  6. What is our focus this week? • ELACC8RL1: Cite the textual evidence that most strongly supports an analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text • ELACC8W4: Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience. • ELACC8W9: Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.

  7. What is textual evidence? Pulling actual evidence from the text to help prove your point or reason. Writing a Literary Analysis • The paper is based on a clear thesis, and essay convincingly proves thesis. • Organization is clear. The following five paragraphs are evident: introduction, 3 body paragraphs (at least!), and conclusion. • Approximately 6 parenthetical citations (about 2 per body paragraph) are included correctly: • Example: Mama is described as, “a large big-boned woman with rough, man-working hands” (57). • Voice is strong, sentence structure is varied and smooth, and word choice is precise and appropriate for audience. • Conventions are error-free.

  18. Southern Gothic Literature Southern gothic writers leverage the details of the American South—the lonely plantations, aging Southern belles, dusty downtowns, dilapidated slave quarters, Spanish moss and Southern charm—to bring life to their slice of history.

  19. Characteristics of Southern Gothic Lit • One of the defining features of southern gothic is the cast of off-kilter characters, many of whom are "not right in the head." • The genre is riddled with many broken bodies, and even more broken souls. When southern gothic authors examine the human condition, they see the potential to do harm. • Moralityis in question for many characters. • A major theme for southern gothic writers hinges on innocence, and the innocent's place in the world—where they are often asked to act as redeemer. • But this is still a genre of love and loss. In the end, purity of heart rarely overpowers desperation.

  20. Religious Symbolism “A Good Man is Hard to Find” is full of religious symbolism. O’Connor was a devout Catholic and portrayed her thoughts of religion into her stories.
