Consider what one or two essays suggest or argue about a larger societal issue such as relationships, gender roles, identity politics, integration, marginalization, animal/nature/human conflict – to name a few. You may come up with your own societal issue as long as the readings can support your idea. Choose one or two of the non – fiction pieces that we have read in class so far, and write an essay offering an original thesis and analysis of the issue you select. As a reminder this is a formal literary essay to be written in third person, using supporting quotes from the reading(s) as evidence. There should be no personal narrative in this type of essay.
