Select a well-known, published literary author from our textbook ( The Norton Introduction to Literature, Shorter 14th edition, edited by Kelly J. Mays Norton, 2022) . and create a PowerPoint presentation about the writer’s life, historical context and work. Suggested length: 15-20 slides.
Writers such as Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, Stephanie Meyer, Nicholas Sparks, etc. are considered popular authors rather than scholarly/literary authors and may not be used for this assignment.
In addition to biographical information, major themes and influences in the writer’s work will be presented.
The major themes that emerge when you study the writer’s work as a whole are usually an influence of their life experiences, their culture, and their time and place.For example, Edgar Allan Poe experienced the loss of his mother in a traumatic way, and then later the loss of his young wife. As a result, most of his protagonists are obsessed with death and even blur the lines between the living and the dead. Therefore, the major themes of his work, influenced by his life, are death, burial, and mourning.
2-3 brief literary selections (quoted excerpts from one or more of the author’s primary works) must be also presented as representative of the major themes and influences in the writer’s work. “Brief” literary selection indicates a few lines from a poem, short story or novel.
Follow the quoted literary selection with a few lines that explain/analyze the significance of the quote.
Be sure to use “literary excerpts” and not just famous quotes the author may have said in a non-literary context.
The “Electronic Library Resources” (see the menu left side of screen) will prove very useful as they are scholarly and provide the information needed for the MLA citation. See the Biography and Literature tabs in the drop-down subject list.
Avoid copy and pasting information. Put into your own words and condense lengthy information into bulleted points rather than a block of text.
Pictures, graphics, videos, etc. are all acceptable to be included.
MLA format must be used for intertextual citations and a Works Cited page as the final slide.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
