The Divine Comedy By Dante Alighieri, Trans. Allen Mandelbaum

For this assignment, you will write a 4-6 page literary analysis essay which critiques one of the texts from the second half of the semester, that we have read in class. The essay should develop around a strong thesis statement (that is, an assertion of an original idea about the meaning of the text) and be supported by examples from the text. The questions connected to the critical theories we discussed in class may help guide you towards an answer that can become your thesis statement, but you may also approach the essay via a more familiar method.

For example, you may select a topic/subject(s) that recurs in the text and analyze appearances of it throughout the text in order to arrive at a thesis which asserts the message (ie. theme) you think the text is sending about that subject(s). You may also choose a character and analyze his/her development over the course of the text in order to arrive at a thesis statement which asserts an important change in the character and why it matters.
Must include:

an introduction with thesis statement;
supporting body paragraphs which each assert a clear and unique point of their own and include correctly cited textual evidence either in the form of quotation, summary, or paraphrase;
conclusion which reviews points and either clarifies or universalizes the significance of the thesis or both.
