About this Document

An essay assignment I created for close-reading Raymond Carver's Cathedral. The specificity of the expected thesis statement really made this assignment worthwhile as we worked together in class comparing each student's thesis statements with the others. Through this process I think we learned much about "focus" in the analytical process and the types of appropriate evidence to use in the genre of literary analysis.
