Project Description


From the writing prompts supplied by Mr. Breite, you will craft your thesis for this essay.  Be sure to support your ideas using scholarly critical sources in addition to the text of play itself.  You will include a Works Cited page in correct MLA format, as well as in-text citations for direct quotes and paraphrases of critical sources, and for lines quoted from the play.  This Reference Guide will connect you to a variety of secondary, critical sources to support your thesis.  Please see your teacher or a librarian if you need help. Enjoy the process!
