If you need assistance with writing your essay, our professional Essay Writing Service is here to help!
Context: You have just completed an informative report essay which required you to closely examine and research an important topic of discussion within your field of study. Before that, you wrote a visual text analysis essay that required you to closely examine and analyze the rhetorical elements within images. Now, for your third writing project, you will be closely examining and analyzing a literary text, specifically Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.
Purpose: The purpose of this writing project is to help you develop and expand your critical thinking, reading and writing skills even more as you closely study and analyze a literary text. Throughout the writing process you will learn and practice reading and writing strategies that lead to a solid understanding of the text and its relevance in society. The skills you develop with this project will increase your ability to think critically and better understand many other kinds of texts as well, including political, informative, argumentative, etc.
Objective: You will choose a topic related to Alice in Wonderland; a topic that allows you to participate in a broader academic conversation. Your participation in the conversation means that you will be making an argument about some aspect of the text that you believe is important or especially interesting. You will support your argument with evidence from the text in Alice in Wonderland and from other secondary sources.
Suggestions: Consider the following questions: Is there a compelling theme or subject ⸺such as power, order/chaos, time, curiosity, sanity, identity, education, childhood, logic, word-play, etc. ⸺that is prevalent in the story? Why does it stand out to you? Why is this topic important and/or relevant to society? Is there a particular writing style that Carroll uses that you believe is especially effective (or not effective) in making the story more engaging? How well does the story match with your perceptions of modern family, school, and social life? What was Lewis Carroll’s background, and how did his life shape his writing? Once you have decided on a topic, reread the stories and do research to start gathering evidence that will support your argument.
