Write a analysis of the linked document, which is a a five-page excerpt from an article that was published in a London newspaper, the Pall Mall Gazette, in 1866. It is one man s story about entering the workhouse and sleeping there for one night. (Two tips: The man who is called Daddy is not his father. The mutton broth is not soup, but bath water.)
Answer the question: What was it like to enter and stay overnight in the workhouse?
The intent of the essay is to do a deep, interior analysis of the document. It is not a research assignment, although you may need to google basic facts. Each essay should have the following components:
1. An Introduction. What will you argue? (For this assignment your argument is what you contend the writer is trying to say about the workhouse.) 2-3 sentences. Keep it short, in proportion to the short length of the assignment.
2. A Context Paragraph. Who, what, when. Who wrote the document (including biographical details relevant to understanding the document)? When (and the significance of the date)? What? (What were the workhouses?; What was the Pall Mall Gazette)? Explain how each of the details informs a reading of the document. This will require basic internet research. Use footnotes or endnotes to cite the url of each source. Keep this under half a page. It should be background information, not take over the paper. (As noted below under editorial points to remember, use Chicago-style footnotes or endnotes (link at the bottom) for any information you use outside of the document. For quotes from the document you can just put the page number in brackets right after the quote.)
3. 3-4 Themes in Paragraphs (without headings). Analyze 3-4 major themes you identify in the document. Use one theme per paragraph. e.g. The workhouse is humiliating. Use specifics and short quotes to back up your ideas. You cannot cover everything. You must prioritize what you think is most important in the document. Analyze your chosen themes thoroughly. You are not collecting facts, but analyzing how the author portrays the workhouse.
4. Conclusion. Sum up your ideas. Why is this significant? Short 3-4 sentences in proportion to the length of the paper.
Editorial Points to Remember: Number your pages, double-space and use proper English. DO NOT USE HEADINGS. Use only short quotes to keep the focus on your own analysis. If you do use a quote over 3 lines long it should be single-spaced and indented. When you quote from the document you may use parenthetical citations (putting the page number in brackets beside the quote) or Chicago-style footnotes or endnotes (link to how to do Chicago-style notes linked below). No bibliography required, unless you cite a source other than the documents (such as a website). Good luck!
