Single Character Analysis
Now that you have observed the attributes of the characters in the short stories “A&P” and “Greasy Lake,” write a character-analysis essay in which you analyze one major or minor character from any short story in Chapter 21: “Fiction for further reading.” Use specific language from Chapters 14 and 17 when crafting your analysis. What “type” of character are you analyzing? How are language and the style/tone of the story used to formulate the character? Is the story reflective of the character, or the character of the story? How would a reader from another country or culture potential draw different conclusions about the characters in these stories? Your response should be 3-4 pages.
For a successful paper:
Have a strong thesis statement at the end of your introduction paragraph.
Use a “hook” in the introduction paragraph to grab your readers’ attention.
Use specific textual support from the short story in the body of your paper.
Finish with a strong conclusion that summarizes your main points, restates the thesis in some way, and possibly returns to the initial “hook.”
Proofread for errors in spelling, grammar, and writing mechanics. Vary sentence structure and sentence length to add interest.
Use APA formatting
Use APA when citing the text; include a reference page citation at the end of the paper for the short story in the anthology
