In a three-to-four page essay, discuss several of the key aspects that you encountered in your reading of Born a Crime that you believe reflect contemporary society and/or how the book relates to your own life. Keep in mind that although the book should be outlined briefly as a way to orient the reader to the material being presented, the essay should not be a review or synopsis of the book, but a developed analysis and examination of specific and particular elements contained within the work. The response should have several quotes from the book as a way to support the ideas of the writer. If any additional source material is used for support, the additional material should be presented as in-text citations. As always for this class, the essay should follow MLA format and guidelines. There is no need for a Works Cited page unless the additional source material is incorporated into the essay. Remember, this is a literary analysis and should include relevant quotes to emphasize and support your ideas. Please be sure to include in the essay an introduction that briefly connects or situates the reader to the work and highlights the main issue or issues you will be writing about. In other words, the essay needs to contain a thesis statement. Also, remember to develop a conclusion and don’t simply end the discussion abruptly.
