Note: This is NOT a research paper. Your interpretation should be yours alone. Do NOT use outside source material for this essay.
Format
The essay should be 500-700 words long. Use MLA format. You are not required to do research on this essay, but you should still document quotes from the story itself.
What I Will Be Looking For
I will mainly be looking at how well you can support your interpretation of the theme. Remember that your interpretation is valid as long as you support it with evidence from the text itself. Be sure to look at the literary elements, such as setting or symbol or even image and tone to help focus your discussion. How does the author achieve his theme? Why is this theme important? Be sure you are not merely summarizing the story. Your examples should be focused and specific. Synthesize – explain how your examples relate to the theme.
