I’m trying to study for my Literature course and I need some help to understand this question.
Must follow the attached paragraph plan. Cited in MLA format.
Please define for me literary nationalism and how it worked in America during the early 19th century. Please feel free to search for this term on the Internet. Once you have defined literary nationalism, please explain for me how that works or doesn’t work in either of the Washington Irving stories we read Week 4: “Rip Van Winkle” or “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.”
Explain your answer in detail and use specific examples from the text. Remember: to cite and reference any sources that you may use, including the primary text itself. Use MLA formatting and standards.

Notes from the professor on what he is looking for in the writing:
–Use the words of the question in your response. –Use your mind, not your feelings. –If the question has a quotation, focus on it. –If the question does not a quotation, find an appropriate one and focus on it. –Always, always stay focused and stay textual. Finally, while I encourage you to use outside sources, I want you to document them properly. Do not just cut and paste material without proper attribution. Please use the MLA handbook as a guide.
Also if you could pull one or two two quotes from thr story itself and another one or two quotes from other sources. That would be fantastic!
