So you have to write a formal literary Essay on the Novel: “The Book Thief”. In the essay you have to answer the question: How is symbolism used in the novel? Explain three symbols and their impacts on the text. The Essay should be 5 paragraph long with 3 body paragraphs and a intro and conclusion. In the thesis statement you need to have 3 arguments for the topic (1 argument per body paragraph). You need to have 2 PPE (point, proof and explanation) per body paragraph. You will be using at least two quotes per body paragraph as proofs, so six quotations must be used and there should be intext citations for them. You need to site the book too in MLA format on work cited page. I have also attached the rubric.
