Project #71164 - Of Mice and Men

Words from my teacher

 

Your essay assignment will be to analyze the novel through the lense of ONE of these critical theories. It is a critical analysis of the work from a particular theoretical perspective. You are not writing about a specific theory; you are, instead, applying that theory to Of Mice and Men. Consequently, you do not have to explain or summarize the theory you are using any more than you would summarize the plot of a story you are writing about. You can assume I understand the theory you are applying =.

 

Also, you do need to apply a theory to the entire work, though you can if you wish. You may be better off narrowing your focus, however, so that you analyze one particular character, or relationship, or passage, or incident in detail. Like all essays, your paper should be a thesis driven with a sufficient amount of textual evidence to support your claim.

 

There are many ways to approach such an assignment. You might have a question about the novel and wish to see if you can work that question out by looking at the work through a particular theoretical lens. Or, you may prefer to think about a specific theoretical concept and then re-read a work with that concept in mind. The point of the assignment is for you to see a work in a new way using a  theoretical perspective different from the one you might ordinarily use. What do you see in this work through this theoretical lens and, of course, why?
