Literary Analysis Essay

Order Description

1) This semester, we’ve examined race and gender as themes in American literature. Choose one of those themes and discuss and illustrate the various implications and issues. Select three texts that engage with this theme to compare and contrast.

Gender is the theme chosen and the texts are Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible”, Sandra Cisneros’s “Woman Hollering Creek”, and Amy Tan’s “Two Kinds”.
Set forth to prove your assertion about the text:
To do so, you need to:
Analyze your primary sources (the literature you are discussing) and find quotations that support your assertion.
Review the discussions to help you brainstorm and form ideas.
Find secondary sources to back up your assertion. This is your scholarly research. By finding scholars to support your ideas or even counter them, you are backing up your thoughts with evidence from people who are more proficient in the field.
Follow MLA Format:
Use MLA format for the paper. See the links in the module (note: we are using MLA 7th edition, not 8th)
Length: minimum of 5 complete pages
Secondary Sources Included: minimum of 5
Include a Works Cited Page, not to be counted in the 5 pages
Write with an analytical purpose. Do not spend too much space summarizing the texts. Aim for an insightful, organized, effective paper. Follow the standards for essay writing; that is, you must include a thesis statement that clearly articulates your argument; the essay should include an introduction, body paragraphs with topic sentences, and a conclusion that reiterates your thesis; your content should be developed, insightful, and analytical, drawing from both the literature and the secondary sources; your writing should be concise, scholarly, and grammatically and mechanically correct.
