Essay on Characterization

Hi, I want you to write an analytical essay, with the following assignement :

“This essay should focus on any of the following texts: “Wuthering heights” by Emily Bronte, “A passage to India” by Forster, “The Merchant of Venice” by Shakespeare or “Mrs. Dalloway” by Virginia Woolf. This essay should be at least 10 pages long and should incorporate research.

While I’d like you to at least consider estrangement or Otherness as you plan your essay, I won’t require that you write about encounters with the Other in this essay. You are free to choose any topic that interests you.

In this essay you will be dealing with larger ideas, as well as with larger sections of the text. This essay should explore a theme or narrative device or characterization (for instance) that runs throughout the text. In the words, you could write an essay that explores the landscape in A Passage to India, arguing something about the significance of its shiftiness and ambiguity, or you could write an essay about Heathcliff’s “mergers and acquisitions,” arguing something specific about his “business” of ruining two families. These are just two possibilities; there are tons of topics you could explore, and of course you can write about any of the texts listed ABOVE.

As with any analytical essay, it is imperative that you formulate a strong THESIS! and use the body of the essay to support it, with EXAMPLES from the text. Liberally quote and analyze the text throughout the essay.

You should also be quoting and analyzing SECONDARY sources. You’ll need to find books and/or articles about your chosen text that support or enhance your argument. Project Muse and JSTOR are good resources, as is the MLA bibliography. You should use at least 4 secondary sources.”

As idicated above, you are free to pick any topic/thesis for the essay (make sure to clearely indicate and identify both) you want as long as it sticks with the instructions and texts listed above and in the file with additional instructions that I have emailed.

P.S. if you need any clarifications or additional information email me.

There are faxes for this order.
