper, needs a specific thesis with a limited focus. In poetry explication, you may choose to discuss the tone, the narrative or action, rhetorical devices, characterization, structure, etc.
The length of this paper should be (1.5 to 2) pages, and must include a Works Cited page and in-text citation. You may center your paper on the discussion of one or more of the elements of poetry (theme, cultural, figures of speech, rhyme and meter, etc.) or use a biographical interpretation of the poem, or any other form of analysis as discussed in the PowerPoint presentation of Types of Critical Analyses in the primary Lessons tab.
Further instructions for specifics can be found in the file attachments.
