Here are some possible essay themes:
Justice and Injustice
Innocence and Guilt
Self-esteem and Self-abasement
Choose one theme to pursue. You are allowed to come up with your own, although I would like you to clear it with me first. Essays should be around six pages (not including the title page or bibliography).The themes are broad, but part of the assignment involves your coming up with a clear and effective thesis or argument about your theme in relation to The Trial. Your essay should have an introductory paragraph that closes with a proper and specific thesis statement, paragraphs organized around topics that reinforce your thesis, and a strong concluding paragraph.
For this essay I want you to use at least four critical resources, so check with the library to find the most appropriate books and/or articles. For books, the website Novanet provides a complete listing of all books and journals held by universities in Nova Scotia.For articles, the website JSTOR provides thousands of articles on numerous subjects. Note:Internet sources such as Wikipedia, Douban, SparkNotes, and CliffsNotes are not critical sources.Please ask me if you have any questions about the validity of a source.
