Literary Analysis Essay

Analyze one moment in which Arthur Miller uses literary devices to convey how a character or two different characters either:
a) rebel against or conform to authority figures
b) and/or peers
c) and/or the values and expectations of Puritan society.

Ultimately, what is Arthur Miller saying about the nature of societal pressure?

You will be given an opportunity to write on a second moment for extra credit. If you choose to do this then the second moment must be from a different character. (30 points)

To answer this question, you should

(1) Choose one “moment” from the attached list to analyze in your paper.

(2) In your paper, identify the character(s) and provide necessary context for the moment.

(3) Make a detailed claim about whether the character rebels or conforms.

(4) Thoroughly analyze the language in the quote, showing how that language supports your claim. This means to analyze how the literary devices used by the author propel the narrative and answer the question as it pertains to societal pressure.

(5) Draw an overall conclusion about what Arthur Miller conveys about the nature of societal pressure. (This will be your thesis and the idea you will reiterate in your conclusion!)
