For this assignment you need to identify and interpret a consistent theme you found throughout the book. You will need to develop a short and cohesive essay of at least 3 paragraphs (including an introduction and a conclusion) and support the theme you have identified by referencing at least three passages from the readings, of which at least two should be from different chapters in the book. For example, you may use 2 references from chapter 1 and 1 references from chapter 2, but that doesn’t limit you from using more than two chapters.
Remember to be careful of turning the essay into, “the author is making an argument on X”. Take into consideration the form, including but not limited to: style, narrative voice, characterization, and symbol. Think about how the theme you chose to write about relates to the topics and themes found in other assigned materials. In certain cases, you may need to identify key characters and plots of specific chapters in order to provide context to the theme you have chosen to write about.
