Hi folks,

The critical essay on the question below is due in Wednesday 25th October 2017.

Choose a novel or short story in which there is a moment of significance for one of the characters.

Here is the PowerPoint we’ve been using in class – I’ve also included a section towards the end on essay writing, with examples, mini exercises, etc. It would be advisable to look at this as you are writing the essay.
