Research Question: How does what you wear affect your ability to persuade.
Analysis: plan on conducting research to analyze how what you are wearing affects your ability to persuade an audience. I think it is obvious that what you wear gives keys to the speakers credibility, but I would like to see if that is directly related to how well their message is able to be received. Similar to how choice of words can influence how effective persuasive methods are, I propose that attire has an affect as well.
This essay, like the previous one, should be thesis-driven,meaning that you should posit an argumentative thesis that will enlighten the reader as to the possible meanings of the text. Position your thesis at the end of your introductory paragraph, and aim to prove your thesis statement throughout the body of your essay in terms of several major points. Each body paragraph should have a clear topic sentence that directly relates to your thesis statement, and within each body paragraph you should provide textual evidence (short quotes and examples) from your primary source to support what you have to say. Through close reading, you will demonstrate how this textual evidence helps you to prove your point. Avoid over-summarizing. Assume your audience is familiar with the story. You will also use research to help prove your points regarding the text. All research must concentrate on the primary text, not the author’s life. Demonstrate throughout the paper why your point is relevant and how it helps us achieve a greater understanding of the work in question. The most successful papers will be both well-shaped and fully developed. They will also come to a thoughtful conclusion.

Choose one of these topics:
1. The ironic friendships of More with Rich, Henry, and Norfolk:
Body paragraph 1: Discuss evidence that More’s refusal to help Rich advance in a political career, which Rich implies is unfriendliness, is based on concern for Rich’s wellbeing. Include evidence that More has real affection for Rich, whereas Rich is revealed to be no friend to More at all.
Body paragraph 2: Discuss evidence that despite Henry’s implications that it is unfriendly, More’s refusal to forsake his conscience in regards to Henry’s divorce shows true friendship. Include evidence that More has real affection for Henry, whereas Henry’s professions of friendship to More are largely self-interest.
Body paragraph 3: Discuss evidence that More’s harsh severance of friendship with Norfolk is itself an expression of friendship. Include the contrast that despite Norfolk accusing More of unfriendliness for not taking the oath, it is Norfolk who proves the worse friend.
2. The words and actions of More in the play that reveal that an upright conscience is greater than any earthly good, even life itself:
Discuss one of the following: either (1) How More gives up increasingly weightier goods as he remains loyal to his conscience: the esteem of colleagues and his high office; the understanding of friends and comfort of family; and his liberty and nally his life; or (2) the reasons he gives in his conversations with Wolsey and Henry, Alice and Margaret, and Norfolk for why he values an upright conscience as the highest good in earthly life.
3. The inverse (or contrasting) parallel between Rich and More and how their contrast structures the plot of the play:
Discuss how their contrast begins in their very first conversation; how the contrast only widens as time goes on; how More declines in gradual steps in his conditions in life but rises in virtue, and how Rich rises in steps in his conditions in life but falls into vice.
