“Imp of the Perverse” Prompt

In a well-written, short essay with a clear introduction, thesis statement, and conclusion, analyze a paragraph or two of your choosing, specifically focusing on the purpose and the strategies (i.e. syntax, diction, rhetorical devices) Poe uses to promote the idea of the “imp of the perverse.” This is an exercise in close reading and close analysis, and that’s what I’m looking for. You should be analyzing in-depth one or two of these paragraphs ONLY -- really close analysis! Approximately 2-2.5 pages, typed, MLA format in turnitin.com and due on Thursday, April 12.
