Thesis Statements for Three Short Stories.
Choose at least three assigned short stories from the Topic 2 Readings and attempt to develop a narrow, assertive thesis statement for each story (for a total of three thesis statements).
For each story chosen, do the following:
- State your chosen topic (see The Story and Its Writer, Appendix 4).
- Explain the story’s theme (see The Story and Its Writer, Appendix 4).
- Write one paragraph in which you analyze the relationship between the stated topic and the stated theme (see The Story and Its Writer, Appendix 4).
- Develop your final thesis statement for the story, based on your analysis of the topic and theme. Review The Story and Its Writer “Writing about Short Stories” and the Topic 2 Lecture to make sure that your thesis is sufficiently narrow, assertive, and unique.
