1. Support an argument with textual evidence.

No text has one absolute meaning; language is interpretive and interpretable, and thus it is open to many meanings. That is not to say, however, that any text can mean any thing, or that the meaning of a text is merely an opinion. Meaning derived from a text must always be argued, and an argument must always have evidence.

This assignment requires that you break down and understand a text thoroughly, and then pose that understanding as an argument. To do this, you will choose one of three possible poems to analyze:

“Love’s Servile Lot” by Robert Southwell, OR

“The preface, expressing the passioned minde of the penitent sinner” by Anne Lock, OR

“Death” by George Herbert

Your analysis should focus on textual elements, including form and figurative language. Certainly some historical context can come into play, but this is not a biography or a summary, so your emphasis should be on how the words on the page make meaning. Do keep in mind all that you have learned this semester about Early Modern Christianity, both Catholic and Protestant. Your reading of the text should be consistently supported by evidence (evidence being the text itself), and should be well-argued.

No outside resources should be used for this assignment. No Works Cited page is required.

Outcomes:

1. Write an argumentative analytical essay based on Early Modern religious poetry.

1. Support an argument with textual evidence.
