Write a brief 4-5 page (1,000-1,250 word) essay revising and expanding upon the response already written.

Your essay should be at least five paragraphs long, but may be longer. Your essay must have a thesis statement and must make a clear and specific argument in response to the question. Each body paragraph should begin with a topic sentence and provide some kind of evidence (contextual information, logical development of your ideas, quotes, or details from the text) that supports and develops your topic statement.

Recommended Outline:

Introduction (1 paragraph)
Introduce the subject of your essay and the reason you are writing. In other words, be sure to explain to your reader what the essay is about and why the question you are examining matters. Note: you should not include the actual question anywhere in your essay, but you should phrase it in your own words so that the reader has some sort of context for the conversation you are involved in.

Be sure to end your introduction with your thesis statement or main argument. Your thesis should tell your reader what your argument or claim is in one sentence.

Body (3-5 Paragraphs)

The body of your essay should more or less range from 3 to 5 paragraphs in length. Each paragraph must begin with a topic statement that is followed by relevant examples and quotes from the poetry that support and prove the topic statement. To figure out what your topic statements should be, go back to your thesis and ask yourself, what ideas do I need to explore or explain in order to prove my thesis statement? If you are writing about a particular poem, be sure that you explain both what it means, as well as how it achieves its meaning


Wrap up your essay by summarizing your arguments, re-capping how you’ve proven your thesis and why your argument matters.

This is the question I had to answer. Both “A New Song” and “Open Letter to the South” or written by Langston Hughes:

2. One of the central themes of A New Song is the relationship between race and class and the importance of the mutual struggle of black and white workers together. Look at the two poems: A New Song and Open Letter to the South. In what ways do these two poems address the relationship between race and class? Be sure to use specific examples from the texts as support.  Response should directly respond to the question, and offer an answer in the form of an argument that is supported with details and facts form the text or outside sources.

****I will attach the response that I have already written. I just need to improve and expand the paper to an 1100 word complete essay with conclusion and everything.****
