A literary analysis is the study, evaluation and interpretation of literary works.


By writing strong thesis, a writer stays focused in their analysis. Remember, a strong thesis must be specific, not broad and vague. Take this example:

"In The Great Gatsby Daisy, Jordan and Myrtle are all different representations of women in the 1920s."

This is a good thesis statement. It is specific and gets right to the point of the essay.

Now here is another thesis that needs work:

"Dr. Seuss was a terrible person."

This is not clear or specific. It is too vague. Avoid writing these type of thesis statements.

A strong thesis can take a writer far in their literary analysis. Good luck!
