Notes from my instructor about my rough draft.
Alexie is such a powerful and controversial writer and the book
you have chosen speaks eloquently to those two points. I am just concerned
about the thesis statement since you refer to theme, then symbolism, then
controversies. You will want to focus in on one of these points. Is there a
specific theme you want to talk about, or specific symbolism. If so, how is
this theme or symbolism manifested or how is the theme manifested in specific
types of symbolism. Remember, the thesis statement needs to identify three
points the paper will address in making its argument. I hope that makes sense.
Let me know.
