HOW TO ANALYZE LITERATURE
Introductory Paragraph (The essayâ€™s first paragraph):
-Your introductory paragraph ends with a thesis; by â€œendâ€, make sure itâ€™s the last sentence of your first paragraph.
-Your thesis must take a position; itâ€™s must explicitly state you think people should (or should not) do. Your thesis should refer to the character or he author; it should refer to people who exist in reality, donâ€™t write what you think is the authorâ€™s viewpoint; instead write your own.
-Make sure that the position is worth arguing. In other words, make it an opinion some people would disagree with it. If your position is one that most people agree with, then is a week thesis that makes a week essay.
Your analytic paragraph (the 2nd paragraph, but also the 3rd, the 4th and the 5th at least)
Open each analytic paragraph with viewpoint; state what you think people should do; it should act as a sub-heading for your thesis that also declares what people should do.
1—Do not open your analytic paragraph by announcing the story/poem/play/ and what happen in it, or what the writer believes. When staring your analytic paragraph, try not to mention the work- or the author â€“ at all. Neither one relates to what should be your viewpoint.
– Do not open you analytic paragraph by mentioning the characters and their problem; remember you must focus instead on opening with what you think people should or should not do.
– Do not open you analytic paragraph with a quote. You must star with your own words, not the authorâ€™s.
2–Provide a quote. After you have finish opening with viewpoint for your analytical paragraph, then introduce the quote; before writing it, you may briefly relate the characterâ€™s trouble or situation that relates to your viewpoint , You certainly want to name (narrator? Character? Authors? ) who says this quote.
– Start the quote with a quotation mark and finish with one; keep them close to the letters and each one should pint toward the quote.
-you must add citation after your quote.
-do not quote too much; no more that forty per cent of the paragraphâ€™s words should be the authorâ€™s if your quote is that long or longer, then you need to either edit your quote or write more.
3– Comment after you r quote in your words after your quote; do not end the analytic paragraph with a quote.
-Write how your quote connects back to your viewpoint at the paragraphâ€™s beginning .
-do not write what happen next in the story or play after your quote.
-Do not end your paragraph telling about characters; end it, like you opening, without mentioning either the character or the author, again end your paragraph by clarifying how your quote proves your papers arguments. This will inevitably refer back to your opening paragraphâ€™s viewpoint.
