There are many thousands of papers out there all arguing different interpretations of what was meant by his writing, many taking different opinions to each other.
There are many ways that you can interpret what a writer wants to say through their work but whatever you feel is their motivation and message you will need to back it up with evidence rather than just making assumptions.
Your interpretive thesis is the argument that you wish to make the work that you have written and then support with through the evidence that you present within the body of your writing.
Coming up with a solid and defendable thesis, however, is not always a simple task and many students will struggle with it no matter how far through their education they may be. For some, they can develop an idea for their thesis on just a quick read through of a piece of work, for many others however you can spend time reading through several times before you get a feel for the true message that the author is trying to present.
