Homework 1: Literary Artistic Biography Topicï¼šE. M. Forster Howards End
Part of the directions for paper #1 state: You will be required to use four sources in your research. One source must be at least one primary text i.e. a novel, film, painting, performance, or poem. The second and third sources must be from either a book of criticism or an article from a literary database. The fourth source maybe from the internet, but cannot be fromWikipedia, an online encyclopedia, or personal blogs.
