Compare Significant of Similarities and Differences Overview
Write a 7-8 page (double-spaced) comparison essay with a research component. Your task is to present a clear thesis (an interpretation in the form of an argument) about two eligible course texts. Use one of the topics below as a starting point for your argument. As with the previous essay, you are expected to compare and contrast the texts and explain why the similarities and differences are significant. You must use textual evidence (quotations from your primary sources) and close textual analysis to support your thesis. In addition, in this essay, you must strengthen your argument by including quotations from at least two appropriate (read: credible, applicable, probably current) secondary sources. You are expected to cite all sources – primary and secondary – according to MLA style guidelines. Please save time to edit and proofread your work carefully.
Eligible Course Texts
Any winter-term text is eligible, including the films and texts that are covered after the due date.
- Compare and contrast two narratives written in the first person (e.g., Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The Handmaid’s Tale, and/or The Hunger Games). Analyze the authors’ use of first-person narration and explain why the manner of narration is important.
Compare Significant of Similarities and Differences Research Component
The research component consists of five steps:
1) Finding and reading secondary sources.
2) Assessing their merits—(how) do they help you to understand the primary texts or the topic better? Do you agree with the arguments presented? How is your thinking different from the critics’?
3) Quoting at least two appropriate secondary sources in the body of your essay.
4) Commenting on the quotations that you have provided. (Explain or contextualize the quotation, if necessary. Briefly discuss the merit of the critic’s argument. Connect the quotation to your thesis.)
5) Citing all sources according to MLA specifications in both the Works Cited list and throughout the essay using parenthetical documentation.
