MLA style essay (incorporating in-text citations) center your essay on Ceremony to further define wilderness. Do not summarize the text but address how literary devices such as symbol, foreshadowing, figurative language, metaphor etc. work in Ceremony. Your essay should address the idea of the role of the journey in wilderness, and comment on how a particular literary device is used in Ceremony. For instance, you might focus on a single symbol (the wind, the uranium mine, the cattle, etc.) or multiple symbols (make notes as you read). You may analyze the structure (what is its effect), or consider how figurative language, personification, simile, etc. work throughout the narrative. The point is to chose one literary device and build an essay around it which addresses the role of wilderness in Tayo’s development.
