Fiction Analysis – Rough Draft
By the due date assigned, attach the rough draft of your essay as a Microsoft Word document to the Discussion Area.
Compose an essay of 750 words in which you offer your interpretation of a literary element (such as character, theme, imagery, or symbolism) in one of the assigned short stories.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You must choose one of the stories below to work from for your Week 4 & Week 5 assignments in order to receive credit. Links to the stories can be found in my Week 4 Discussion pinned post or on the syllabus under Week 4.
Gaiman's "How to Talk to Girls at Parties"
O'Connor's "A Good Man is Hard to Find"
Walker's "Everyday Use"
Start by selecting one of the short stories assigned by your instructor. Brainstorm to identify the literary element that you would like to explore in the story. Then, develop a thesis that offers a specific interpretation of this element. If you have trouble coming up with a thesis, contact your instructor, who will help you. Do not do any outside research at this point. Use APA formatting and citations.
Tips for the Essay
Use APA style for formatting the essay and for source citations. Begin with a title page and use proper font and spacing. End with a separate references page. Refer to the Week 1 lecture on avoiding plagiarism for an APA essay template and additional resources.
