This is my first coursework essay ever,and i am somehow meant to et an A*,and ive never read so much as read a B graded course work...
We are basically doing this on Thomas Hardy,the teacher just said that and jotted down a few points that we could focus on;forensic,inference,dialect,social contacts,influences,historical and biography,photographs ,use of light and use of colour.It is meant to be at least 3 pages and its due in 3 days.Thats all the information she said she would give.
How do i even start an essay like this properly...most of the essays ive looked at on the internet about Thomas Hardy are either arguing a point or comparing.(mostly about his philosophy and his books).And they start with quotations,questions and facts.
Dou you recommend i start with a fact too?Do i write about him from my opinion,what about quotations and references are they necessary,i havent read a single book of his.How and from which persepective do i write the conclusion about him on my last paragraph.What is the purpose of an essay which evolves around a person?
Can someone explain to me clearly what a thesis is?
