2. One of the “universal themes” of many of these stories involves reconciliation. Think about what causes conflict in familial relationships and what enables reconciliation. Choose THREE works of literature and discuss this theme.

Due Date: Upload your final paper by 11:59pm on the due date. Use a valid file type for Turnitin (Microsoft Word, Acrobat PDF, Postscript, Text, HTML, WordPerfect (WPD) and Rich Text Format).

Length Requirement: 6-7 pages

Formatting Requirement: Adhere to MLA guidelines for formatting.

Note: You must include a Works Cited page that lists the three works you are discussing. Also, while I don’t encourage you to use outside sources, if you do, include those in your list of works cited. Your Works Cited page must adhere to MLA works cited page guidelines, and it does not count as part of the page-length requirement.

Further Instructions:

– Make sure you include a title for your analysis. Your title must clearly indicate that this is an essay about (the) literature.

– At the end of your first paragraph, include a clear, direct thesis statement
(Links to an external site.)
in your essay’s introduction that provides focus for your discussion. Your thesis must clearly focus on the prompt, and it must offer up a statement that needs to be proven in your discussion.

– In your introduction, you must also preview the works you will discuss in the order you discuss them. Mention both the authors and the “titles” (in quotations not italics). Also, make certain the works you choose are from the “Living in Families” unit.

– Go beyond the 5-paragraph essay.

– Write in present tense
. When you write about literature, use present tense—the words continue to speak to you from the page.

– Make sure you supply sufficient textual evidence
to support your ideas. In each body paragraph of your essay, provide 2 to 3 direct quotations to indicate a close reading of the literature. This does not mean “padding” your essays with lengthy quotations. Choose quotations wisely, integrate them correctly, and analyze them in your discussion.

– Remember—and I can’t stress this enough—the essay is not merely a series of plot summaries
. Rather, I am more interested in what you have to say about the literature and any comparisons or contrasts you can make.

– Make sure to proofread your paper before turning it in. Grammar, spelling, and punctuation count.
