Here is a step by step guide that would not only help you out how to make a character sketch for essay but also assist you to write essay on characters efficiently and effectively
The purpose of character analysis essay is not just to describe about a character that your teacher assigns you to study. The core purpose of a character essay is to enhance your knowledge and awareness regarding the psychological factors associated with particular character. When it comes to character essays, many students fail to write on a good character essay since they don’t analyze the character as they should.
Students have 2 choices to write character analysis essays. They can either choose a protagonist or antagonist to write an essay on character. Generally, most of the students prefer to write essays on character by choosing a protagonist but they don’t realize that this choice makes their essays ordinary since many people write essays on characters regarding protagonists
Note: (Assume LORD VOLDEMORT, the fictional character and antagonist of a novel, Harry Potter is the character that you have chosen) Introduction: Your introduction should have the following elements: Hook: In hook, you should develop a sentence that perfectly introduces your character of a story and author. An example may be as follow: “In the novel, Harry Potter, J.K Rowling introduces the antagonist, LORD VOLDEMORT”.
A few statements about the character: You should mention at least 2 or 3 sentences to give a glimpse what you‘re going to explore in your character analysis essay. One example regarding our assumed character may be as follow: “LORD VOLDEMORT, the most evil wizard for hundred years is a raging psychopath. He has no feelings for human companionship and believes that no one is superior to him”. Thesis statement: Your thesis statement should be as such that it explains both the strength and weakness about character. See an example below: “He is extremely powerful and intelligent, but he is too arrogant that lead him to his downfall”.
Body Paragraphs: Since, your thesis statement is comprised of strength and weakness of the character; therefore, the body of your character essay should follow 2 paragraphs; one for strength and one for weakness: Paragraph 1: It should focus on the strength of a character that you have chosen. Here is the road map that you should follow to compose your 1st body paragraph: Topic Sentence: It should be composed in such a way that explains the strengths of a character in brief. An example may be as follow: “LORD VOLDEMORT is both powerful and intelligent”
Utilizing a Quotation: Your quotation should be a complete thought that clearly defines your point of view. An example may be as follow: “LORD VOLDEMORT has the power to control people’s mind and was assumed to be the best student that Hogwarts ever had”. Explanation: You should prove your point that you mentioned as a quotation on the basis of proofs. You can make your point here by depicting how LORD VOLDEMORT took control over Daily Prophet in the Deathly Hallows even no one was comparable to match his magical intelligence. Paragraph 2: Following the procedure of paragraph 1, you can create another body paragraph regarding the weakness of the character you have chosen. Utilizing VOLDEMORT’s inability to love and trust others; you can generate another exclusive body paragraph just like the one above.
Summary: Although, many students know that conclusion of any essay should be a synopsis of major topics that you have discussed in your essay but they don’t avoid to write 1st person pronouns. Remember, you’re not writing for yourself; you are writing for others, so, it’s better that you avoid using “I” or “We” while writing essay as it contributes your essay to be informal rather formal. In short, a character analysis essay is not a big deal if you follow a step by step guide on how to write a character analysis essay
