Research Paper Directions

Your research paper should be an argumentative essay that makes a specific claim.

The story I chose to work on is "Soldier's Home" by Ernest Hemingway. 

In "Soldier's Home" by Ernest Hemingway, the main character, Krebs, goes through some traumatic and significant experiences which cause him to return home a changed man.

Support this claim and argument in a well-developed, well-written, and well-organized essay of at least 2000 words (roughly 6-8 typed, double-spaced pages). To support your argument, incorporate quotes, summaries, or paraphrases from at least five sources accessed through scholary sources.

(I've provided the sources in an attached file)

Remember that you are a literary critic too—this means you should feel free to question and disagree with the interpretations you read.
Remember that any argument can be a good one if you properly support it with evidence from the text.
Remember that you have three methods for incorporating outside information into any paper: you can quote (use the source’s exact words), paraphrase (put the source’s words into your own words), or summarize (boil down information from a source to a 1-2 sentence summary in your own words).
-Avoid unnecessary plot summary and biographical information. Assume that your reader has already read the work you are discussing, and assume that your reader knows important information about the author’s life already.

-Play the numbers game. Remember that your paper must be at least 2,000 words (not counting the Works Cited), and the paper must include at least 5 sources.

Note that sources like Wikipedia, Sparknotes, and other open-web sources are not appropriate for this paper.

-MLA formatting for paper style, in-text citations, and the Works Cited is a significant part of this paper.

Your introduction should include a thesis. Each paragraph of your paper should include a topic sentence that references your thesis. Each sentence in each paragraph should directly support that paragraph’s topic sentence. -Finally, don’t forget the little things. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation should be perfect. Edit and revise your work. Manage your time efficiently to allow yourself the opportunity to read and reread your final paper multiple times.
