Write a 1,250-word (five-page) paper of the book “Black Boy” with your own original thesis. What is the author saying/how are they saying it? Is the author using symbols, metaphors and/or other literary means — OR — if the author’s work is theoretical/expository, how does it apply to the contemporary world? Sum up your thesis in a paragraph or two.
The body of your paper is the longest part, in which you should include 3 quotations from the primary text you’re analyzing to develop and nuance your idea/thesis. The conclusion should synthesize your thesis with the body of your paper and state something new — not a brand new thesis, but a more complete one than would have been possible before you completed the thesis/body synthesis.
