***I need REVISIONS on this Literary Analysis Essay on the book, “I, Robot”
Attached is the Essay along with the Essay with the Professor’s comments on it. Refer to the professor’s comments and make sure the paper is NOT EXPLAINING the book but examining ONE aspect of the text and supporting it with analysis.***
A Literary Analysis Essay Is:
- Focused on one topic or theme or symbol(s) or development, and so on.
- For our purposes, it will be interpretive in nature (This is NOT a book review. Instead, you will examine an aspect of the text and support your analysis/interpretation of it.)
- Is supported by:
- textual examples
- outside sources (cited, of course)
- It examines the text, although for some analyses, you may also examine the author or the culture/time period of the author.
- It may consider any/all of the following:
- structure, plot
- style, tone, language
- symbols, allegories, allusions
Remember that this type of essay is different from the previous one. In a exemplification essay, we have an emphasis on evidence (along with explanations of that evidence). In a literary analysis essay, the emphasis is reversed. You certainly have textual evidence, but the emphasis is on your analysis — your thoughts, insights, perceptions. You need to give judgment and show not only what you think but why you think that. You might want to include outside sources (other expert opinions), but those other opinions should not dominate nor overshadow your text — your own well-supported interpretations.
