Annotated Bib Overview: Five Total Sources
In your annotated bibliography, you will need a total of 5 sources, which will include:
For each of your sources, you will write:
1. One paragraph (5-10 sentences) that summarizes your source.
2. A second paragraph (3-5 sentences) that explains how/why this source is useful to your research and how it develops/clarifies an understanding of Jane Eyre. NO first person.
The purpose of compiling an annotated bibliography during the research process is to help writers remember what they have discovered from each source and whether this information might be relevant to their argument. Much like a works cited page at the end of an essay, an annotated bibliography lists sources consulted according to MLA guidelines. However, in addition to this information, researchers also include an “annotation” which briefly summarizes the book or article and considers its potential usefulness.
You will complete an annotated bibliography for Pride and Prejudice with research from 5 sources minimum that prove to be useful in developing a thesis in response to the research question: What is Jane Austen saying about [insert topic] during the Regency period?
For each source, you must include the correct MLA citation, as well as a descriptive paragraph that will help you quickly recall the book’s, chapter’s, or article’s main points and how they might relate to your own developing argument.
Using the library databases and other resources, research your selected topic. Consider how you might phrase your topic or search for things pertaining to your topic beyond just what it is. Remember that Austen wrote and published Pride and Prejudice during the Regency Era in England. Do NOT reference sources about Victorian England! Scan each source you come across to determine whether it is worth reading in full. If so, read the chapter or article, and then add it as an entry to your annotated bibliography.
