What year is this for? Just to gauge how detailed you want your analysis to be. You always have you generalized essay plan to begin. •Introduction - Background information on topic Overall point of view of the topic (thesis) Overview of components to be discussed (structure) •Body paragraphs BP1: Topic sentence outlining first component Sentences giving explanations and providing evidence to support topic sentence Concluding sentence – link to next paragraph BP2 Topic sentence outlining second component Sentences giving explanations and providing evidence to back topic sentence Concluding sentence – link to next paragraph Following body paragraphs ◾These follow the same structure for as many components as you need to outline •Conclusion Summary of the main points of the body Restatement of the main point of view Justification/evaluation

@dehelloo We'll I take a college level course, and I have to do a 3 page essay. .w. Also, my English teacher informed me that the five paragraph essay's are virtually unusable in college, or she won't let us use em anyway. And the topic itself is based on a short story from Sherlock Holmes. "The Case of Identity"

@fierstar123 Well a short essay would mostly consist of Claim Data and Backing. Is what it seems.

But a three page Claim, Data Backing would seem outrageous. So try the 5 paragraph but extend it into much more.

But I'm not claiming anything @BraydonG, I am merely analyzing it. Nothing to claim. I just don't know how to go about analyzing it. I am supposed to analyze how holmes soved the case, even state a few fallacies in his works if possible.

Is it on a specific chapter/prompt or more open ended? Can you draw on similarities/differences from his other work or is it specifically on this one by Doyle? Are we focusing on actual literary techniques and the affect on the reader or more on character analysis? I haven't studied this particular story but I did a year ago explore Doyle's Hound of the Baskivilles and another which I can't remember. I managed to write a couple pages exploring Holmes as a characters at leisure vs at work and contrast that to Watson. Focusing on their psychological tendencies/differences and how Doyle used various techniques to elicit/highlight their difference. And how in various novels especially the Hound of Baskervilles Sherlock is explored through Watson - the two are intrinsically linked blah. If I can find my essay I'll post it. Hopefully someone can add more to it.

The Character is mostly focus on holmes, and how he tries to solve the problem. I can't use other stories for eveidence, because its not a "Research paper" and its more on character analysis. Like what deductions he used to get his response. How did he solve the crime and so fourth. I know how he did it, I'm just unsure how to make it an analyisis essay without it becoming a claiming five paragraph essay.

Would have to read the book again. Honestly just structure your paragraphs so that you explore Holmes' deductions and analyse and how the author highlights events with certain literary techniques making sure to holistically analyse as oppposed to make any broad claims. So I wasnt much help mate.
