Elvin Fuentes's Request (28 Mar 2019)

Hello, I'd like to know what you think about my rough draft based on the poem "The House Slave" by Rita Dove. What do you think I should improve on and what do you think about my thesis, etc? Thanks so much.

    Dear Elvin, Thank you for sending your essay to Athena. You should not use 1st person at all. Never say, “I feel” in a literary analysis. Your analysis of the literary elements should reveal a hidden or implicit meaning to the poem, which you should include in your thesis statement, in each body paragraph, and in the “blending” paragraph. “Slaves suffer” is not a hidden meaning: It is explicit. I hope you find these comments useful. If you want more help, come into a lab to work with a tutor face to face (we have five locations), or post specific questions here on Athena. Also, handouts are available at https://success.students.gsu.edu/ltc. Click on Handouts on the left, and then Grammar and Writing Handouts. Good luck! If you have a moment, please cut and paste this address into your browser, and take our survey. Thanks! https://gsu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6hzzM9kX7sy9aJf
