Essay title: 1984

Length: 4-6 pages, typed, double-spaced, 10 or 12 pt. font, with one-inch margins.

Required sources: None (except the ones you're writing about, of course). The idea here is to use your own abilities to interpret a work of fiction, a movie or a poem, in this case, one of the works we have read in the first part of the course: the novel 1984.. You may use supportive sources if you wish, but they are not necessary, and if you do use them, you must cite them.

Purpose: To show your ability to carefully read and understand a fictional work. To identify the use of literary devices such as metaphors, similes, symbolism, setting, etc. and to explain how those devices create meaning in the work. To write an essay that uses quotes from the novel as support and which you have discussed in a way that clearly explains how they make their meaning. To write a coherent, well-structured, and well-supported essay that observes the dictates of good essay writing.

Approach: See this site for an excellent break-down of the process:
