ENGLISH Essays A

Our English section is the place to look for writing samples pertaining to writers and their works as well as to various literary theories and critics. Whether you are writing about a specific text such as Hemingway's "Cat in the Rain" or Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," or whether you are researching and writing about the life of a writer, you will find essays relating to your topic here. Read biographical pieces on writers, poets, and playwrights like Virginia Woolf, Emily Dickinson, and Henrik Ibsen. You might be researching and reflecting upon ancient Greek and Roman literature, or you may be immersed in analysis of current graphic novels, and we have samples that speak to both, addressing a full range of literary history.

Our essays also explore various literary genres: from prose to poetry to plays. You are just as likely to find a writing sample about Shakespeare's "Othello" or Chekov's "The Cherry Orchard" as you are to find a critique of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." Here you also will see writing that draws parallels between literary texts and historical trends. What are the links between "The Crucible" and McCarthyism? Discover close readings of famous works and comparisons between one well-known writer and another. For instance, read a critique of "Death of a Salesman" or a comparison between the writing of Charles Dickens and that of William Makepeace Thackeray.

Perhaps you are writing about a specific literary theory or are trying your hand at using a particular brand of literary criticism to analyze a literary work. Under this heading, you will encounter papers explaining and applying deconstructionism, postmodernism, and postcolonial theory, among others. Read about Jacques Derrida's view of the world and his understanding of meta-narratives. How does "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman lend itself to feminist literary theory? What does Nadine Gordimer's "The Conservationist" have in common with Edna O'Brien's, "How of Splendid Isolation" or Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "Love in the Time of Cholera?" How does the postcolonial thread that runs throughout these novels tie them together despite the fact they hail from vastly different countries and cultures? This is your go-to source for all writing pertaining to literature.
