As you compose your essay, be sure to explain and/or describe how the writers’ use of figurative language or conventional language affects the way themes are received by the reader.
Be sure to use either MLA or APA to format and properly cite your essay. This will include a title (only APA) and either a References Page (APA) or Works Cited Page (MLA).
