Writing Homework Help. DAC the Road Is an Accurate Symbolic Representation of What Life Is Like in 2021 Essay
Write an argumentative essay that either supports or refutes this claim:
The Road is an accurate symbolic representation of what life is like in 2021.
The key word in this claim is “symbolic.” We all know that the world of The Road and our world — wherever we might live — are not identical. Your task is to argue whether or not The Road succeeds as a metaphorical expression of reality in 2021.
Metaphor: “a thing regarded as representative or symbolic of something else, especially something abstract”
By “life” I refer to human life — what life is like for humanity in 2021.
The audience for your essay has read the novel. Because they’ve read it, they want you to avoid extensive summary in the process of supporting or refuting this claim. It might be best for you to imagine that your reader has made the above claim, and they are now reading your essay to see if and why you either agree or disagree with them.
This essay will likely have our most complex writing process.

Include bibliographic information for your outside sources, formatted according MLA standards.
After providing your ten quotes and your bibliographic information, end the submission with a thesis that succinctly articulates the central claim(s) of your essay.
Of course, you are welcome to use other quotes should you come across them as you write. The purpose of this assignment is to assure that you begin gathering evidence for your argument before you actually begin your argument.

3. For the Final Draft（Undetermined）: Upload a doc, docx, or pdf document to Canvas that is at least five pages long, using MLA and class formatting requirements.
