Essay #2 is a research essay. that means it requires you to engage with other critical writing on the text you are discussing in your essay. In essence, what you are doing in this essay in entering into a discussion or debate about the text and situating yourself in that debate. In the introduction, you devote the first few sentences to introducing the short story and its main themes. You then devote 1-2 sentences to the scholarly article under analysis, stating what it is about in general. You conclude your introductory paragraph with your main thesis statement which should include your own original idea about the short story. In the body of the essay, you devote each body paragraph to a separate point of your argument. In each paragraph, you need to provide evidence/examples for your argument from the primary text (the short story) and secondary source (the article). So basically you only use relevant points from the articles to back your own arguments. In the conclusion, you summarize everything you mentioned earlier.
