Question:

How would you outline the basic structure of an essay?

Amanda N.
Answer:

I would outline the basic structure of an essay as follows: Opening paragraph, two to three body paragraphs, and a closing paragraph. The opening paragraph should include an intriguing hook, several sentences pertaining to the subject of each body paragraph, and a closing statement. Each body paragraph should include an introductory sentence, several concrete details from the text supporting the idea proposed by the introductory sentence, and two sentences of commentary explaining how the provided concrete detail supports the thesis. The closing paragraph should restate the ideas examined in the body paragraphs and end with a conclusory sentence.

Question:

How does Jane Austen argue for the importance of female agency in her novel Pride and Prejudice?

Amanda N.
Answer:

In this novel Jane Austen argues the importance of female agency, using the polarizing situations of sisters Elizabeth and Lydia Bennet. Whether it is Elizabeth rebuking unwanted proposals, or young Lydia pursuing romantic conquests, each girl exercises female agency in her own right throughout the course of the novel. In Lydia, her acts of female agency – although bearing the same weight as Elizabeth’s – have a negative spin, as they are often expressed as immature or coquettish. However, in Elizabeth’s case, her female agency is presented in a positive light expressed in her eloquent reproaches of undesired advances, whether they are romantic or social.
