Philip Nel's English 830: Comics & Graphic Novels

DUE: See schedule
LENGTH: 1000 words.


        Write a review of a work of literary criticism, such as you might do for an academic journal. I'll post it on the web so that all your classmates can benefit from it. So, when you turn it in, please submit two copies. (1) Give a hard copy to me. (2) Post a copy to the "Book Review" group of the "Groups" component in K-State OnLine for English 830.

Some Reviews by Yours Truly

        These are intended to serve as examples. Please note. These links are accessible only via K-State; if you're not logged in on campus, find these via K-State Libraries' Find e-journal.

Due dates

The reviews will be due a week before the presentations. Reviewers will choose a book that will be useful to their presentation. There are two benefits of this approach. First, if you are reviewing a book that ties in with your presentation, then one assignment will help you with the other. Second, staggering the due dates over the course of the semester gives everyone a chance to process each review and, perhaps, to consider reading or consulting the book for their term papers.
