Write an analytical essay that makes a specific claim regarding some aspect of Peter Beagles novel The Last Unicorn.

You need to make a statement about WHY your topic matters. Answer the so what? question. For example, you need to do more than merely point out the fairy tale motifs in the novel, you need to argue for their purpose, function, etc. You need to make a statement beyond whats obvious. How do those motifs support one of the novel’s main themes? What is interesting about the topic you’ve chosen? Your thesis should be the answer to a debatable question.
