It look a lot, but it isn’t, I like to post all the details and reading material needed, to make your work easier. For this week’s written assignment, you’ll complete an annotated bibliography. This
might be a new term for some of you, so I’ll explain. A bibliography is a list of reference
works used in a research paper. An annotation is a note about each work. Therefore your
annotated bibliography for this course will contain the list of works you intend to use for
your literary analysis paper and a note about each.
This might sound simple, and it is! However, there are still certain expectations placed
upon you for this assignment. First of all, you need to understand the differences
between a primary and a secondary source. For your literary analysis paper, your
primary source is the story, poem, or drama that you’ll write about. Secondary sources
are the articles you find where another scholar writes about the primary text. In the
sample essay, the primary source is Kafka’s The Metamorphosis and the secondary
sources are the two articles that are used in the paper to support the analysis.
For your annotated bibliography, you’ll include an entry for your primary source AND
two secondary sources. Be sure that your sources are scholarly – see the information in
the course material on how to use the Ashford Library for research. More is not better, so
two sources should be plenty. Don’t forget to adhere to APA formatting for the
assignment. We’ve included a template and a sample annotated bibliography to help you
understand exactly what is expected of you in this assignment.
Good luck with your research.

These summaries should be 100 to 150 words for each entry.For the Annotated Bibliography assignment, you will write annotations for three sources. One source should be a primary source. Next, you will choose two secondary sources that are additional to the text.
Primary and Secondary Sources

Original documents: Diaries, speeches, manuscripts, letters, interviews, news
film footage, autobiographies, official records, etc.
Creative works: Poetry, drama, novels, music, art, etc.
The primary source is the story, poems, or play you choose to write about. Please see the
List of Literary Works to choose a primary source. The source must come from this list.

Author’s Last Name, First Initial. (Date of Publication). Title of the Literary Work.
Publisher Place: Name of Publisher.
Here, you provide a short description of the work, its themes and plot. You might
include mention of literary devices that are key to the work. If you are writing about two
separate poems, be sure to create a separate entry or reference for each poem. Each entry
should be 100-150 words.
How to cite a journal article:
Last Name, First Initial. (Date). “Title of Article.” Title of Journal, Number(Volume), page
Write a short description of the source and what it contains. Offer some ideas on how the
source relates to your analysis. You can use a quote from the source that you find helpful
to your research; just be sure to cite it appropriately. Keep in mind you need to have two
separate journal articles for the assignment, which means two separate entries in your
annotated bibliography. Each entry should be 100-150 words.
