2 Literary Essay Write a literary essay in 3 easy steps. Just remember to P.E.E.! P.E.E. stands for: Point Evidence Explanation

3 Step 1- Point What is the topic of the paragraph? The first sentence must make it clear what the paragraph will be about. For example: At the beginning of “A Christmas Carole,” Scrooge is a nasty and uncaring man.

4 Step 2- Evidence What words or phrases or events prove or illustrate your point? The next sentence should give evidence from the text. It must relate directly to your point! For example: Charles Dickens describes him as “hard and sharp as flint, from which no steel had ever struck out generous fire”(2).

5 Step 3- Explanation What does the author want the reader to think or feel by using those words? Explain how the evidence illustrates or proves your point. For example: This gives the impression that Scrooge is more like stone or metal than a human being. Dickens uses the simile to point out to the reader how uncaring and mean Scrooge is. It also shows that he is not a warm or generous man and one expects that he will be the villain of the story.
