o Think about your chosen topic and how it relates to the plays you have
selected before formulating an approach. An essay needs time to ferment.
o Review and incorporate the feedback you received from your tutor on the
Essay Proposal assignment.
• Re-read the plays carefully with reference to the topic and make notes as
you read.
o Draft a thesis or main idea. You may wish to modify the thesis after you
have thoroughly explored the topic.
o Make a point plan.
o Write a first draft. Refer frequently to the topic to be sure that all the
material you include is relevant. Avoid plot summarizing or making
unsupported generalizations. Use the historical present tense of the verb.
o Be prepared to rewrite the introduction and conclusion several times.
These components are the hardest parts of the essay to write, and the most
important.
• Edit the first draft, reorganizing and revising where necessary. Correct all
grammatical and spelling errors.
o Include a References or Works Cited page at the end of your essay. “Works
Cited” normally include only the works you have cited or quoted in your
paper (see the “Citations” section of the “Tips on Writing Essays” page
linked to above). These must be listed alphabetically by author, last name
