Writing assignment: Review

The assignment for the term paper is to write a review for a media item, such as a news article, podcast or documentary film, that is related to any of the subjects covered by this course. Several possibilities will be posted shortly.

Below is an outline of the suggested format. There is no minimum page limit; as with a legal brief, be sure to thoroughly and fully cover the required points without repetition and/or unnecessary ‘filler.’

The completed assignment should be emailed to me in MS Word or RTF format, and is due by 8 PM on June 11, 2019.

Part I.: Who, where, when & what?

Identify the author(s)/creator(s) of the work under review, and provide information that might help clarify who this person is in relation to the work being reviewed. Is this a scholar? If so, what is her field? Is she a public official or a prominent blogger? Is he a public intellectual? A reporter? A spokesperson? Has he written other material? If necessary, do a quick internet search.

Identify the work being reviewed. What is its title? Is it an article in a news publication, a podcast, a documentary or some other form of media? Be sure to include the date of the publication; usually just the month and year will suffice.

The rest of this part should be about the work’s topic—what it is about. In order to make this part particularly precise, use a strong verb to describe the work’s claim. For example, the work may suggest, argue, imply, urge, contrast, claim, analyze or explain something.

Part II: How?

In this section, provide a summary of how the work develops, structures, and supports its argument. What kind of evidence does the work draw upon? How is the case built? Perhaps by comparing and contrasting, illustrating, defining, or providing context? Perhaps the work starts out with a narrative and then moves into a description of several research studies? This section should account for all the most important parts of the work being reviewed.

Part III: Why?

What was the purpose of this work? What does the work intend for us to do, believe, feel, understand or think about its subject? In the first section , you told us what that work is arguing; now it is time to consider why the work has done so.

Part IV: Conclusion and your own opinion

In this section, provide you opinion of the work. You should address both its surface quality (e.g. “the piece was poorly organized”, “the documentary was slickly produced”), and the sum and substance of the message it meant to convey (e.g. “the article would have us glibly believe that all actors in the justice system have the best of intentions”).

Do not hesitate to “call b.s.” if you sense that the work is being dishonest, or to wholeheartedly agree with it, but always be sure to explain your own position. It is appropriate to cite to other sources for contrasting information/opinion/analysis in this section, and a thorough treatment of such other sources may result in extra credit.

Sample Solution

Translation process is an artistic communication between the author, the translator and the reader and the words used by the translator constitutes the major part in the process of communicating ideas or feelings of the author. “Literature is both the condition and the place of artistic communication between senders and addressees or the public” (Basnett,2002) The translator is the first one who must comprehend, read and interpret the source text then to render it in a different medium. Literary translation includes fiction,poetry, drama and the language arts must be taken into consideration by the translator. The purposes of the translator are to transfer the information but also to create an equivalent form of art. The beauty of the translators’ work is that they bring a great contribution to the creative process being recognized as part of the literary world. The literary translator must therefore possess a great knowledge of both the TL culture and language and the SL culture being able to command to>
