I need an explanation for this English question to help me study.
Analyse 2 characters from any of these 2 short stories …..
2. Edgar Allan poe ” the cask of amontillado”
3. shirley jackson ” the lottery”
4. Toni Morrison ” sweetness”
5. Raymond Carver ” so much water so close to home”
6. curtis sittenfield ” the prairie wife ”
- About 3 pages—750-1,000 words, double-spaced.
- Present essay in proper MLA format. Sample paper for formatting. (Links to an external site.)
- Have catchy “Hook” (first attention-grabber sentence)
- Have a solid “Link” (sentence/s that connect/s hook to the context).
- Context: (reporter questions: who, what, why, where, what and how?) Who wrote the text? When was it written? How was it written?
- CITE IN THE FIRST PARAGRAPH WHEN YOU AE SUMMARIZING
- (ABOUT) THREE WORDS IN A ROW THAT ARE NOT YOUR OWN need to be quoted; otherwise you run the risk of plagiarism.
Who are the two characters that you will focus on? Why are they important? What is it about him/her that makes him/her [intriguing]—your choice? These are just suggestions. You may not need to answer them all—but do need:
- Author’s full name on first mention, then last name only in the essay. Don’s say “in Raymond’s story”–Carver is not your buddy, so no first name only–ever!
- Title of Work. MLA– SHORT STORIES USE QUOTES. Books use italics.
- Some context (context description mentioned above)
- Character Description
All these are required for each text you choose before you state your thesis.
- Thesis, made up of FACT (from the story) and Opinion
For example, “Comparing___to____, the more [intriguing] figure is________ because of _________ and __________.
- Stay away from logical fallacies.
- Limited use of the “I” is fine, but only use when necessary.
- Avoid “you”; (maybe for the “hook,” otherwise too colloquial and can put reader on the defensive). Preferably not at all.
- Use solid body paragraphs that support your idea.
- Cite evidence and quotes from essay to support your argument.
- End with a strong conclusion that wraps up but is not repetitive. Stay away from “In conclusion” (very elementary).
- Works Cited—you only need to cite the two stories, but if you want to do more research, that’s your prerogative.
