    • 7. A “Roadmap” Intro:Hooks the reader inAnnounces the topicLays out the structure of the paper, “turn” by“turn”Gives a full and detailed statement of the paper’scentral claim
    • 8. Where does the paper “turn”?
    • 9. The current intro
    • 10. Turn 1: Laying Out Percy
    • 11. Turn 2: Grandmother’s Experience
    • 12. Turn 3: Synthesis (Comparing Grandma and Percy)
    • 13. Turn 4: The curve ball! Something is wrong!
    • 14. Note: the definition of a “turn” is subjective
    • 15. The Conclusion
    • 16. Building the “Roadmap”• Track down the “turns” in your paper• List out the central topic inside of each “turn”• Write this list out as a sentence or a series of sentences• Finish with a clear and specific statement of claim (or “thesis,” or “argument”)
    • 17. Our writer’s “map”:• Sovereign experiences occur when a sovereign knower “confronts” a thing to be known.• By Percy’s definition, my grandmother’s discovery of the ocean can be considered “sovereign.”• (Connection between Percy and Grandma)• There is a problem with Percy’s label of “sovereign experience.”• By creating the label of “sovereign experience,” Percy ruins the ability for an experience to be truly beyond description.
    • 18. Expanding our writer’s intro: In his article “The Loss of the Creature,” writer WalkerPercy pulls his readers into a thought process of mind-blowing proportions. He makes his readers step back andtake a serious look at themselves and how they look at theworld. In so doing, he coins the term “sovereign experience”.According to Percy, such an experience occurs “whensovereign knower confronts the thing to be known”. But whois the sovereign knower? What does Percy mean by his useof the word “confront”? And what is this “thing to beknown”?

According to Percy,such an experience occurs “when sovereign knower confrontsthe thing to be known”. But who is the sovereign knower?What does Percy mean by his use of the word “confront”? Andwhat is this “thing to be known”? When my grandmother was ayoung child, her first sight of the ocean was one of these“sovereign experiences”: it was a true confrontation, and thesight of it went beyond words. However, as I think about herexperience and Percy’s ideas, I realize that something is terriblywrong. By creating the label of “sovereign experience,” Percyruins the ability for an experience to be truly beyond description.
