Honors English Personal AnthologyThis year we have been reading American authors exclusively. In order for you to expand your horizons and sample additional American authors, you will compile an anthology of some of your favorite short works.
In compiling your anthology, you will act as editor, searching for those works that best reflect your own personality, interests and literary taste. This exercise will give you the opportunity to explore.
If you start reading a short story and find that it bores you, put it away and find another. Rule number one is DON’T BE BORED!
After you have selected and compiled your favorite works, you will write a preface (600 words) in which you draw conclusions about your choices and the identification of a theme that relates to your collection. Address how you made your choices- what drew you to a particular artist, poet or article. The preface will also include why you chose the literary criticism pieces that you write about.
In summary- Actual written work that you create will consist of:
Table of contents
2 pages (600 word) preface (please address the scene from the novel or play in your preface)
1.5 page (500 word) response to Literary Criticism to an American work
Works Cited Pages
Total pages YOU compose 4
