What’s an Analysis?
An analysis examines literary texts closely to
understand their messages, interpret their meanings, and appreciate their
writers’ techniques. You might read Macbeth and notice that Shakespeare’s
play contains a pattern of images of blood. You go below the surface of
the work to deepen your understanding of how it works and what it means.
You are asked to explore the poems “Theme for English B” by Langston
Hughes and “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost and interpret what
messages and themes the author/s are trying to convey. An analysis is comprised of many integrated parts: 1. an introduction to the article and
author 2. an introduction to and brief background
on the general topic,
3. a
brief summary properly placed in the essay
4. a discussion of the criteria chosen for
evaluation
5. a discussion of the criteria using specific
examples/information from the text;
this discussion should be
the largest section of your essay by far!! 6. brief instances of
personal response
7. a conclusion. All
of these items should relate to your overall evaluation/thesis of the text.
Your audience is college-educated adults, but instead
of reading the original text for themselves, they are relying on your essay
for their information.
The Assignment:
For this assignment, you are asked to
analyze the Poems by Frost and Hughes.
Here are the general parts/elements of
an analysis that should be apparent in your essay and
on which you will be evaluated:
Introduction Include background information—Author, Date of publication Statement of your
overall analysis in the form of a clear and convincing thesis that
controls the essay
Properly/effectively placed summarization
(Because your target audience has
limited background information on your topic, summary will be a natural
component of your essay but should be only about 20% of the essay’s total
length. The summarization should be briefly mentioned in the introduction
and then as a separate body paragraph.).
Clearly listed and explained criteria for analysis
Body paragraphs that are focused by student-driven
criteria, engage source material, and thoroughly evaluate the text’s
effectiveness.* Statements that connect your points of analysis to
your thesis
Logical organization
Effective transitions

ROBERT FROST The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in
a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I
stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had
worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no
step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how
way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling
this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood,
and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference
