what is a critical analysis?
i work on critical lens essays but always get 70’s because i don’t really get the concept of analysis could someone please explain in detail what it means and give examples

A critical analysis means you are being critical . You need to prove your thesis Like it is an ARGUEment. You have your intro, your initially-(in the beginning so-and-so is like this), consequently(something happens), however (how does the character handle it), finally (who the character is in the end) … Then you have a conclusion. Don’t foget to use your thesis statement in your intro and your conclusion that is very important. Never use a proof without a discussion . A proof without discussion is useless! 🙂 this should help you! Best of luck!
