    Analyzing lord of the flies

    is this a good thesis statement? My teacher will be grading it very carefully and i need to make sure its good thesis and has good punctuation.

    In this reaserch paper i will analyze 3 different themes in the text, "Lord of the Flies". I will argue how the book relates to christianity, the concept of civilization and savagery, and finally i will give my own interpretation of what i think is the major theme in the text is.

    I assume you'll be using proper capitalisation and spelling in the real thing.
    Your final clause is not good. You should state what that theme is.
    For example: " ... and [I will] state what I believe is the main theme - the need of people for a strong leader." (Or whatever your main theme is).

    Also. it's not clear what you mean by 'thesis statement'. Analysing* anything is neither a thesis nor a statement.

    * Note the spelling. If you're writing Br English, this is one of the words where is nothing optional about the S- even for people who use Z spellings where they're optional (as I do).
