compose a nine-paragraph essay about the old man and the sea

I need some part of my essay at tomorrow. But I only need the whole work at may 14th.For this assignment, youâ??ll get some practice explaining and responding to critical points from three critical reviews.
To do so, compose a nine-paragraph essay that introduces and responds to three critical reviews of Hemingwayâ??s
The Old Man and the Sea.As always, begin with some history and backgroundâ??this time about the book The Old Man and the Sea. Give a
little history about the book, then briefly summarize its plot. After that, transition toward a thesis statement that
closes your introduction, one that comments on both a) the criticsâ?? general view of the book and b) your response to
them.
In the body of your essay, provide two paragraphs for each of the three critical reviews. In each case, introduce the
critic and quote their claim, then provide evidence from the book to support that claim. Thatâ??s the first paragraph.
In the second paragraph, lay out your position in response to the critic, then provide evidence from the book to
support your claim. Summarize, paraphrase and quote correctly. Blend short quotes into your general summary of
the example. Avoid floating quotes. Keep your verb tense consistent throughout the body paragraphs. Cite
correctly.
To begin your conclusion, restate your thesis. Then provide a transition from that restated thesis to a discussion of
the futureâ??a future that somehow relates to the book.

Final Essay
First, when it comes to the memo heading, be sure to tap the â??Tabâ? key after typing the colons
after To, From, Date and Re. Thatâ??ll line up everything else. Also, put â??1A Onlineâ? after your
nameâ??though without the quotation marks. Itâ??s always a good idea to identify your class (and
class time, too, if requested) in case your homework gets separated from the others in your class.
And finally, always put the due dateâ??not the date you do it.
The Old Man & The Critics
Notice how Iâ??ve italicized The Old Man in the title above. Major titles, even abbreviated versions,
always go in italics. Minor titles, such as the title of a critical review, always go in quotation
marks.
For this assignment, youâ??ll get some practice explaining and responding to critical points from three critical reviews.
To do so, compose a nine-paragraph essay that introduces and responds to three critical reviews of Hemingwayâ??s
The Old Man and the Sea.
Note that the point of this essay is to introduce The Old Man and the Sea and then to respond to
three critical reviews. You can use the three critical reviews Iâ??ve posted to Canvas. If you prefer,
you can use any of the reviews you submitted for your research homeworkâ??providing, of
course, those reviews were approved. Use the reviews Iâ??ve posted as a default. Email me if you
have questions about any of your reviews. As for the nine paragraphs: The introduction will be
two paragraphs, the body will be six paragraphs, and the conclusion will be one paragraph.
As always, begin with some history and backgroundâ??this time about the book The Old Man and the Sea. Give a
little history about the book, then briefly summarize its plot. After that, transition toward a thesis statement that
closes your introduction, one that comments on both a) the criticsâ?? general view of the book and b) your response to
them.
The introduction for this essay will be two paragraphs long. The first paragraph will introduce
the book; the second paragraph will summarize the bookâ??s plot. When introducing the book,
touch on its history: Consider Hemingwayâ??s life and career in the 1950s and what the book and
its subsequent awards may have meant for him. When summarizing the plot, tell the whole
story in 7-8 lines. Leave that final line for your thesis statement.
For your thesis, youâ??ll need to do a bit of induction. Youâ??ll have to read and consider the three
critical reviews, determine a critical point from each, and then draw some (i.e., synthesize) sort
of conclusion about them. For instance, if the critics all liked a certain aspect of the book, say so;
then add your response to them: Do you agree or disagree with them? Sample theses might be:
o
o
Three critics appreciated Santiagoâ??s focus on pasta, and so did I.
Two of three critics disliked the bookâ??s gastric theme, yet I enjoyed that aspect.
In the body of your essay, provide two paragraphs for each of three critical reviews. In each case, introduce the
critic and quote their claim, then provide evidence from the book to support that claim. Thatâ??s the first paragraph.
In the second paragraph, lay out your position in response to the critic, then provide evidence from the book to
support your claim. Summarize, paraphrase and quote correctly. Blend short quotes into your general summary of
the example. Avoid floating quotes. Keep your verb tense consistent throughout the body paragraphs. Cite
correctly.
In each case, for each review, youâ??ll have two body paragraphs. In the first paragraph, youâ??ll
need three things: a topic sentence, a reference from the review, and a supporting example
from the book. First, for the topic sentence, identify the critic by name, if possible; by publication source, if not. Also, briefly lay out that criticâ??s main point about the book. Samples might
be:
o
o
Critic Bob Brown viewed Santiago as one cool dude.
One SF Chronicle critic pointed out Santiagoâ??s avuncular relationship with the boy.
Keep the topic sentence relatively short, no longer than one line across the page. Then, to
complete the first half of that first paragraph, expand on the criticâ??s point as expressed in the
review. To do so, youâ??ll summarize the criticâ??s overall main point, blending in a quoted snippet
from the review. Youâ??ll have to cite the review by paragraph number since you probably will not
have page numbers. Do so like this: (¶ 5). You can find the ¶ symbol by clicking on INSERT, then
clicking on SYMBOL. You should find the ¶ on the list. Thatâ??s the first half of the first paragraph.
For the second half of the first paragraph, transition toward a discussion of evidence from the
book. If the critical review points out how Santiago was a cool dude, the critic most likely gave
an example in the review. If so, you can use that same example to complete your paragraph.
Just summarize the example in your own words, blending in a quoted snippet from the book. Be
sure you cite the page number from the book. If the critic did not provide an example from the
book, you should be able to find an example on your own.
Remember: If you mention Hemingway when you begin referencing The Old Man and the Sea,
you will only need to include a page number when citing: e.g., (5). If you do not mention
Hemingway when you begin referencing the book, you will need to include his last name in the
citation: e.g., (Hemingway 5). Best to include Hemingwayâ??s name when you shift your focus to
the book. The structure of that first paragraph looks like this:
First Body Paragraph
Topic sentence with critical point and author or publication name.
ï?·
ï?·
ï?·
Introduce and summarize main point from critical review.
Blend in a quoted snippet from the review, citing correctly.
Keep this portion 3.5-4 lines long.
ï?·
ï?·
ï?·
Transition toward a discussion of the book, mentioning Hemingway
Summarize the example that proves the criticâ??s point (3.5-4 lines).
Blend a quoted snippet from the book into that summary.
For the second paragraph, begin by stating in the topic sentence your response to the critical
point. If you agree with the critic, simply say so. If you disagree, also say so. After that, if you
agree with the critic, find at least one new example from another part of the book that proves
the criticâ??s point. Summarize that example, blending in a quoted snippet; then, cite it correctly
by page number from the book. You can use the whole paragraph to summarize and discuss that
one example. Or you can split the paragraph evenly and discuss two examples. The second
example, however, must be from a different part of the book than the other two examples.
If you disagree with the critic, find at least one example from the book that contradicts the
criticâ??s point. Summarize that example, blending in a quoted snippet; then, cite it correctly by
page number from the book. You can use the whole paragraph to summarize and discuss that
one example. Or you can split the paragraph evenly in two and discuss two examples. The
second example, however, must be from a different part of the book than your first supporting
example. Be sure to cite the example(s) correctly. Again, mention Hemingway at the start of
your discussion in this paragraph so that you can omit his name from the parenthetical citation.
The structure of that second paragraph looks like this:
Second Body Paragraph
Topic sentence with your response to the critical point.
ï?·
ï?·
ï?·
Summarize an example from the book that supports your position.
Blend in at least one quoted snippet from the book, citing correctly.
Use all 7-8 remaining lines to expand and explain this support, or…
—————————————————————————————————ï?·
ï?·
ï?·
Shift to another example from the book that supports your point
Summarize the example, blending in a quoted snippet from the book.
Summarize both examples in 3.5-4 lines each.
Review the Quoting Lesson in Module 8B to reacquaint yourself with how to blend snippets into
your overall summary examples. Also, be sure to avoid floating quotes, which are relatively long
quotes (sometimes short quotes, too) that are simply dropped into your paragraphs, often with
only a signal phrase attached. Better to blend in snippets from the original text. And finally, be
sure to keep your verb tense consistent. You might want to put everything in the past tense for
consistency.
To begin your conclusion, restate your thesis. Then provide a transition from that restated thesis to a discussion of
the futureâ??a future that somehow relates to the book. Follow these guidelines:
When restating your thesis, you must rephrase your main point. If we said Hemingway was
â??dedicatedâ? in the thesis statement, we might describe him as â??devotedâ? in the restated thesis.
Do not simply change one word, though, keeping the rest of the restated thesis the exact same
as the thesis. The idea here is to rephrase, or even paraphrase, the thesis while still maintaining
the same idea.
After restating your thesis, transition to your final discussion of the future. While the future
must somehow relate to the book, it doesnâ??t have to be about the book itself. It can be about
the point of your thesis, for example. Say the main point of your essay is about the joy of sport
fishing. Perhaps, in your conclusion, you might discuss how Santiagoâ??s example might inspire a
new fad for big-game fishing off the coast of Cuba. Just keep the focus on the futureâ??â??a future
that somehow relates to the book.�
ï?·
Single-space the memo essay.
Be sure to check your paragraph format. Set the spacing before and after a paragraph at 0�.
Then, when drafting, after each paragraph, you can simple add one blank single space. Make
sure your line spacing is set at â??single,â? not â??multipleâ? or â??exactly.â?
ï?·
Set your margins for 1.13�.
When I open your file, the first thing Iâ??ll check is whether your margins are set for 1.13â?.
ï?·
Do not indent memo paragraphs; separate them with one single space.
Also, be sure not to justify your right marginâ??that is, keep the right margin jagged, not flush to
the margin as we do on the left.
ï?·
Paragraphs must run between 8-9 lines each.
The topic sentence of each paragraph will run no longer than the first full line. After that, youâ??ve
got 7-8 lines to support that topic sentence. If you split a paragraph with two functions or two
pieces of information, balance those aspects evenly. Do not, for example, spend six lines developing one example, then casually toss in another 1-line example. If you bring something up, you
must discuss how it applies and supports your position.
ï?·
Include a clear thesis statement at the end of the intro (1 full line max).
Your thesis statement will come at the end of the second introductory paragraph, right after your
summary of the novelâ??s plot. Keep the thesis short. Simply mention the criticsâ?? points collectively, then add your position in response. Your thesis might begin on one line and continue to the
next, but donâ??t let your thesis on the second line run past the point where it begins on the first
line.
ï?·
Include a clear restated thesis at the start of the conclusion (1 line across max).
As stated above, be sure that you do not simply repeat your thesis. The point here is to give your
reader another way to consider and understand your main point. Remember that this restated
thesis is also a topic sentence, so limit it to one line across the page.
ï?·
Underline both theses for easy identification.
Let me stress that underlining theses is not necessary in most case. I ask you to do so to help me
easily identify where youâ??ve placed the theses, to see if you are following directions. In the
future, when youâ??re asked to write a paper for a class, do not feel obliged to underline the theses
statements. Odds are no one will ever ask you to do that again.
ï?·
Begin each paragraph with a clear and simple topic sentence (1 line across max).
Keep them simple and keep them short. Never quote anything in a topic sentence. Just lay out
the main point and leave quoting for the rest of the paragraph.
ï?·
When introducing a review, correctly list the criticâ??s name and their critical point.
In the first of each pair of body paragraphs, when you introduce the critical point from one of the
reviews, you must identify the source of that critical point. If you know the authorâ??s name, be
sure to provide it in the topic sentence. If no author is credited, be sure to at least mention the
place of publication, such as Newsweek.
In this case, also include the title of the review in the first supporting sentence. If you donâ??t
include the title of the review, youâ??ll have to include the first main word from the title in
quotation marks in your parenthetical citation. For example, if the article was titled â??The Best of
Hemingway,â? your citation would be (â??Bestâ? 5). In any event, be sure to limit the topic sentence
to one line max across the page.
ï?·
Include in each body paragraph at least one short blended quote from the book.
This essay will be your last chance to demonstrate that you understand the concept of blending
short quoted snippets into your own sentences. Avoid both long and floating quotes. Blend in
short phrases, and be sure to place parenthetical citations at the end of a clause or the end of a
section that summarizes your example. A citation suggests that whatever comes immediately
before it was from a particular part of an outside source.
ï?·
All quotes must be clearly and correctly cited.
Again, this will be your last chance to demonstrate that you have gained this skill.
ï?·
Do not title your memo essay
Just skip two single spaces after the memo heading and begin your first paragraph.
ï?·
Do not use any form of the word you â?? not even in a quote.
This may sound like a picky restriction, but it serves two purposes: The first is that, in academic
writing, we typically avoid the use of the second person you. Writers may refer to themselves in
the first person, using the pronouns I and me. But most academic writing is in the third person,
using the pronouns he and she and him and her. So this restriction helps accustom you to
academic writing.
Also, by directing you not to use the word you, not even in a quote, I can see how well you edit
and revise your work. If there are lots of yous in your essay, itâ??s obvious that you skimped on
revisionâ??or that you just wonâ??t follow instructions. Either way, itâ??s an easy ding; so edit and
revise carefully to eliminate all forms of you. As far as quoting goes, eliminating you will help you
practice paraphrasing and blending snippets into your own sentences.
ï?·
Do not use verbs in command/imperative form.
Commands/imperatives are just more subtle ways of using you. In these cases, the you is left
out. Saying â??Sit down!â? is really saying â??You, sit down!â? Commands are always made to the
second person. Therefore, avoiding them helps avoid direct references to the reader.
ï?·
ï?·
Use 12-point Times New Roman font.
Edit & revise carefully â?? Proofread!
Be sure to review your past memo essays, especially the ones that I have marked, and review
your surface errorsâ??that is, punctuation, grammar and spelling. Youâ??ll want to avoid those same
errors in this final essay so that you can demonstrate youâ??ve gained the skill to recognize and
correct them.
ï?·
Include a single-spaced memo heading at the top of your essay.
Be sure to hit the Tab key after you type the initial colons.
ï?·
Skip two single spaces after the memo heading; omit a title.
Notice that you are now asked to skip two spaces after the memo heading, so please do so. All
too often, students skip over these little details, which wind up costing points off their grades.
Skipping them suggests to the reader that you either read too fast or do not consider details
important. That undermines your ethos. And again, no title for this essay.
ï?·
Follow all memo guidelines as explained in the class syllabus.
Due Dates
The final draft is on Tuesday, May 15.
Again: This is your last chance to demonstrate all youâ??ve learned. Be sure to manage your time
while writing this essay, and be sure to edit and revise thoroughly. Go for it!
PS: I forgot to mention
Include a Bibliography
Include a bibliography on its own page at the end of your essay. Follow all the format guidelines
explained in Module 13. Include on your bibliography: the novel, the three critical reviews I
provided, plus any critical review that you use from your Module 12 research. There will be at
least four items on that bibliography, as many as seven.
Early Draft Due on Thursday, May 10: Read Carefully.
In order to discourage you from starting your essay at the last minute, an early draft of this essay,
if only a Bangout draft, will be due on Thursday, May 10. This draft does not have to be perfect,
