An analytical paper which identifies and explores the theme of a specific story
The purpose of this essay is to develop a thesis-driven literary analysis of a short story as a culmination of having read “Boys and Girls.” This is a 5 page (typed, double-spaced) analytical paper which identifies and explores the theme of this particular story.
– Develop a thesis centered on theme (In developing a thesis about theme, answer the question: What does this story want us to understand about __________?) – Identify key elements of the story and use these to develop a thesis. -Textual support (direct quotes) is required. Thoughtfully selecting and integrating passages from the story are the only way to effectively develop your ideas.Be specific. MLA format please!
This is the link to the story, it is only 10 pages long. https://www.rahway.net/cms/lib8/NJ01911623/Centricity/Domain/448/Boys%20and%20Girls%20by%20Alice%20Munro.pdf
I have also attached a photo of all the main points (it’s scrambled so hopefully its understandable) as well as an almost 2 page description of two quotes.
