1. Use “close reading and explication” skills to advance an argument on James Whitfields 2 poems "Love" and "The North Star".
Also create an annotated bibliography with 3 sources
For each of the three sources on your Works Cited page, write one paragraph (three to five sentences) that both describes and evaluates the content of the document. For each article, you should summarize the main argument and explain how it is or is not useful for people writing essays on your selected literary work. An annotation should indicate the thesis and focus of the article, as well as the author`s major arguments and conclusions.
Each annotation has most or all of the following characteristics:
--summarizes and evaluates the content
--identifies the main argument, points, and/or purpose of the work
--considers the worth, effectiveness, and usefulness of the work, both in terms of the topic discussed in the article and your own research project
--identifies a particular point of view, perspective, or bias from which the work was written
--possibly draws comparisons between sources in the reference list; annotations can establish connections to other aspects of the same argument or opposing views
