Question:

What is a thesis statement?

Inactive
Lily S.
Answer:

A thesis statement is the essence of your essay. It's a sentence that states your paper's argument. A thesis statement should always be a debatable claim. If it's as simple as "the sky is blue," then it is a fact, not a thesis.

Question:

How did Jane Austen contribute to the idea of the modern novel?

Inactive

Answer:

Austen was one of the pioneers of Free Indirect Discourse, a writing style that combines elements of the third-person perspective and the first-person perspective to allow the author to jump into a character's thoughts while still maintaining an objective distance. This flexible style allows the reader to sympathize with many characters instead of being trapped in one character's perspective for the entire novel.

Question:

What is meant by the French term "flâneur" in film, and how does it apply to American cinema?

Answer:

A "flâneur" is someone who is aimless and idle, an idea which was exemplified in popular French New Wave films such as Breathless, where the main character spent much of the film wandering in Paris and reflecting on his life. We can see the influence of this type of character in classic American movies like Taxi Driver, where the main character Travis Bickle drives around aimlessly in his taxi during the night and tries to find meaning in his life.
