1 Required Readings: Marlowe s The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus Joyce s A Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man Wilde s The Picture of Dorian Gray Hepzibah Roskelly s What Do Students Need To Know About Rhetoric Suggested Reading: Thomas C. Foster s How To Read Literature Like a Professor Please note: While it is acceptable for you to discuss the readings, your assignments must be original work. There will be in-class quizzes on the readings and on the terms during the first weeks back to school. Ms. Daken is available for help over the summer via at Assignment #1: Define and understand the following terms: Allegory, Alliteration, Allusion, Assonance, Consonance, Dramatic Irony, Epic, Flashback, Foreshadow, Frame Story, Gothic Romance, Hyperbole, Iambic Pentameter, Metaphor, Motif, Narrative, Onomatopoeia, Personification, Point of View, Realism, Regionalism, Romanticism, Simile, Situational Irony, Soliloquy, Symbol, Theme, Tone, Tragedy, Transcendentalism, and Verbal Irony. Assignment #2: A Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man was specifically chosen for this class because of the way that Joyce utilizes language. The main character, Stephen, goes through five stages of his development towards being a young man: child, teenager, sinner (one who is neglecting laws or religious codes), saint (one obsessed with goodness and religion ), and intellect. Interestingly enough, Joyce attempts to match his syntax (sentence structure), use of literary devices, and his language to each stage of development. It is your task to find and explain ten total examples of Joyce s correlation between stage of development and language 1. Example: 1. Allusions Intellect. Joyce utilizes many allusions in the intellect stage. One example is [insert allusion] which alludes to [insert title of primary source]. The use of this allusion shows that Stephen is well-read, [insert more analysis] Hint: If it is in italics, it is possibly a quote from another piece of literature or Latin. Usually a little internet research will give you insight. Assignment #3: Using your three fictional readings and at least one additional previously read novel, please write a multiple-paragraph essay in which you prove the following idea: Although it may be impacted by external factors, fate is typically a self elected thing. Be certain to write an idea-driven essay and not a text driven essay. You should use your textual references to support your ideas. Please type your responses in MLA format. See attached fever chart assignment. Assignment #4: 1 Language refers to how Joyce wrote, not what Joyce wrote.

2 Drafts may be ed up to August 20 for feedback. All summer reading assignments are due Wednesday September 7. Dr. Faustus Fever Chart It is your to create a poster tracking Dr. Faustus from Marlowe s play. The basic idea of a fever chart is to track the chosen character s for his own actions through the course of the text, using the assigned scale as the Y-Axis and direct (and properly cited) quotes from the text as the X-Axis. A careful look at the fever chart allows one to draw conclusions about the character. For example, if you were to track Romeo s (from Shakespeare s Romeo and Juliet) affections, you would locate quotes that show when he was merely infatuated and others that could represent his movements towards true love. For example, the quote The all-seeing sun / Ne er saw her match since first the world begun ( ) would be ranked at 1 infatuation. When Romeo says this, he is talking about Rosaline. As he does not know much about this girl and is simply offering a hyperbole about her instead of an actual reason to love her, it is clear that he is only infatuated. Likewise, when he explains For nothing can be ill if she be well (5.1.16), it would be ranked at 5 true love because it demonstrates that his happiness comes from Juliet s welfare. Your goal is to determine the changes in character and what happens to the character as these changes occur. You will choose at least 8-10 quotes for the assigned topic and will rate them on the following five point scale: 5 accepting total, 4 accepting some, 3 neutral, 2 avoiding some, 1 avoiding all. You must include the proper citations for each line. 2 They can be lines from the character, what others have said about the character, or from the stage directions. These lines must reflect the text as a whole and should come from a variety of scenes. 5 Accepting total 4 Accepting some 3 Neutral 2 Avoiding some 1 Avoiding all Progression of text by acts, scenes, or lines 2 According to Diana Hacker, For verse plays, MLA recommends giving act, scene, and line numbers that can be located in any edition of the work. Use arabic numerals, and separate the numbers with periods. In Shakespeare's King Lear, Gloucester, blinded for suspected treason, learns a profound lesson from his tragic experience: "A man may see how this world goes / with no eyes" ( ).

3 In addition to your poster, you must also hand in a document with each properly cited quote and an explanation of at least 2 sentences explaining why that quote was placed where it was on the chart. Finally, once you have charted Faustus s relationship with, it is time for you to make your final decision. Is Faustus responsible for himself and his own fate or does he avoid this? Utilizing the following format for a basic paragraph (see page 3), as well as specific and cited quotes from your fever chart, please write a one-paragraph conclusion for your fever chart. Included in this packet is the grading rubric, as well as samples. Basic Paragraph Format Sentence Purpose Length 1 Statement of Purpose Can be accomplished by thesis Answers the question what am I trying to prove? 2-4 Development 1 Examples and Summaries: Must be specific and concrete with either: o Vivid details o Direct quotes o Summaries of sources Source material must include citations. 2-3 Analysis 1 Explains the development Connects the development to the purpose 2-4 Development 2 Examples and Summaries: Must be specific and concrete with either: o Vivid details o Direct quotes o Summaries of sources Source material must include citations. 2-3 Analysis 2 Explains the development Connects the development to the purpose 1-2 Final Paragraph Analysis Connects multiple developments Connects the purpose to the larger essay purpose
