Now that you have observed the attributes of the characters in the short stories “A&P” and “Greasy Lake,” write a character-analysis essay in which you analyze one major or minor character from any short story in Chapter 21: “Fiction for further reading.”  Use specific language from Chapters 14 and 17 when crafting your analysis. What “type” of character are you analyzing?  How are language and the style/tone of the story used to formulate the character?  Is the story reflective of the character, or the character of the story? How would a reader from another country or culture potential draw different conclusions about the characters in these stories? Your response should be 3-4 pages.

  • Have a strong thesis statement at the end of your introduction paragraph.
  • Use a “hook” in the introduction paragraph to grab your readers’ attention.
  • Use specific textual support from the short story in the body of your paper.
  • Finish with a strong conclusion that summarizes your main points, restates the thesis in some way, and possibly returns to the initial “hook.”
  • Proofread for errors in spelling, grammar, and writing mechanics. Vary sentence structure and sentence length to add interest.
  • Follow APA guidelines with regard to font style, size, margins, and spacing. For specific information, go to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.
  • Use APA when citing the text; include a reference page citation at the end of the paper for the short story in the anthology. See the tutorial in Module 1 or consult CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements (used for this class).
  • If you have questions about citing in APA, contact the CSU-Global Librarian at library@csuglobal.edu.
