The thematic concern of The Metamorphosis
Choose a thematic concern of The Metamorphosis; some possibilities are societal alienation, the inequalities of labor, and solitude vs. isolation, though multiple themes could be argued. Develop a thesis about what the story has to say on the chosen theme, and bold the thesis sentence so I know what you’re arguing. Then,
choose three key moments from the novella to back up your argument.
Make your case in at least 900 words, and be sure to quote as needed from the text and only the text.

A little advice:
Write a thesis that actually argues something. Rather than say “The Metamorphosis reveals a lot about family dynamics,” be more specific: “The Metamorphosis is a cautionary tale about the consequences of too much parental pressure on children.” Then, you can focus the essay on proving how it’s a cautionary tale about parental pressure. Try to be specific and focused.
