• Persuasive Analytical Essay: Discuss the role of hypocrisy in Tartuffe. Develop a detailed analysis of its use in the work, and then develop a thesis based on your analysis. Your analysis will examine how the various characters either stay true to their values, or become hypocrites. If you decide that Orgon is the real bad guy because he refuses to listen to his family and lets himself fall into the trap of pride, that would become your thesis ??” your essay would then build an argument in support of your claim, drawing clear and conclusive examples from the play. The above is just an example of what needs to be accomplished in this paper. However, claims and positions must be well supported, and essays must be clearly written, well organized and essentially free of serious grammatical errors.
