Identify a thematic inquiry in Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston and James Houston’s memoir Farewell to Manzanar, and write an interpretive argument. Use evidence in the form of quotations and analysis to support your interpretation. Rather than a summary, your essay should be an analytical response that shows your readers–your professor and classmates–where and how the text of the novel supports your interpretation by using & analyzing quotations from the text. Your task is not to discover the “right” way to interpret the text, but to explain your way of reading some thematic aspect of it.
Organization and Support
In the introduction to your essay, describe the thematic inquiry you will put to the text, as well as why this inquiry is worth addressing (why it is significant). Then present your thesis: the claim you are making about the text and the reasons that support it.
In the body of your paper, explain your own interpretation of this topic/question using reasons that support your thesis. This analysis should go beyond what we have discussed in class. Concentrate on showing your reader how you arrived at your interpretation (through your own analysis of the text) and why your interpretation is important. Use details (in the form of quotations) from the literary text for support.
In the conclusion, do not only recap your main points, but also put your analysis in a larger context by explaining what is important about your interpretation. In other words, if no where else in your paper, your conclusion should address the question “So what?” Also, don’t forget to give your paper an interesting title.
