I don’t understand this Writing question and need help to study.
This is a literature review, not a summary essay!
Write a between four and six page (approx. 1,100 – 1,500 words) interpretive essay that examines literary techniques used by Jon Krakauer in Into Thin Air, and compare those techniques with narrative elements used by the author of at least one of our other assigned readings this term. You can use excerpts from previous essays or discussion posts; however make sure they fit into the overall essay narrative and they relate to the primary focus of the essay, Into Thin Air. Provide specific examples of literary devices, and include short quotes to exemplify points. Use the reference style of your choice. This essay is in lieu of a final examination and therefore represents the culmination of the course. As such, high standards in writing, organization and application of course concepts are expected.
