I’m working on a English question and need guidance to help me study.

Second Essay Assignment –Thematic Analysis

- REQUIARED THE BOOK "INTERPRETER OF THE MALDIVES" by Jhumpa Lahiri

- TOPIC: INMIGRATION AND CULTURAL CHANGE

- CHAPTERS TO FOCUS ON (ONLY 2 CHAPTER) = THRID AND FINAL CONTINENT AND ...

Assignment:

This assignment will allow you to further explore a theme in one of the texts we have read this semester. You will identify a theme and trace that theme in the text, supporting it with ample textual evidence (close reading of details, passages, and scenes from the book).

Theme:

A theme is what a book says about an issue. If “business ethics” is an issue in W.D. Howells The Rise of Silas Lapham, “The novel argues that maintaining ethics in business is impossible in the corporate age” is a theme. Reasonable people can disagree with this theme––in other words, you have to make your case.

For such a short essay, you will need to pay special attention to narrowing your theme. “Family is important” is much too broad and vague a theme. “Family kinship is more important in the novel than individual desire” is a narrower and more specific theme.

Requirements:

The essay needs to be approximately 3 pages double-spaced, Times New Roman 12-inch font. It will need to cite and/or paraphrase passages from the text in correct MLA form. You need to make it to the end of the third page. Your essay will not be accepted unless it has been revised for feedback.

Process:

After choosing a topic that interests you, return to the text. Skim the text with this topic in mind, marking down relevant passages. As you revise the essay, think about organization and support, be sure you cite specific details, passages or scenes to support your theme, and be sure you explain how they support your theme. Do not overquote (paraphrase instead!) and be sure to integrate any quotes. Remember that revision is not correction, it is a re-seeing of your argument and involves content and organization. Finally, edit the essay at the sentence level for style and grammar.

Immigration and Cultural Change
The Third and Final Continent is a short story in The Interpreter of Maladies by Lahiri
(2000). Just like the other stories in the book, the chapter explores the theme of immigration,
assimilation, and cultural change. However, the narrator and his wife, Mala, exhibit strength and
bravery in their assimilation journey in a new country. The narrator admits that Mrs. Croft’s life
is the first life that she admired in a new country and the first death that he mourned. The story
portrays the narrator as a polite, enduring, and attentive worker who readily adapts to the local
customs. The ease with which the narrator adopts the customs is achieved through advance
research and creative improvisation to overcome the inconveniences of the new traditions. The
story ends in happiness as the couple becomes fully assimilated American citizens with their son
attending Harvard. Ultimately, the story d...
