For this assignment, find a scholarly article on your Week 4 short story in the SUO Library.  Do not use popular publications, such as summaries from Masterplots or The Introduction to Literary Context, or other media that are not research oriented. Refer to this Research Guide and this video provided for this course by South University Online Library Services.


Post an annotation of your source to the discussion board. Your annotation should include:


A complete APA citation of your scholarly article


A paragraph of summary of the key points presented in your source


A paragraph explaining the source’s quality and how it is relevant to your analytical essay


Here is an example of an annotated APA entry (not an actual source): 


Smith, A. (2016). Journey into the unknown. American Literature, 22(3), 4-5.

This article compares Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “Young Goodman Brown” and Eudora Welty’s “A Worn Path,” discussing the protagonists’ journeys as a focal point. The article examines these two main characters and their different paths in life. Those paths led Young Goodman Brown and Phoenix Jackson into the forest on very different quests, but both were determined to take these journeys that were emotional, meaningful, and dangerous.


Smith’s article offered a fascinating perspective on the motives and outcomes of these two disparate characters and their life paths that led them into the unknown. I gained a better understanding of my character, Phoenix Jackson, by reading this article and contrasting her with Young Goodman Brown. There are several quotations and ideas I will be able to incorporate into my final draft.
