For this essay, you will need to select a playwright and write a research paper which offers some insight into the playwright’s background and/or career AND ALSO analyzes one of his or her plays.  You should include the background information about the playwright in the first part of your paper.  In the second part, you should analyze a particular piece of work from the playwright.  Your thesis should clear, focused, and clearly identifiable in the first or second paragraph of the paper.  It can be explanatory, interpretative, or evaluative, but it should include literary techniques such as theme, symbolism, point of view, setting, character, etc.  Textual support in the form of concrete, specific examples should be provided in the body of your paper in order to support your claim.  Like your other papers, you are simply trying to explain to the reader a way of understanding or interpreting the play. To a degree, you are arguing that your way of seeing the work is a more reasonable way than some other. Unlike your previous papers, however, you will also be using your research (incorporating secondary sources) to further support your claim or analysis of the work. You must pull from reliable, creditable sources in order to support your thesis.  You should use at least four references from appropriate print sources.
