Now that the Boyle paper is completed, I feel that a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Completing the Boyle paper is a good feeling, because it took me so long to write this paper. The hardest part about writing the paper was dragging out the information to meet the four page minimum. I pretty much covered all of my analysis in 2 pages, so adding on two more pages was extremely difficult for me. Every time I wrote about a specific opinion or view of Boyle, it would only take four sentences to complete the explanation and analysis on the view or opinion. This is why I started running out of things to say and or write about. Besides the length, the Boyle paper overall was not that hard to write. The easiest part of this writing assignment was using the direct quotes to support Boyle’s views. Because this was just copying from the book and citing the source, the quotes were an easy way to lengthen the paper and support the main ideas. Overall I think I did a good job with my analysis. At first, I had trouble figuring out what Boyle’s views were and or his ideas about the theme and characters. When I reread both stories, I began to see patterns and or trends that allowed me to easily identify Boyle’s views and how he wanted the readers to feel towards characters and interpret the theme. After understanding Boyle’s perspectives, it was easy to analyze and find details to back them up. I broke down each of my ideas on Boyle’s theme and characters with an explanation and evidence, such as actions and quotes, from the text to support these ideas, which is why I feel my analysis was good. Although the paper was not extremely difficult, I would not want to write another paper similar to the Boyle paper. Although this assignment may have improved my writing skills, it was very boring and tedious. Hopefully we are done writing analysis papers for a while, but I have a feeling that is not the case.
