Now that you have completed Mary Shelleys Frankenstein, you are in a good position to
consider what critics have written about the novel. You will need a total of ((TWO critiques))
(also known as critical analysis essays) for this assignment.
—————————————————————————————-
First, use the selection of links below to locate a critical analysis essay written about the
1818 version of Mary Shelleys novel. You may focus most of your attention on this first
critique.——————————————————————————
CHOOSE FROM AMONG THESE SOURCES:
ipl2 Literary Criticism collection: If you use this site, you must choose from the first
seven critiques listed as the final two are not scholarly:
( http://www.ipl.org/div/litcrit/bin/litcrit.out.pl?tifra-63
Professor Sherry Ginns critique:1 http://www.clas.ufl.edu/ipsa/2003/ginn.html
Professor Naomi Hetheringtons
critique: http://knarf.english.upenn.edu/Articles/hether.html ———————————————————————
Your evaluation may go more smoothly if you approach the guiding questions in this order:
1. Evaluate the critic/author:
Who wrote the criticism you read? What credentials does the author have (education,
professional career, other publications, etc.)? (If you are using a credible author, you should
be able to find her/his credentials fairly easily)
2. Find the thesis of the article:
What is the thesis of the critical article youve chosen? What point does the author want to
make about Frankenstein?
3. Evaluate the thesis: Do you agree with this thesis? Why or why not? Weve covered many ideas in the study
guides. Can you find points within the guides that support your agreement or disagreement
with the critical writer(s)? Look for new supporting information rather than revisiting the
same ones the critics have chosen.
4. Evaluate the support:
Whether you agree or disagree with the thesis, does the critic provide sufficient research
from the text and outside references to make a strong case? What does the article have for
support from the text or outside sources? In your opinion, what makes these references
valid? Do you feel the author uses this support properly?
Next, locate a second critique about the novel, and discuss how this second critique agrees
and/or disagrees with the first one. For instance, if the first critic argues that Shelleys writing
is juvenile, does the second critic agree with this assessment? If the first critic believes the
novel is autobiographical, does the second critic concur? These are just a few examples of
how you can include this second critique in order to have a polished, comprehensive
Evaluation Essay of your own. ———————————————————————————————–
In addition to addressing each of the evaluative components above, develop your essay so it
has a clear introduction, body, and conclusion. You must include an evaluative thesis
statement both the introduction and the conclusion. Ensure that each of your claims are
supported with valid evidence from the literary criticism you have chosen, the
novel, Frankenstein, and/or the study guides———————————————————————————————————————
Using proper MLA2
style, insert parenthetical citations for all borrowed information in
addition to a Works Cited page for Frankenstein and your chosen literary critiques; you are
not required to cite the study guides if you use them.—————————————————————————————————————–
Hint: For a thesis statement, try answering a question like: How and how well does this piece
of criticism state and support its argument regarding Frankenstein?
You might use these as possible guidelines in crafting your thesis statement:
(Critic, aka author of the critique) uses (add critic title) to (add an adjective to describe the
effectiveness of the argument such as adequately or inadequately) argue that (add critics thesis)
by (explain why and/or include your support).
OR
(Critic)s (add critique title) (add an adjective to describe the effectiveness of the argument such as
adequately or inadequately) argue that (add critics thesis) because (explain why and/or include
your support).
