The first essay is an exercise in close reading and is not required to have the usual formal elements (thesis statement, introduction, conclusion). Rather, you will select one of Layli Long Soldier’s poems to analyze in greater depth.
Choose a few key moments in the poem to focus your analysis. You may choose to draw on the related scholarly texts to help in developing your interpretations.
Think about the following: How does this line/passage relate to the larger text? Does the passage engage questions, issues or themes that are important to the broader work? Your goal is to work on supporting your claims with textual evidence.
