The essay is on the novel the-thirty-nine steps. The link is above
Write a 500-600 word essay on the plot structure in your chosen novel. The stages of plot are the exposition, complication (initial conflict), rising action, crisis (in which the action has taken a turn and the storyline cannot continue as it has), climax (the point of greatest tension), falling action, and resolution, or denouement. These terms are described in the glossaries provided in Lesson 2’s Learning Activities. The attachment here describes plot for the short story but applies also to a novel. You will be identifying where the various stages begin or happen in your novel, explaining why a stage qualifies as the crisis, or climax, or resolution, and so on. Your concluding paragraph should discuss how the overall plot structure supports your chosen theme for the novel. Avoid trite cliches as a theme; make your theme more specific to the story in the novel. Remember from Lesson 2! A theme is not a topic/subject; a theme is what you think the novelist is saying about a topic/subject in his or her work.
Use the provided course resource for your novel as your citation on the Work Cited page.
Do not announce your subject in your paper (e.g., This paper will be about . . . or similar statements).
All essays and your research paper will follow MLA 8th edition formatting guidelines as described in various resources provided in the course, including the MLA heading and a Work Cited page.
All writing should be in the third person, avoiding pronouns such as I, me, we, or you. Subject-verb contractions, such as “ he’s” and “they’re,” should also be avoided, rather using “he is,” or “ he has,” and “they are.” This also eliminates other possible grammatical errors, such as “their” for “they’re.”
When discussing a work of literature, use the present tense; for example, “In ‘ A & P,’ Sammy uses the opportunity created by Lengel’s treatment of the girls as a means to escape his boring life and future, and he quits.”
Also, do the same when referring to the author. For example, “Shakespeare often manipulates syntax to maintain the iambic pentameter meter.” For more detail on using tense when writing about literature, refer to the article in Lesson 2.
