You will need to develop a strong thesis statement that can be proven with evidence from the text. Only include relevant evidence from the story that helps you to prove your argument. As an argument analysis, this paper must have a strong, argumentative thesis statement in the introduction. This means the thesis should be a declarative statement (a sentence instead of question) that should be arguable. You should be able to prove it using evidence from the text and your own analysis. It should not be a question, a factual statement, or a description or summary of the short story. Although there are many ways to construct a strong thesis statement, feel free to use the following formula as a guide: [Author] + [Title of the Short Story in Quotation Marks] + [Your interpretation of the story] + [The story’s significance to the reader]. This paper should not merely be a description of the story, a restatement of its content, or a summary of either the text or the author’s life. In fact, you might want to avoid discussing the author at all in your essay and just focus on your own interpretation of the story. Research is not required for this essay. Instead, you will use evidence from the short story itself and your own analysis of it to support your argument and thesis statement. Requirements Your text must be a short story (Avoid choosing a poem, a novella, a novel, a play, or another literary work.) Your essay should be 750 words minimum, but it may be longer. Your paper must be formatted in MLA Style. Research is not required. You will primarily rely on your own literary analysis and ideas when writing this paper. As a consequence, you do not need to include a Works Cited page unless you cite outside information or use research. You must include a clear and well-articulated thesis statement in your introduction. Your paper must be edited and proofread. Your paper should be logically organized.
