Literary Analysis:You may analyze a poem, short story, play, novel, movie, artwork,or piece of music

Length: 7 paragraphsType your paper and use MLA format.You may analyze a poem, short story, play, novel, movie, artwork,or piece of music.Have a thesis statement sufficient to carry you through 7 paragraphs, and place it in your introductory paragraph. Ideally, the thesis can have 4 \”subparts,\” and you can analyze each subpart in a separate paragraph. For example, you can analyze character, dialogue, setting, plot, and theme as these emphasize your thesis.Think of the work you did in applying plot to short stories, or how you saw that character, setting, and narration helped create the sense of horror in \”The Cask of Amontillado.\” Also, you might reread your poetry analyses and the tips starting on p. 712 to spur your creativity in selecting a thesis.Alternatively, choose one of the elements of literature, i.e., plot, or character, or narration, or setting, or dialogue, or theme, and develop a thesis around it–again, it makes sense to divide your thesis into 4 subparts, each to be explained in a full paragraph.You may use the second paragraph to give the reader biographical information about the author and the time period in which the work was created. This also may be fertile ground for a thesis (the first wave of feminism and how it is demonstrated in \”A Jury of Her Peers,\” for example).Have a conclusion paragraph which underscores what you have written about, without just repeating what your thesis is. You can, for example, include a question that arose in the writing, something that might suggest further analysis.Include citations as necessary, and have a works cited page. If your paper is strictly a literary analysis with no biographical information, and you didn\’t refer to any outside source, all you will need to do is cite the work at the end of the paper.
