Hello everyone. I am new to the forums and in need of help.
I am a high school student, and my current assignment is to write a research paper on a novel that was earlier assigned to us. How do I go about doing this? I wouldn't imagine it to be like a normal research paper, on a solid topic where you would find information and write it down. (With citations, or course.)
Do you use information you've researched as a guideline and not actually use any information from it? The sample papers I was given are somewhat bleak. It seems that the writer used the criticisms and interpretations from recourses on their book then matched it with quotes from the actual novel. But I am most likely wrong.
I am in a panic. Any input would be very appreciated.
P.S. The novel in question is [I]The Sun Also Rises[I] by Ernest Hemingway if that makes any difference.
