Once you have the introduction with a clear thesis statement, it won’t be that difficult for you to write the body of your paper.
You don’t necessarily have to write three paragraphs in it, but it’s the minimum number of paragraphs for an essay of 500 - 700 words.
You’ll still pay attention to those elements of the reading process, but you’ll also be analytical towards the book.
You’ll consider these elements: In most cases, professors ask you to focus on one aspect analyzing a book.
You’re allowed to share your own impressions in a literary analysis, but they have to be part of a more structured format.
Most of all, you’ll focus on the analysis of all components of the book. When you’re reading for pleasure, you’re mainly focused on emotions and visualizations of the scenes and characters.
This responsiveness had nothing to do with that flabby impressionability which is dignified under the name of the ‘creative temperament’ - it was an extraordinary gift for hope, a romantic readiness such as I have never found in any other person and which is not likely I shall ever find again.” With this quote, the author practically expressed Gatsby’s personality, so you have where to start from.
From here on, you’ll analyze the character’s personality in different scenes and you’ll describe how they are related to the description from this quote.
Others go through blogs maintained by passionate readers, and they assume that that’s the style they should follow. Plus, you’ll have to maintain an adequate style of academic writing.
You can’t write like a blogger would write, and you cannot copy Goodreads or Amazon reviews.
