Choose ONE of the following essay prompts and write a 1200-word critical essay (3-4 pages double spaced). This is a short essay, so try to be as concise and thorough as you can be in the space given—in other words, avoid wordiness: words, phrases or sentences that really don’t add meaning to your paper, just length.  Your essay should focus on a specific idea about the text. Structure your essay around a thesis to prove your argument and support it with evidence from the book. You must have a minimum of three quotes from the book to support your argument. This essay is worth 150 points.

 

 

  1. In Life of Pi, Yann Martel makes constant references to religion. After reading this novel, you should have a good understanding of Martel’s views. Do you think Martel is religious or do you think he is an atheist? (Obviously he is not an agnostic.)

 

  1. In Life of Pi, Martel makes extensive use of storytelling to describe his beliefs about religion. Consider why Martel even told this story. Think about the relationship between storytelling and religion. Why does Martel uses storytelling to describe his beliefs about religion?

 

  1. Think about the following term that Martel refers to:

 

  • Anthropomorphism is the act of giving inanimate/nonliving objects, animals, or natural phenomena human qualities, motivation, characteristics, and/or behavior.

 

     Imagine yourself as Pi. Why might a person like Pi anthropomorphize animals and give them human qualities?



Structure of the essay:

 

  • Make sure to have an introductory paragraph. In your introductory paragraph, please include a thesis that has a claim and a reason. In your final draft, use a pen and underline it.

  • In each of your paragraphs in the body section of your essay, you should have one main idea or your topic sentence, some evidence either like a paraphrase or quote that is integrated into a sentence, and some analysis which explains the significance of your main point and its relationship with the evidence

    • Underline your topic sentence. Double underline or use a highlighter to show your analysis.

  • You should also have a conclusion that wraps up the paper.

 

 

Additional notes:

  • You must staple your draft(s) behind your final essay.

  • Your essay must be in MLA format.
