Write a 3- to 5-page essay that analyzes one or more of the works discussed during the first half of the semester. These works include the following:
- Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird
- Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Your “Course Documents” in the “Writing Literature Essays” folder in your Blackboard course shell contains much information about how to write a literary analysis essay.
For this assignment, you must write an argument that provides your interpretation/ analysis of the work and supports that claim with appropriate and sufficient details (evidence) from the work. Your interpretation must come from your own reading and thinking about the work—not from critical or literary analyses you have read about it (including CliffNotes and SparkNotes).
