Analysis should include:
1. A general description of the character that includes examples of how that character things and/or acts in specific situations.
2. An analysis of your character through the lens of two theories from two different perspectives. In this analysis you should describe the key characteristics and behaviors exhibited by your character and the fundamental components of each theory that can explain those behaviors and characteristics. In your analysis be sure to define the terms that you use for each theory, and utilize as much of each theory as possible.
3. A concluding assessment describing the strengths and limitations of each theory for analyzing your chosen character.
In your analysis, make sure that you state specific examples from each theory that describe the personality of your character, and define the aspects of the theory that you use to analyze your character. Provide evidence for your analyses by supporting your statements with examples of that characters thoughts and/or behaviors. Make sure that you correctly cite your source for your examples using the format of your discipline.(6-8 pages)
