Essay grades will reflect your understanding of the material, the level of critical analysis, logical
reasoning, supportive evidence using appropriate citations and relevant details, clarity of the
thesis statement, the logical construction of paragraphs, your use of transitions, and the
effectiveness of your conclusions. Essays should be relatively free of errors in grammar,
punctuation, and spelling. The best essays will consider the literary qualities of a text, and will
resist reducing literary texts to the ideas they contain.
What is a close reading of two texts?
A close reading of two texts is an interpretation of the observations you make as you read, view, or experience two texts in light of each other. It involves three main components:
A thesis that compares and contrasts the meaning and function of two texts. It must be something you can argue for and prove in your essay. The thesis should be both precise and controversial.
Evidence from the texts. What specific words or phrases or what specific scenes or images led you to have the ideas you express?
Quote/describe them. Analysis of that evidence. Explain how you arrived at your thesis.
