so I was assigned Sylvia Plath’s poem “Edge”..Ive annotated it and I understand the poem completely BUT we have to write a paper centering the entire paper upon a thesis question that encapsulates the entire poem…and idk I think I’m having a mental block or something…but I don’t have the slightest idea on what to base my question on and I have absolutely no idea what my three paragraphs would utilize in the poem that would be meaty enough to defend my argument..any help would be greatly appreciated..I just need a push to get the ideas rolling…

Wait… So your university or lecturer makes you ask a thesis question in this expository or descriptive essay?
I was about to ask “What is the theme of “Edge” by Sylvia Plath?” but that’s a bit simplistic, it’s a good question though.
What is “Edge” by Sylvia Plath about?
The theme and topic of this poem could easily dominate paragraphs. Just describe the poem and analyse the poem.
Source(s): I don’t have much experience with “thesis questions”.
What is the essay question? Is is “make your own question”?
Nikki, if you included the textof the poem you would get more answers, since most of your readers do not have it handy.
