For your second essay, you will write a 1,000 word, thesis-driven analysis in which you discuss how two texts render some kind of invisible ideology visible to the reader. Once you pick your two texts, think about what they reveal about a specific ideological belief. You will then write a thesis in which you make a clear argument about the relationship between the two texts through your lens. Please note that you should not compare and contrast the texts… you want to have a coherent argument about the relationship. Your thesis cannot say, for example, that “both ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ and Wuthering Heights deal with gender in different ways.” You want to say something like this: “Both ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ and Wuthering Heights reveal how male authority turns medical diagnosis into a patriarchal tool to oppress women.”
Be sure to have an introduction where you set up your thesis by introducing the two texts you will use and by invoking the language of your lens. Be sure to include the title, year, and author of each text. Include your thesis statement.
Organize your body paragraphs to prove your point. Think through what you have to do, step by step, to make your case. You will need, for example, to zero in on common language in each text that you will interpret through your lens. That’s how you establish the link between the texts. Where are the moments in Wuthering Heights and Harvest where the relationship between race and class is clear? How does each text explain this? What are the common ideas, words, etc? How can I use the lens to interpret these moments together?
While the first few body paragraphs may (and probably should) discuss the each text individually, the last few body paragraphs should discuss both texts simultaneously, linking specific words and phrases from each text together. If you do not discuss the texts together in the last few body paragraphs, your essay will not be able to successfully link the texts together and avoid being a compare and contrast essay. Failure to join the text in these later body paragraphs will have a detrimental impact on your essay grade.
Have a conclusion where you speculate on the larger significance of your argument.
Be sure to structure your body paragraphs as discussed in class and as described in the Writing Rules handout. Also, be sure to follow all the other rules in the Writing Rules Handout.
Please note that this assignment requires you to utilize everything you’ve learned about analyzing literature in a larger context over the course of this semester. I’ll be looking to see all these components when I grade your essay. Feel free to meet or e-mail with me to discuss the assignment, your specific argument, etc.
