I am trying to come up with a thesis for my english paper. It is going to be on Social class in Katherine Mansfields The Garden Party and A Cup of Tea. I want to show how both the upper class main characters take particular interest in the lower class characters. I came up with the one below if you could think of anymore that better relates to what I'm trying to do that would be very helpful. Also the upper class romanticises the lower class and lives in a "fake" reality.(The last thing I added was just a note on what the social class during the 1900's (when the short stories were set) in Europe was like.)
Potential Thesis: In Katherine Mansfield’s short stories The Garden Party and A Cup of Tea, she uses the upper classes disillusionment of reality to show the rigid social structure beneath.
That's a good working thesis. Now, outline your arguments that support your thesis.
