ENGL 2145 | Short Analysis Essay

Compose a 500-700 word essay that includes a concrete analytical thesis as the final sentence of first paragraph. Your argument (and, ideally, your thesis statement) should connect the reading to one of the sub-disciplines of English as identified in class.

Thesis must focus on a narrow and concrete component of the text for analysis (examples: a scene, a textual or linguistic pattern, the application of a particular theoretical principle, a contradiction or debate evident in the text).

Essay should be formatted by MLA guidelines and submitted (as Word file, PDF, or shareable document format) into the appropriate channel in Slack with an accompanying message that quotes/refers to the thesis statement.

Essay should cite from the primary source and at least two outside sources — at least one should be academic and at least one should be related to the English sub-discipline on which you are focusing.
