Language Arts is not Math.

There is not necessarily a right and wrong answer when talking about literature.

You need to prove to me that your opinion or interpretation is correct.

You should always be able to back up your beliefs with proof.

Using evidence will be expected of you from now until high school.


Example
Example

The speaker in the poem obsesses about the subject’s physical beauty. According to the speaker, “And all that’s best of dark and bright / Meet in her aspect and her eyes” (Byron 3-4). By indicating that the best of night and day are present in her eyes, the reader is able to see the obsession the speaker has with the subject’s physical appearance.

Example

When Blanch enters Stella and Stanley’s apartment, she is appalled, even disgusted. Blanche’s first reaction to the location of her sister’s home was “This – can this be – her home?” (Williams 16). It was incomprehensible to Blanche how her sister could live in such a simple house with barely two rooms.
