Question: Write the the question you have been assigned
or the prompt you are going to answer with your essay in the box below.
The thesis statement is a preliminary answer to the research question you have posed. A strong introductory thesis statement, followed by thorough research in the body of the paper, should convince the reader that you are, indeed, addressing and resolving a pertinent research question. The strategic restatement of the thesis statement in the conclusion should carry a convincing rhetorical effect to the reader that your research problem has been resolved.
This final thesis statement presents an interpretation of a literary work based on an analysis of its content. Of course, for the essay itself to be successful, you must now present evidence from the novel that will convince the reader of your interpretation.

A strong thesis statement is the foundation of an interesting, well-researched paper. A paper without a central claim to control the content and direction will leave the reader (and your teacher!) confused and unconvinced. Your thesis statement functions to capture the attention of the reader, provide information about the purpose and content of the paper, and to establish your stance on the subject as the author.
