Plastic surgery

Length:  2.5-3 double-spaced pages

Format: MLA

For this essay, identify a thing or a practice considered beautiful (or ugly/repulsive) by your society and summarize its alleged virtues (or flaws) as clearly and fairly as possible.  After all, whole societies or cultures don’t think something is beautiful or ugly for no significant reason – there’s always an elaborate idea of beauty or virtue behind such selections or demonizations.  Then create an argument about the subject, taking an opposing viewpoint to that of your society.  The result should be a 5-paragraph essay with an introduction and thesis, body paragraphs that support the thesis, and a conclusion that reflects upon the importance of what you have discussed.

It might be a good idea to use a source or two to use as examples of positions with which you agree or disagree (in part or in whole).  You can discuss your differences/agreements with your sources along the way as you explain/explore your own position.  If you do this, be sure to note material taken from sources in parenthetical in-text notes AND a bibliographic entry at the end of  your essay.

TOPIC OF THIS ESSAY IS : Plastic surgery in the western culture.
