what is a catchy topic for my essay based on this thesis statement?

In Nathaniel Hawthorne's, The Scarlet Letter, it suggests that one must find their own internal strength and strive for individual redemption by applying the beliefs of transcendentalism and individualism to one's own life.


If there are any suggestions on changing my thesis statement into a better one, please don't hesitate to advice me ^.^

Thank you! :)

  1. I think you're going about this backwards. The thesis statement needs to be drafted AFTER you have a specific topic in mind.

    What were you thinking before you wrote that statement?
