I’m trying to learn for my English class and I’m stuck. Can you help?
Assignment: Write a short essay (1000 words) that defends a thesis you developed through a close critical reading/analysis of a literary work listed on the syllabus and supported by at least three secondary sources. This essay still relies on textual support from the primary text, but includes at least three secondary sources that support/sustain the student’s argument. Do not confuse “critical analysis” with “plot summary”; the goal is to develop, sustain, and advance a thesis based on a critique of the primary text but also supported by at least three secondary sources.
