Choose just ONE of the stories we read by Bierce, Gilman, Ellison, or Walker. Write an essay that critically analyzes the storys deeper theme AND explains the storys conclusion. According to your interpretation, what is the deeper meaning of the story? Make sure you dont simply summarize the storys plot or retell the entire story. Imagine your highly intelligent friends read the story but did not understand anything but the basics of the plot. Draw their attention to important textual details and provide a clear and smart explanation of what the author was trying to say by writing this story. Important things happen in the conclusion of each story, so also make sure you spend at least a paragraph explaining the ending. A good place to start is to write a thesis sentence that directly makes an argument about the storys deeper meaning.
