English Essay Research Essay Thesis Help! Urgent!
I need help constructing a solid, arguable thesis statement. Here is the assigned question:
"Why are imaginative worlds that differ from the everyday world essential elements of two of the novels we have studied? What are the symbolic purposes of such worlds for the characters, audience, and/or author, and what does this imply about the psychological development of child readers and/or the 'real' world?"
We are encouraged to narrow down the question, and it is highly important we answer "why" part of the question.
The two texts I am using are Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and the Hobbit.
I need help with a thesis and a general structure of what I should or could argue based off the thesis.
Here is my working thesis:
Imaginary worlds are important for children's literature since they allow readers to plunge into the text deeper and truly beleive in the reality of the events.
This thesis obviously needs a lot of work, and can be changed moderately or significantly.
