I have to compare and constrast the funeral orations of Mark Antony and Marcus Brutus. What I need is a thesis statement for this paper and everything I come up with sounds lame. I'm not getting the message across. Could you help me?
Did you read what I asked you below?
Your thesis statement must include factual information plus your position/opinion/stance. Without your position on the topic, it isn't a true thesis statement. So think of this sentence as the angle you want to take on the topic and what you intend to prove by the end of your paper. (If your statement is simply factual, then there's nothing to prove!)
Read carefully and follow ALL directions.
This is one of the very best places I've seen online to help students write good thesis statements. It shows you sentences that aren't thesis statements and how to turn each one into real thesis statements.
