Omparative essay of The Cut-Glass bowland Benediction By F. Scott Fitzgerald
Essay 4, Comparative Analysis. You are already familiar with comparison and contrast from ENL 101. Comparison is showing likenesses, and contrast is showing differences. For this essay you will choose two poems, or two stories, or two plays, or two movies to analyze in comparison to each other. You need to find two selections that have some kind of basis of comparison, like both stories being about failed marriages, or two poems about coming of age, or two movies that feature bumbling detectives.
You can analyze according to an element, like theme or setting or characterization, or you can analyze according to the critical approaches, or some combination. Just keep in mind that youre analyzing, not just identifying the similarities and differences between your two subjects.
