(This exemplar is based on the conversations that we had together in class about Sylvia Plath’s poem “Cinderella.” Thank you for all of your contributions and amazing ideas. You get all of the credit for interpreting and analyzing the poem. I simply did my best to string your thoughts together into an example of how to complete this assignment. I hope that it helps!)
IMPORTANT: Additional Assignment Instructions from Mrs. C
1. You are expected to use a formal writing voice for this assignment.
2. Your Introductory Statement should include your main argument (thesis) about the poem you have selected.
