I was following along with this chapter until I came to the part on Organizing your Essay on a Close Reading. This seems very elementary. In fact, I have always had a hard time adjusting to college level essay writing and this just confuses me more. If I turned in an essay in this style, I probably wouldn't earn much of a high grade. What I did find somewhat helpful was the section on Writing an Essay on the Close Reading of a Poem. I have a hard time analyzing poetry so knowing that I don't have to focus on each meaning of every word is a relief.
