A thesis should have an opinion along with a few controlling ideas to make your writing easier to follow and understand. A great thesis is your plan, your organization for how you want the paper to be. With a very straightforward thesis, you should be able to write an essay in a very short time, allowing time for proofreading and editing. An example thesis statement could be: The comic aspects of Sister’s language, her paranoia and jealousy towards Stella-Rondo and her constant questioning of  the veracity of her family members, leads to her final, comic alienation from them, and her transition from home to her new abode, the post office. You can easily find statements to back up the controlling ideas, and your paper should be extremely well written.
