Due: Monday, October 8Form/Length: 500-600 words, 12-point font and standard one-inch margins; cite your text in MLA style (which means parenthetical in-text citations and a works cited page for the textbook).Topic: Choose one of the short stories we have read in the fiction section of the course. You are welcome to choose what aspect of the story you would like to focus upon, though I am happy to help with topic development. Possible topics include the literary techniques we have been studying so far (plot, narrative form, and so forth), themes (such as romance, mortality, or nature), or social issues such as class/gender/race. Other ideas are welcome and feel free to ask for feedback on your ideas.Approach and Structure: The essay should include a clear central claim offering an interpretation of some aspect ofthe text (no plot summary, just analysis/interpretation). The introduction should state this claim (your thesis), give an overview of subtopics that the essay will cover, and include a sense of why your thesis and topic are significant (to give your essay a sense of purpose). The body paragraphs should each explain a subtopic and offer a quote or two (and in some cases, examples of details as well as quotes, but quotes are just fine) to illustrate each paragraph's main idea. In other words, the paper will involve a "close reading" of specific moments in the text, which means closely analyzing the language and offering a sense of its effects and meanings. You may build on our class discussions, but should also offer your own thoughts about the topic. You need not do any secondary research; your evidence for your analysis is the primary text (the story itself). If you want to refer to secondary material (such as a historical reference or perhaps theory that explores class or gender, for instance) you are welcome to do so but just focusing on the story is plenty.A successful essay will be well-written, thoughtful, full of analysis and interpretation of the meanings and effects of aspect(s) of the story, and supported with examples (quotes) from the text. A quote per paragraph.
