One of the greatest challenges as a literature student is to produce essays with
. astute observations,
. insightful commentaries, and
. in-depth analyses,
regardless of subject matter, whether it is style, tone, voice, diction and language,
or theme, character and dramatic development.
The trick? Steer clear of those easy lapses into pure narration, which is essentially your Evidence, the second “E” in PEEL*, the essay-writing framework loved and used by many in schools.
Learn how to cultivate a spirit of enquiry and the finer skill of quoting. We’ll also be reading excerpts of review-type pieces from The New York Times, and conclude with a study of an essay crafted the way you’d like yours to be written.
