Your first essay will explore a topic in The Picture of Dorian Gray and How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents. You are required to use both texts–we don’t read in isolation and our prior reading experiences contribute to our appreciation for texts we subsequently read.
The aims of this essay will be for you to accomplish the following: 1) present an argument (with your own unique thesis) about these important literary texts; 2) back up that argument with evidence from the two primary texts; 3) offer your argument and evidence within a clear pattern of organization and convincing analysis; 4) provide equal, meaningful treatment of the texts in a logical comparison; and 5) write clearly, concisely, and correctly, including correct usage of Modern Language Association in-text citations for all quotes and specific references to the novels.
Please include a Works Cited page at the end of your essay.
You may use ADDITIONAL course reading materials in this essay. (In fact, if used meaningfully, this may make for a stronger essay.) And if you’re interested in ADDING texts to your discussion, by all means do so–just talk with me first!

The essay should be approximately 5 pages long (double spaced, with 1-inch margins and in a 12-point font). The final due date for the essay will be 11/22. Below are some suggestions as to literary and/or critical issues or themes. You may also devise your own topic; if you do so, please discuss your idea with me in advance so that I can ensure that your topic is sufficiently complex and suitably focused.
To get started:
Read the article titled “Reading and Responding to Literature.”
Respond to ONE of these three questions in your essay:
1. Memorable literary works are often innovative. How do The Picture of Dorian Gray and How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents similarly challenge societal norms and/or literary conventions, and how do they differ in what they’re trying to/what they do accomplish?
2. How do The Picture of Dorian Gray and How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents show relevance to concepts studied in other disciplines? Craft a nice thesis/conclusion that explains the significance of these comparisons to other disciplines.
3. Many scholars say that literature is valuable because of its universal truths (those which relate to human nature, in particular). How can a novel as imaginative as Dorian Gray (albeit oddly “real” in its imaginitiveness) and a novel as autobiographical as Garcia Girls approach a discussion of truths/reality? Why must we look at both of these texts to get a more comprehensive picture? (In other words, how can comparing these help you arrive at a universal truth of literature?)
From the customer: please include textual evidences and proper citations. Thank you!

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
