Literary Argument and Research
Research a writer, genre, period, theme, or work that interests you. You
should begin by reading primary sources (pieces by the writer). Read the
works of a writer that intrigues you or a group of writers whose works
carry similar themes, styles, or genre. The more you read, the better you
will know your writer and the more options you will have when you choose
your subject, then narrow it to form your thesis. You should also locate
secondary sources, material about the writer or work. This will include
relevant biographical, historical, and critical information.
