You should write a unified essay and not a series of loosely connected interpretations of different tales. Find a central argument and thesis that you can support in the case of each tale you choose. Focus on presenting an argument and avoid irrelevant plot summary and description. Cite the text in order to bolster your claims and focus the reader’s attention on specific aspects of language central to your thesis; do not waste your time in paraphrasing the text. Finally, if you use secondary sources, be sure to cite in your footnotes any work which you feel has influenced you as you prepared your essay.
