For your paper you will be required to write an essay at least

4 pages long


the fiction novel you’ve completed to craft a persuasive argument.

You will analyze the

Stephen King’s text, The Outsider


and argue what you believe the book’s central

theme is. What lesson or message does the book teach readers? How do the

elements of plot, character, setting, dialogue, point of view help support the theme?

Your essay needs to be clear and unified under your thesis.

Make sure to include

specific evidence from the book, to show how and why your evidence supports

your thesis.

Since this is a shorter paper, focus on the most convincing evidence. Your essay

should demonstrate your understanding of the text, and your ability to identify the theme using

support chosen from either characterization, setting, dialogue, or plot.

Use your own original ideas about the book in conjunction with evidence from the text to

support your thesis. Make sure to follow proper MLA citation rules for all quotes and

paraphrases you use.
