By the end of this assignment, you should be able to identify one or more themes or “great ideas” within chapter 8, 9, or 10 (pick one) of the novel. Employ the following common components for essay writing.
CONTEXT FOR WRITING
First, summarize the chapter or chapters you will use to talk about the great idea of your choice. Ideally, this would be part of your introduction. Identify and explain the theme(s) on which you will focus by naming and giving your own definition of the theme. Below are the great ideas you may discuss in your paper
Evil twisting the good
Emotion and faith
The Individual Soul
You must choose at least one of the themes referenced above, but no more than three. Whatever you choose, the theme and its connection to the text must be discussed in detail. Don’t forget to craft a clear, one-sentence thesis statement to anchor your paper in the theme(s) referenced.
To develop your essay using the level of detail needed, use quotes from The Screwtape Letters and Mere Christianity texts. Further, be sure to cite your quoted material using proper MLA in-text citation. And yes, you do need a work cited page. The only book(s) you should cite is the Screwtape Letters and, if referenced, Mere Christianity. Once you quote and cite the text, be sure to make plain how the quote relates to your thesis.
Your paper must be 2-4 full pages. Use Times New Roman, 12-point font, and 1-inch margins all around. Your paper must be double-spaced and must contain the proper heading for MLA citation. If you are not sure about formatting, look it up. Do not use a cover page.
