English Literature: Adam Smith, Wealth of Nations

PLEASE FIRST SEND ME A SIMPLE HALF PAGE PROPOSAL OF YOUR THESIS SO I CAN APPROVE BEFORE YOU WRITE THE FULL PAPER.
For this assignment, read Adam Smith’s “Wealth of Nations”. I leave the choice of thesis up to you, but I ask you to keep in mind that the theme of the class is “Culture of Capitalism” and it is an English literature class. NOTE: The essay thesis should not be specifically on Culture or Culture of Capitalism, but on a specific salient point discussed in the text. Use only LIMITED outside references – again, your focus should be on the assigned text. It should not read like a wikipedia entry.
A successful research paper addresses one or two primary texts from our reading list. Your research question (as well as your argument) should be specific. Keep in mind that this is an English class. That means that your argument should speak about the text(s) you address, not about capitalism or society in general terms.
You have to find something specific about the text to write about and produce a tension-rich thesis statement. A good moment is always a passage that surprised you in the text – you might call it the WTF passage of the text. What is going on there? Why is Smith using this particular example, a certain imagery, or what is implied to make a particular statement plausible? Sometimes you can also think about passages that seem rushed, that seem to state something as a matter of fact, yet the facts might not be obvious at all. Passages in which Smith seems to rush over something, or in which he contradicts himself can also be interesting.
