A Rose for Emily (1930)by William Faulkner

The final exam will require you to compose a literary argument essay on cue, focusing on analyzing a literary text for the terms that we have reviewed and the basic elements of composition, such as creating well developed paragraphs, creating a specific thesis statement, transitioning from topic to topic, using clear and specific topic sentences, incorporating evidence, etc.

The final exam will consist of a written response to a specific prompt. I will offer three different prompts, and you will choose one of those prompts. To prepare for the exam, review the following readings; essays from this condensed reading list will show up on the exam.

  • Kate Chopin’s “A Story of an Hour” (on pp. 485-87 in Literary Argument PDF posted in this week’s folder)
  • Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man Is Hard to Find” (pp. A-62 to A-79 in They Say/I Say textbook)
  • William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily” (link posted in this week’s folder)

The exam will require that you analyze readings with a specific focus in mind, using textual evidence to support your claims (with correct in-text citations and works cited entries at the end of the essay). Essentially, you’ll show me that you can write a liteary argument essay on cue within a particular time frame (2.5 hours).

  • When evaluating your final exams, I will use the same grading system used for your previous essays. However, I will not overload the exams with markings and numerous comments.
