Literary Essay about short story Oh Xiangxue by Tie Ning
I would like to use the Thematic analysis method or Character analysis method in the essay. Detail for the methods as below:
a.) Thematic analysis: For this type of essay, your thesis will hypothesize what you consider to be the theme/meaning/message of the story and the body paragraphs of your essay will focus on supporting material that supports your thesis about the theme.
b.) Character analysis: This type of essay will develop an analytical perspective (your opinion(s) about the personality and actions of the story's main character (or possibly two or three characters, if their actions are closely intertwined). The purpose of this type of essay is help the reader of your essay better understand why the character(s) behaved as they did; how were they changed by their actions or events of the story; what lessons did the character or the reader (or both) learn from the actions and events of the story.
