Organize your essay around a main idea that you support with textual evidence and analysis. Be sure to write for an audience unfamiliar with the text you’re writing about and the conversations that we’ve been having in class. That means that you should slow things down and explain your ideas very carefully to your reader. When structuring your paragraphs, remember to tell, cite, analyze, and link. You may want to consult the sample doc on Wilde in the Principles of Composition folder on Blackboard. Title your essays and number your pages. Your title should give your reader a sense of what the essay is about.
