Throughout the semester, we’ve been reading and discussing how different writers imagined social, political, ethical, or ideological concerns as types of monsters that both popular narratives (movies, television, novels, etc) and popular rhetoric (essays, political speeches, etc) tend to reflect or represent. For your next essay, find an essay, speech, story, poem/song, play, movie, or television show that makes a monster of a particular idea. Write an argument that explains how the text explicitly uses a monster to illustrate a certain idea or implicitly characterizes a certain idea as a type of monster. After that, proceed to refute or reject that argument or characterization with the logical application of research from professional and academic sources (Galileo, Google Scholar, EBSCO, JSTOR, etc are great search engines for such research—otherwise use only .org or .edu sites).

Not asking for anyone to write my essay for me! Just need help developing a thesis.

@PUNKEY,
What would be the idea behind the monster they represent and how would I go about refuting it?
