To do a "Literary Term" Assignment, do the following:
Write the word at the top underline and bold
Define the word--this must be in your own words...do not expect any credit for copy/paste or copying down the definition from the website.
Give one example of the word from literature
Give the AUTHOR of the above example (NO WEB ADDRESSES)
Give another example of the word from literature
Give that source (NO WEB ADDRESSES)
Also...make sure the definition falls under the topic of Literature. For example, if the word is "mood", don't give me a definition like "A temporary state of mind or feeling."
Give me a definition like "Mood has to do with the emotions the author makes the reader feel in less direct ways--by the sounds of the words she uses, the length and rhythm of sentences, the choice of images and their associations."
**Note: You cannot use the following as examples from literature: friends or family quotes, movies, songs, your own made-up examples, etc. You also cannot use the same source several times for the same word. I am asking you to search "classic" literature for this assignment rather than using reference books, etc.. Don't assume you can turn in lame stuff and get a good grade...you won't. You are now "UPPER CLASSMEN" and I want, yea, expect quality work from each of you.
Here is an example of a "literature vocabulary term"
Definition--A Japanese lyric verse form having three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables, traditionally invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons.
Fallen sick on a journey,
In dreams I run wildly
Over a withered moor.
Source: Basho, Matsuo. (a book on Haikus)
From a bathing tub
I throw water into the lake -
slight muddiness appears.
