Write an essay (4-5 pages including works cited page) in which you analyze the theme of “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” by Joyce Carol Oates.
For a Theme analysis essay, you must:
-Make sure the essay is in the present tense (all literary analysis is written in the present tense regardless of the tense of the story)
-Make sure your introduction begins with a hook, reveals the author’s full name and title of the story, and provides a brief summary of the story
-Place your thesis/theme statement at the end of the introductory paragraph(last sentence)Make sure each body paragraph has a topic sentence that supports the corresponding part of the thesis
-Use specific examples and quotes from the text to support your assertions
-Explain each of your examples with analysis as to how the example supports the thesis/topic sentences
-Provide transitions between and within paragraphs
-Proofread carefully for gramma and sentence errors; clarity is a part of the grade
-Use the MLA format for writing essays and include both in-text citations and a works cited page for the paper.
