Additional Requirements for the Critical Analysis Essay

  • MLA format requires that your essay include a full-heading and a title, and that it be double-spaced;
  • you must begin with a complete introduction, which includes your thesis statement and the main points to be developed in your Critical Analysis;
  • the primary purpose of your introduction is to usher the reader into your essay and to lay a foundation for the development of your thesis;
  • each body paragraph must include a topic sentence, which more specifically details one of the main points from your thesis;
  • each main point must be supported by a secondary source, which directly relates to the development of your thesis, and MLA in-text citation must be included for all borrowed material used in your essay;
  • all supporting sources for your essay must be acquired through the HCC library, and/or the library databases;
  • you are expected to use the primary source (work you are analyzing), and to cite it in your essay; however, the primary source does not count as one of your secondary sources (you will need three secondary sources in addition to the primary source);
  • you may use a source twice, but you may only count it once toward your three source requirement;
  • any additional works by the writer you are covering are primary sources; unless the writer has also published literary criticism;
  • secondary sources of information are created by someone who did not participate in the event and/or does not have first-hand experience with the object of your research (literary critics); for our purposes secondary sources are generally scholarly articles and books;
  • all sources must be introduced and all borrowed material (quotes and paraphrases) must be identified as borrowed, with quotes placed within quotation marks;
  • all material included in supporting paragraphs must relate to the development of the topic sentence, which must relate directly to the thesis; this demonstrates a “sustained pattern of development”;
  • please develop your points well, and use transitions when moving from one point to the next;
  • your conclusion should tell the reader what you have done, and how you have gone about the process of developing your thesis;
  • the entire essay should be qritten from a third-person POV, and should contribute to academic scholarship and research through objective, well-supported analysis, using both the primary source and a minimum of three secondary sources.
