If possible I would like the paper to be around mourning someone “too much” since at the time it went against God’s will (because God’s will was for a person to die).
At the end of the introduction, place the thesis statement. Then have each body paragraph start with a topic sentence that makes a claim that is supported with evidence from the reading. Paraphrase and quote as necessary, using in-text citations according to MLA style. Place the bibliography on a separate page after the last page of the essay.
【I need a about 300 words introduction paragraph with the thesis statement at the end of it. Please try your best to give me an outline of my research essay】
【like the instruction says, I’ve submitted my summaries of the three articles to the prof. So please check out my summaries (each 200 words), and write the introduction paragraph based on these three articles. I could hardly change the chosen articles since the prof has seen them. 】
【the topic I’ve chosen】Shakespeare’s heroes have plans—Richard II, Richard III, and Leontes plan to rule their kingdoms in peace, Romeo and Othello plan to love their wives, Lear to retire into the care of his daughter, Hamlet to succeed his father as King of Denmark. None is able to make the plan work, in large part because of other decisions and actions of their own that flow from the nature of their characters. Choosing three plays, consider how the three are tragedies of character.
【This is the prof’s requirements of the summary】
In preparing to write this essay, you first need to find the three articles you will cite. Then write 200-word summaries of these pieces and send them to me by email by March 11. In writing these summaries indicate each author’s argument, theoretical approach, strengths and weaknesses. Finally, say what influence each article or chapter has had in your shaping your own thesis.
I did have some ideas about how to form my argument in this summary file, but I am really confused right now. I hope you could help form a thesis about “decisions and actions of their own that flow from the nature of their characters”
Three primary sources :
