QUESTION

Analysis of a Theme in a Short Story

Write an analysis of a theme in  the following short story:

Tillie Olsen, “I Stand Here Ironing” 

• Your thesis should reflect three points (aspects of theme) that you are going to focus on in your paper. Another approach to thematic analysis is to illustrate three methods by which an author develops a theme.

• Quote liberally from the short story (citing in-text, MLA style). Look up how to quote short prose passages, as well as how to block longer passages of prose. Remember to introduce each quote with an independent clause (followed by a colon); the introduction to a quote provides you with an opportunity to state an opinion and make clear why the quote is significant.

• You will need a works cited page (MLA format), in which you cite the short story.

• You are to use only TWO sources for this paper—the short story itself AND one peer-reviewed article from a scholarly database from the my school Library Databases (such as JSTOR, Academic Search Complete, or ProQuest). The article should be either a critique of the short story or a discussion of themes in the works of the writer of that short story.

The link to my school library databases will be provided below inside the zip rar along with the story and should include this citation to be placed at the end

Kirschner, Linda Heinlein. “I Stand Here Ironing by Tillie Olsen.” The English Journal, vol. 65, no. 1, 1976, pp. 58–59., www.jstor.org/stable/814700.

• Quote at least twice from the peer-reviewed article in your paper.

Length: 2-3 pages (minimum), double spaced, 12-point font, one-inch margins

composition)

• Thesis statement—list the points to be developed in the body of the paper

II. Paragraph 2—First Body Paragraph—

• Follow the topic sentence with support—and in a literary analysis, that means

quotations, quotations, quotations!

III. Paragraph 3—Second Body Paragraph-

• Follow the topic sentence with support—and in a literary analysis, that means

quotations, quotations, quotations!

IV. Paragraph 4—Third Body Paragraph

• Follow the topic sentence with support—and in a literary analysis, that means

quotations, quotations, quotations!

being repetitive
