The Thesis Statement in the Analytical Essay

When you analyze literature, you evaluate an idea, judge an author’s work, respond to, and describe the author’s use of language, elements and devices. You present this analysis to a specific audience — usually your English teacher.

Your essay should, in more detail than in quick-write analyses and freewrites, address what you write in your thesis statement. Some recommend that the thesis statement be written toward the end of your first paragraph.
