READ THE BOOK "the member of the wedding" by c. mccullers

This is the English literature class 

 

you can't summarize the plot of the book, and you can't say something that any reader--like one who read the book last night, after drinking two beers--would already know.  ideas like this would be:  frankie is troubled.  or:  frankie is lonely.  or:  frankie wants to be a member of a group.  we know this.


that being said, you don't have to come up with something that NO ONE has EVER thought of before about the book.  you just have to say something interesting about it, and then point out some places in the text that show / suggest / imply / illustrate your interesting thought.  for example--

a lot of you seem to be writing about the three names thing--how frankie changes her name to f. jasmine, and then to her given name, frances.  okay, that's sort of interesting.  that's something a reader probably noticed when he read it, but something that he didn't think too much about.  the 'f. jasmine' change is talked about by the narrator, but the change to frances is not talked about.  'that was odd,' the reader may have thought, when he read it.  'i wonder why that change was not talked about.'

so, for your thesis, you could teach this reader something (the point of all literary paper theses).  you could say that in the book frankie goes through some changes (this is something that the reader already knows), and that we can really understand these changes if we look at the name changes.  in other words, the name changes really illustrate / symbolize / represent the changes frankie is going through.  

then, for your body paragraphs, you could look at the different names and explain what each one symbolizes / represents / shows us.  and you could then show the reader how that name is particularly appropriate for frankie at her various stages--by using examples (and short quotes, with page numbers) from the text.  this is where the analysis comes in.  you bring up scenes in the book, and dialog, and description, but you don't summarize them; rather, you use them to show the reader how your thesis (your interesting idea about the text) is correct.
