        A literature review is part of a research paper; it is the one that provides information that gives an idea of the theoretical works that you are taking as the basis for your research. Many people mistakenly confuse this concept with a bibliography. So in the second case, we are dealing only with a certain kind of list of authors and names of books, which you referred to the entire time of work. In the case of a literary review, however, you are not just naming this or that work. You draw parallels with other texts (on the basis of common timeframes, common political views of the authors, etc.), looking for differences, and express your opinion on the point of view presented in the book. You can get help with writing a literature review here It is extremely important that in this part of your work you emphasize the significance of your research, namely, to specify how deeply a particularly problematic issue has been studied, whether it has been considered from all sides, in the works of famous scientists mentioned by you yourself.
        General requirements:
        1. It is imperative that you write an introduction with a smooth transition to the topic of the review.
        2. Visually highlight the main part (red line, bold type), as well as present the information, for example, in the form of a publication.
        3. A conclusion is necessarily necessary, in which you will once again return to the words of the introduction, and most importantly summarize the analyzed material, it will be successful to bring all of the above to the conditions of modern life. (For example, the review dealt with the inequality of the sexes and the peculiarities of their opposition in the works of the poets of the Silver Age. In the end, you could cite lines from the work of a contemporary author touching on the same issue.)
        4. As you analyze, look for commonalities in the authors’ views on the problem or lack of precise information about something, which will go to your advantage, as a condition for the relevance of the work. Introduce your thesis statement, and use the sources as rebuttal or proof. Give a good assessment of the source in terms of timing, impartiality regarding the stated topic, and proof of the author’s arguments. Use your own words when writing the information you have studied, do not plagiarize. After writing the paper, make sure that all the requirements (points made by your plan) are met.
        Pay attention to the logic in the construction of the text, and most importantly on the smoothness of the transitions from paragraph to paragraph. It is worth excluding from the final text jargon vocabulary, profanity, however, if it is required by the features of the study, it is not worth it (for example, many poetic texts contain jargon and examples of profane words for a certain kind of figurative stylization). And be sure to do a correction procedure, ideally, give the finished work to someone to proofread mistakes that you may not pay attention to anymore out of habit.
