Need help on paper

I’m trying to learn for my Writing class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

It should be a Word document 3-4 pages long (double-spaced, 12-point font).Make sure your name and date are on the first page of the document itself.

In this paper, you should concentrate on creating a real argument, not just listing observations about the works (I should be able to disagree with your paper, while still thinking it’s good work). To that end, you should end your first paragraph with a question. Your final paragraph should then provide the answer to that question.


1. VIOLENCE. How important is violence to a detective story? To a spy story? Is violence dealt with similarly in both genres, or does its treatment differ? Choose two works and analyze the role/significance of death in each.

the opening paragraph of your essay must end with a question. That question should then be answered in the final paragraph. An example of an appropriate question might be “Why is murder a more common topic of detective stories than, say, theft or assault?”
