The Research Essay A main focus of this course is the Research Essay. The Research Essay should focus on one or more poems, short stories, plays, or other literary works.

The Research Essay must meet three important criteria: 1) the essay must be argumentative, centered on the work(s) you have chosen; 2) the essay must be overwhelmingly original: that is, it mainly reflects your ideas, analysis, thoughts, feelings, or understanding of the literary work(s) being written about; 3) the essay must involve research to back up or inform your ideas, analysis, etc., properly cited; and should incorporate research from a minimum of five sources, three of which should be come from the BCC library’s databases.
