Task IV – Critical Lens preparation
For the Task IV on the regents, you will be required to interpret a quote. Agree or disagree with your interpretation of the quote and provide two pieces of literature as evidence of your position. In the introduction of your critical lens essay, you must provide the work’s title and author, and in the body of the essay, you must provide specific details from the texts including literary devices.

To help you prepare for this, you are going to become familiar with four literary works from your high school studies.

Fill out the following worksheets. Choose two literary works from junior year (eg: Beowulf, The Canterbury Tales: “Prologue,” “The Wife of Bath’s Tale,” “The Pardoner’s Tale,” The Tragedy of Macbeth, Frankenstein, Fahrenheit 451, etc.). Also, choose two literary works from freshman or sophomore year (eg.. Of Mice and Men, Raisin in the Sun, The Crucible, Greek Gods and Heroes, Catcher in the Rye, a short story or poem, etc.)
