Why do we bother writing Literary Essays?

 

We write essays to:

 

  • prove our point of view;
  • make and support an argument;
  • investigate a specific theme or idea in a novel or text.

 

To write an essay you need to:

  • read your assigned text(s);
  • take notes;
  • take more notes;
  • organize your notes into categories (such as themes, symbols, writing style, etc.)
  • decide what arguments you want to make;
  • organize your notes into the order you are going to argue your points;
  • write your thesis;
  • select the passages or citations that you are going to use to prove your thesis;
  • write a draft;
  • revise;
  • revise again;
  • publish.
