After reading Tablets VIII, IX, X, and XI of The Epic of Gilgamesh, write a five-paragraph essay (with a citation in each of your three supporting paragraphs) in response to: Gilgamesh ultimately fails in gaining the immortality he was seeking from Utnapishtim, but he comes to a revelation at the poem’s end that his name will live on if he can be a wise king rather than the arrogant one he was originally. Having now finished the poem, identify what you believe is its main theme and show how it is represented.
Please make sure the in-text parenthetical citations are done correctly
– stick to one citation per supporting paragraph
The length should be a minimum of three to five complete sentences.
– You must include your thesis statement within this paragraph.
– What does the remainder of your Introduction Paragraph consist of?
It should be a brief preview of the evidence you will bring in order to support
your thesis statement.
Supporting Paragraph(s):
– The length should be a minimum of five to seven complete sentences.
Open with two to three sentences which introduce your point of argument in
support of your thesis statement (this will be referred to as “lead-in”).
Bring in a citation (direct quote or paraphrase) that backs up your point of
argument in support of your thesis statement.
Close with two to three sentences which explain how the citation backs up your
point of argument in support of your thesis statement (this will be referred to as “synthesis”).
Conclusion Paragraph:- The length should be a minimum of three to five complete sentences.
– You want to reemphasize (not simply rewrite) your thesis statement.
– You want to make sure that you stress to the reader that you have successfully proven
-your points of argument in support of your thesis statement- One thing you want to avoid is introducing new material in your Conclusion Paragraph.
-You have used your Supporting Paragraph(s) to bring evidence to the table, so your final paragraph should be you wrapping things up.
MLA Style In-text Parenthetical Citations:
– There are two types of in-text parenthetical citations which you will be expected to utilize in your writing: direct quotes and paraphrases.
– A direct quote is the word-for-word rewrite of what someone else has either written or said and is placed in between quotation marks.
– A paraphrase is a rewrite, in your own words, of what someone else has either written or said. It is not placed in between quotation marks.
– Examples of direct quotes when citing prose (using “Reading to Write” by Stephen King) and how to write them into your work:
o The author writes that, “If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot” (King 231).
o King writes that, “If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot” (231).
– Examples of paraphrases when citing prose (using “Reading to Write” by Stephen King) and how to write them into your work:
o The author says that the best writers are those who are the most consistent readers and writers (King 231).
o King says that the best writers are those who are the most consistent readers and writers (231).
