Learning Goal: I’m working on a literature report and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Read The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry , and explain how the author uses the plot, the setting, the characterization, the tone/style, and the point of view to create meaning in the theme(s) of the story. Be sure to identify the themes in a Thesis Statement. How do the elements work together to help the author create meaning?
This essay will require analysis. Don’t bother retelling the story: your readers have read it. Instead, take the story apart to see how the pieces interact. Show us cause-and-effect relationships. The causes are the elements and the effects are the issues that the author wishes the readers to think about.
You will need to make frequent references to the story (and perhaps information in other parts of readings) in order to support your thesis. These references will need to be cited and documented. (See the “Document and Citing Sources” page in the Start Here area). The references themselves will not be sufficient: you have to draw the connections for us.
