Boyle Paper
Fri Mar 20, 2015 1:59pm

Writing the Boyle paper required me to actually understand the stories and the meaning of Literary Analysis. I learned while writing the Boyle paper, you have to speak facts and also support the facts. While on the other hand for the narrative paper I only needed to provide personal memories from the certain event. It seems that I was able to enjoy writing the Boyle paper more, because I knew what was expected and I could prove/provide evidence from the stories. I would have to say it was easier writing the compare and contrast paper because I wasnít hesitant gathering the information and it was find also understand. Even though I really do like and enjoy writing narrative papers, it can be a little challenging making sure your information is right for each section of the story and also itís flowing correctly. I feel that I had a good strengths and hardly any weaknesses. One thing I feel I did a good job on was getting Boyles point across on how he felt about each of the characters. As we know Boyle doesnít just come out and tell us what he thinks about the characters. He expands his description of each character by providing different events and personalities. By him doing this, he has his audience being able to draw and make conclusions by the end of each story. Also by the two stories I picked, it helped that they were both interesting because it made it a whole lot easier to prove and provide all of the facts. Now for the weaknesses, I really canít pin point to where I may have experienced. Overall I am very pleased on how my paper turned out. Compared to all other papers Iíve written in the past, I feel more comfortable because you actually explained what was expected out of all of our papers. By this it makes it easier to write anything. So by you explaining the steps to completing a literary analysis, I was able to finish the paper with no problem of confusion. And with that Iím able to complete any paper with a smooth sailing.
