Essay: Goal: You will have to read and reread your chosen text to comprehend its meaning, and
then go further to make an interpretive claim about how that text
does what you see it doing, conveying some message to readers. To frame your claim, listen to
how the essay speaks to you, how it evokes some strong response in you. As a place to start, look
for passages you find particularly puzzling or disturbing: this is where the text is calling you to
figure something out. You will then support your claim by citing a strategy, strategies, and/or
literary devices that the writer incorporates. You will illustrate how these devices work using
textual evidence and independent analysis to show how these literary devices, and evidence,
support your claim.
**Some questions you might ask yourself are: What conclusion can I come to about the
story that relates to a larger context outside of the story? What does the story say about
humanity, human experience, or some subculture of society? How does the use of the
storys literary elements bring me to that conclusion?
What: For this essay you will write an interpretive textual analysis of one of the many short
stories we have/will have read this semester. You will focus on one of the elements weve
covered Character, POV, or Plot for example.
Purpose: Meaning in literary analysis essays is more implied than it is explicit. A big difference
between an argument and a literary text is the role the reader plays in making meaning. In a
literary text, readers interpret more. That is, rather than simply reading the writers thesis, we
fill in gaps of the text to make meaning. You will discover a deeper meaning in your chosen
story through your interpretation and your examination of how the elements in the story work .
Strategy: There is no right or wrong interpretation, but some interpretations are harder to support
than others. To arrive at a solid, complex, original claim you will need to comprehend the text
you are considering and be able to identify literary devices such as plot, character, theme, setting,
imagery, irony, or other stylistic patterns. You might consider diction, style, tone, format,
etcetera. Then you should look at how such literary devices contribute to an overall effect, or
message, or purpose you see in the piece.
Focus: In the paper, you will explain how you see the literary devices doing what they do. In
other words, you will analyze the text and make a case for how you see the text functioning. Go
beyond merely restating what you see in the text; flesh out your thoughts and speculations on how
these elements work.. The more precise you can make your claim your interpretive statement
the more importance you can give that claim, and the better your paper will work.
