Textual Support for Interpretation

Interpretive essays are essays in which the writer is interpreting another author’s work. In order to do this, the writer must identify, evaluate, and analyze the methods used by the author. These can be the plot, characters, setting, etc. It is important when writing an interpretive essay to try to answer all of the questions a reader of your work might have. This can be done by allowing another to read your work and ask questions about it, or by trying to separate yourself from your work and analyze it objectively. A great way to support your interpretation is to add textual evidence. If you can add textual evidence it gives your interpretation more credibility and it allows the reader to see the specific passage you are referring to when describing your interpretation.
