Literary Analysis Assignment

I have to defend the villain in a fairy tale by persuading ymy audience that he or she was set up. I have to convince the audience that the villain has been misrepresented and his/her motives were misunderstood.

The body of the essay must support the thesis statement through evidence (facts, examples, summaries) and commentary (opinions, analysis, interpretation, and insight).

The introduction must introduce the literary work, capture the reader's attention, and include a clearly written thesis statement that contains the literary interpretation. (in this case a character analysis/defense of the villain)

I'm defending the wolf in the big bad wolf in Little Red Riding Hood.

So the question do I defend the wolf's actions? What would make him want to eat Little Red riding Hood and her grandmother? What evidence would support if the big bad wolf had mental issues?

If Little Red Riding Hood is too difficult, then the next one would be Cincerella. If have do Cincerella, how do I defend the stepmother's actions and attitude towards Cincerella? What would be her reasons for mistreating Cincerella? Is it because she lost Cincerella's dad and she doesn't know how to look at Cincerella without seeing her husband?

Must be able to support?back up evidence as in why they did what they did. Must be persuasive and capture the reader's attention.
