The assignment is to “write a narrative essay about the Great Gatsby,” or another novel, of your choice. You may also choose to write a more autobiographical narrative essay about a personal experience as is the case in Death of a Moth, or Frustration at the Airport. You are asked to tell a story and make a point about that story. You must make a point about the story you tell in the introductory and concluding paragraphs of your narrative essay, ie., you must have your own thesis about the significance of the story you choose to tell. Basically a story is chronologically organized ie., it flows forward in time from an original moment to a later moment.
