Offer a close reading of the text by choosing one passage from the novel and argue why it is the most important line in the reading selection. In other words, you will find a passage in the story that you see as essential to the understanding of the whole story it comes from. You must quote this passage somewhere in the response, then explain why you chose it. In this paper, you may explain how this passage helps you understand a theme, a concept, or a character in the story from which it comes. As with any paper, you should include quotations and other relevant details from the text you are discussing. The paper must also come with a Works Cited page that cites the story (since you will be quoting). Be sure that you have created a thesis statement, and use topic sentences to focus your paper throughout.
