Roberts Ch. 12

| | Comments (0)

I do not think that Roberts or the sample essay introduce a new way of thinking, but Chapter 12 does discuss something that we haven't utilized or gone over in class thus far... rather than simply writing about our reactions to a literary work, Chapter 12 discusses how to use literary works to support your argument when writing about a particular issue or problem.

While I have never actually used a work of literature to support an argument I was making (like in a formal research paper), the basic concepts of utilizing sources such as peer-reviewed articles and non-fictional accounts are basically the same. It's good that this chapter gets us thinking about this concept though as we begin to write more in-depth papers for this course.
