Develop a thesis statement that provides a blueprint

Develop a thesis statement that provides a blueprint

Write a paper in which you argue for your interpretation of the following poems, in terms of imagery, metaphor, and/or themes.

– Yusef Komunyakaa, “Blackberries”
– The idea behind critical analysis of literature is to write an essay that explains how a work makes use of images, employs metaphors, or demonstrates its themes. Develop a thesis (with three major points) in which you state your interpretation of the poem, and then in the body paragraphs argue for your belief (and provide support from the poem itself). Your support for your argument should come from the poem itself-and that means you should quote often from the poem. However, quoting from the poem does NOT mean quoting entire stanzas; quotations should be sprinkled through your discussion (individual words, phrases, and occasional lines). Quote what is significant. Length: 500 words (12-point font, double-spaced, 1″ margins) Support: Quote liberally from the poem to illustrate your statements. Quoting from a poem:
– When quoting 2-3 lines of poetry, use the slash to separate lines.
– Long quotes (4 lines or more) should be blocked (indented)-and those passages should appear just as in the text. Omit quote marks ONLY when blocking a quote. Sources: The poem you are analyzing should be your ONLY source for this paper. MLA Documentation:
– After quoting from a poem, provide a parenthetical citation (citing the line numbers).
– Additionally, provide a works cited page; see the OWL at Purdue site online. Proofread your paper carefully and correct errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, and sentences. Make sure poem titles are always in quote marks. Also, your paper will need a title.

Review of the 500-word theme:
I. Paragraph I-Introduction-100-125 words (or 5-12 sentences)
– Lead-in (mention the title of the work, the author’s name, and the date of composition)
– Provide a brief synopsis (2-3 sentences, with the gist of the work)
– Thesis statement-list the points to be developed in the body of the paper (three aspects of the poem, perhaps related to meaning or images or symbols)
II. Paragraph 2-First Body Paragraph-100-125 words (or 5-12 sentences)
– Follow the topic sentence with support-and in a literary analysis, that means quotations, quotations, quotations!
III. Paragraph 3-Second Body Paragraph-100-125 words (or 5-12 sentences)
– Follow the topic sentence with support-and in a literary analysis, that means quotations, quotations, quotations!
IV. Paragraph 4-Third Body Paragraph-100-125 words (or 5-12 sentences)
– Follow the topic sentence with support-and in a literary analysis, that means quotations, quotations, quotations!
V. Paragraph 5-The Conclusion-100-125 words (or 5-12 sentences)
– Mirror the introduction-restate the thesis, restate the major points without being repetitive
– End with an important thought, a provocative idea, a quote

Thesis Statements: You are responsible for finding your own thesis statement, which is the focus of the paper. To do this, you need to read the poem several times, annotate in the margins (look for patterns, repetitions, make comments), do some thinking and prewriting in which you explore the complexities and issues in the poem, consider the writer’s intentions, and then choose your own narrowed approach.

Develop a thesis statement that provides a blueprint for your paper, listing three major points you hope to illustrate-each major point to be developed in a body paragraph. Each body paragraph should have a topic sentence and several example sentences-and in a literary analysis, quotations from the work of literature are the examples.
