Question:

When should a writer cite information from outside sources?

Answer:

A writer or researcher should cite information from outside sources when it is necessary and relevant in order to support an opinion. Unless you are an expert on a subject, you should always back up the claims you back with outside evidence. The main focuses of your writing, however, should be on expressing your reasoning behind your thesis statement. Be careful not to quote or paraphrase too much from outside sources, since this will detract from your own argument in the end.

Question:

How does one determine the theme of a literary text?

Inactive

Answer:

The theme of a literary text is different from the topic, since the theme is the deeper life lesson the author intends the reader to learn from the work of literature. The use of theme is what makes literary text unique and different from informational text, which focuses more on facts and figures. The theme is determined by examining the diction, symbolism, and figurative language in the text and by looking for repeating patterns. Often, the author will foreshadow the theme of the text using a certain image or symbol at the beginning, and subsequently re-iterate the same image or symbol at the end of the text, which is known as a circular structure.
