They should begin by stating the proposed universal and its scope—principally, statistical or absolute (see the essay “What are Literary Universals?”); they should then go on to summarize the evidence for its cross-cultural existence. Problems with proposed universals should be roughly 250-500 words in length (not counting works cited). They should begin by identifying the proposed universal at issue. They should go on to explain the problem. Examinations of individual literary works in relation to universals should be roughly 2,000-3,000 words in length and should indicate how the use of universals illuminates the literary work in new ways or how the application extends our understanding of the universal. Surveys of research traditions on literary universals should be roughly 2,000-3,000 words in length (not counting works cited).
