ENGL 1302 Essay #3 Instruction: Literary AnalysisWord Count: 800 (+) / Honors: 1,000 (+)MLA FormatThis assignment asks you to offer an interpretation of a single piece or collection of fictional literature.  Like any essay, you should frame and formulate a thesis in your introductory paragraph and spend the majority of your essay proving the truth of your central claim.  Unlike the previous essays, however, you are not engaging in argument for or against another’s claims; rather, you must offer an original interpretation of a work of fiction.  Your thesis should center on a single claim concerning the work or works you are interpreting.If you are focusing on a single text, this assignment can be completed in several ways:If you are comparing multiple texts, there are a few options:1.         One’s thesis should center on a single element or idea contained in the primary text that is strengthened/proved through presenting that idea in light of others.  For example, I might read Heinrich Böll’s Billiards at Half-Past Nine through the lens of his wartime story “Trapped in Paris” and conclude, “Through reading Billiards in light of Böll’s early story “Trapped in Paris,” I interpret the novel as indicating a sense of amor fati as shown in the tragedies that befall the central characters.”  The remainder of my essay would focus on examining the tragedies that befall the main characters in Billiards and interpreting them in a similar way that I would interpret “Trapped in Paris.”2.         One should note a common thread among multiple texts, and one’s thesis, therefore, should be based on something that must be proven through a combining of the ideas contained therein.For example, I might have this thesis: “Through a combination of the ideas in Mann’s The Magic Mountain, Doktor Faustus, and Buddenbrooks, we find the true soul of the German artist as one trapped between life and death.”  The remainder of my essay would focus on showing the different aspects of the German artist as similarly given in all three of the texts.Hints:
