Your research paper should be an argumentative essay that makes a specific claim about the reading “ A Rose for Emily” By William Faulkner.
Organize your argument to maximize its effectiveness. Your introduction should include a thesis. Each paragraph of your paper should include a topic sentence that references your thesis.
Each sentence in each paragraph should directly support that paragraph’s topic sentence. Avoid unnecessary plot summary and biographical information.
Assume that your reader has already read the work you are discussing, and assume that your reader knows important information about the author’s life already.
Make sure your thesis is an arguable one, something that readers might actually agree or disagree with
Don’t be afraid to take a leap and put forward a new, creative, and/or unique interpretation. Remember that any argument should be properly supported with reasonable textual evidence.
