ENG 232 Thematic Explication Paper (3-5 pages, not including works cited) Due August 2nd
Theme: “a unifying or dominant idea, motif, etc.” A theme is not necessarily a moral of story. For a story like “Chickamauga,” a theme might simply be stated, “War causes unanticipated collateral damage, claiming even the lives of non-combatants.” This is not a moral, but it is a theme. Make sure your chosen theme is fully articulated. If it is one or two words in length, you are not capturing the whole idea/point being made in the story.
For this paper, you are required to choose any text that we have covered this semester. It will be your responsibility to write a 3-5 page paper that incorporates two scholarly secondary sources and explains and analyzes how a theme is presented in your chosen text. *Note: There are oftentimes multiple themes in a single text* For the purposes of the paper, you will explain how the author presents this theme using textual evidence from the story/text you selected and support from the secondary sources. For instance, if you chose “The War Prayer” by Twain, you might write about how warmongering can easily cause people to ignore the realities of warfare. Here is an example outline that could be used for an explication paper:
I. Intro – Introduce the text you will be discussing by explaining who wrote it, what time period it is from, and any relevant biographical information about the author (for instance, Hemingway’s own experience in WWI would be relevant in a discussion of “Soldier’s Home.”) Thesis: Clearly state what theme you will be explaining and discussing in your paper.
II. Explain how this theme is presented within the text you chose. Use textual evidence by quoting passages from the story that show the author’s use of this theme. This section should likely be multiple paragraphs.
III. Explain how this text’s theme relates to other texts’ themes. Does it align with/contradict other themes we have encountered?
IV. Conclusion – Close with comments about how the theme affects the reading of this story / how it enhances the efficacy of the story
You may choose to organize your paper in a different way. The primary objectives of this paper remain the same: clearly articulate a theme of a work, explain how the author presents that theme in particular passages, and explain how that theme is echoed or contradicted in other texts.
The following rubric will be used to grade your final publish of the assignment. Check your work against the rubric before submitting.
Focus/Thesis: The entire essay is focused and cohesive. The thesis is clear and central to the focus of the rest of the essay. 20%
Evidence/Detail/Content: The author provides a sound thematic analysis and avoids summarizing the literature. The introduction has a hook and thesis. The body paragraphs support the thesis and provide details. Each paragraph has a topic sentence. The conclusion answers the “so what?” 50%
Organization: The essay’s structure makes sense, and the author leads the reader from one idea to another. There are smooth transitions between and within paragraphs. The author makes logical connections between ideas. The author uses the literature’s plot as needed but does not rely on the plot for the structure. 10%
MLA Formatting & Documentation: The author correctly cites paraphrases and quotations in MLA style. All pages (including the works cited) are correctly formatted in MLA style. 15%
Grammar/Mechanics: There are no grammatical or mechanical errors. The essay’s punctuation and spelling are correct. The essay shows evidence of careful editing. The author’s style and voice are lively and engaging. 5%
*Please refer to the resources in Moodle that discuss theme

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
