Problem: I need some assistance fine-tuning a literary analysis research paper based on the short story by John Updike titled A & P. The paper's topic: - How have critics interpreted the closing words of "A & P," when Sammy admits, "I felt how hard the world was going to be to me hereafter"? What do they thing Sammy means by "hard"? Do they agree or disagree with Sammy's assessment of his own future? How do these responses compare with your own ideas about the story's ending? The feedback that I was provided was: -You're not correctly using internal citations - Give your essay its own title -Thesis, Needs work: -Thesis does not present a critical response to the issue. - No "I" in a literary essay Use active voice, not passive voice sentence construction What elements will you use to prove your claim? -In academic writing, quotation marks are most commonly used to enclose a person's exact words or to enclose the title of a short work such as an article, a short story, or a song. Some writers get confused when they use quotation marks with other marks of punctuation; periods and commas most often go inside quotation marks. -When borrowing ideas and words, writers must also acknowledge their sources. That means writers must document their sources so that their readers can also access them. MLA documentation style includes two parts: in-text citation, which appears within the same sentence as the borrowed material; bibliographic citation, which appears at the end of the work in a Works Cited page. - This shouldn't be numbered. Internal citations must be the author's last name and page number, not a number related to your WC list. The
