I have completed writing 1000 words about my chosen topic and have become more aware of the context, style and intention of the two poets. My first step is tightening the introduction via three clear and connected thesis statements which can lay the foundation for my analysis. While I am pleased with my progress, a big challenge I face is that my current analysis is not detailed enough or strongly linked to my research question. That said, I find myself in a better position to do more detailed analysis based on the research I’ve conducted. I have learnt from my review of academic journals that I need to investigate literary theories such as New Historicism, multiplicity of perspectives and intertextuality. I am in the process of reviewing my current writing and evaluating whether it is descriptive or analytical. The key question now is whether my writing provides fresh insights and whether it considers the implications of my observations.
