MACBETH SYMBOLISM IN LITERATURE FQ: How can recognizing symbols and their meanings help us to support our assertions about Macbeth (The Scottish Play not character)? Do Now: Looking back at you assertion/thesis

what examples do you plan to use to support your point? Be specific and include examples (pair share) In order to write a thesis statement you must have 1)a SUBJECT (the piece of literature or some specific aspect of it) and 2)your opinion about that subject Take the SUBJECT and make an assertion about it. (What do you believe to be true?)

Because the statement is an opinion, it begs to be argued. In other words, you write your assertions about the literature and spend the rest of the essay defending Example of Thesis Sample prompt for writing a thesis statement: Read the following poem carefully. Then write an essay in which you discuss how such elements as figurative language, imagery, diction, and point of view reveal the poets

attitude toward the subject of marriage. Note: Try NOT to reword the prompt. DO answer the questions of the prompt in the thesis. Thesis 1: In George Merediths Modern Love, the poet reveals his attitude toward marriage through figurative language, imagery, and diction. 1) the SUBJECT: George Merediths Modern Love 2) the writers opinion: One of the key elements of a thesis is MISSING; there is no opinion given. This thesis simply restates the writing prompt. Thesis 2: In George Merediths Modern Love, the poets cynical attitude toward marriage is revealed through dark and ominous language.

1) the SUBJECT: George Merediths Modern Love 2) the writers opinion: The reader knows that the writer believes that the poets attitude is cynical and that the language the poet uses is dark and ominous. In order to write a thematic statement you must have 1) a SUBJECT (an abstract thematic idea) and 2) your understanding of the authors opinion on that subject Take the SUBJECT (an abstract idea)

explored in a piece of literature and make an assertion about what the author tries to convey to the reader about this subject Example of Thematic The thematic statement is best used in the conclusion to provide an overarching last thought for the audience. 1) the SUBJECT: Marriage (modern love) 2) the writers understanding of the authors opinion: George Meredith believes that marriage is an outdated

and miserable condition that can be ended only by death. (Turn the bolded part of the sentence into a thematic statement.) Thematic statement: Now write your own Thesis & Thematic Statement A symbol is an object, action, or event that represents something or that creates a range of

associations beyond itself. In literary works a symbol can express an idea, clarify meaning, or enlarge literal meaning. Select a novel or play and, focusing on one symbol, write an essay analyzing how that symbol functions in the work and what it reveals about the characters or themes of the work as a whole. Do not merely summarize the plot. Example of Thesis

Note: Try NOT to reword the prompt. DO answer the questions of the prompt in the thesis. Thesis 1: In the play Macbeth by Williams Shakespeare he utilizes Lady Macbeth as a symbol of masculinity both ironically and in efforts to establish the growing conflict of a mans fate. 1) the SUBJECT: George Merediths Modern Love 2) the writers opinion: One of the key elements of a thesis is MISSING; there is no opinion given. This thesis simply restates the writing prompt. Thesis 2: In George Merediths Modern Love, the poets cynical attitude toward marriage is revealed through dark and ominous

language. 1) the SUBJECT: George Merediths Modern Love 2) the writers opinion: The reader knows that the writer believes that the poets attitude is cynical and that the language the poet uses is dark and ominous.
