Books and articles are not the only subjects, sometimes you may be asked to write a critical analysis of a movie, a painting, or any other work of art.
Everything has its main theme and the main idea that the author was trying to express.
Think about the context of the work and solutions that the author offers to any problems.
You need to analyze it while reading, and we suggest starting with the author’s thesis.
If you’re writing about an academic article, it may be easy to understand what its thesis statement is, however, you will need to determine it in case of any other subject, including movies, pictures, or fiction stories.
