S. Thompson ENG 1102 Compare/Contrast Essay:
Page one tells you how to think about comparing and contrasting. Page two gives prompts. Page three shows sample
organizations. The final copy of the essay is due uploaded to Blackboard NO LATER than midnight Friday, April 17.
1. English 1102 requires the student to apply the skills of essay writing learned in ENG 1101 to the interpretation of
literature. The product is a well-defended argument that explains what truths about experience the literature conveys.
2. Some reminders about compare/contrast from ENG 1101:
Purpose: What is the point of comparing and contrasting anything? To inform (help someone understand or show your
understanding of a subject), and often to evaluate (help someone choose) as well.
The literature compare/contrast task is not that different from comparing and contrasting two pair of shoes or two cars.
With shoes and cars, you might be
1. informing your audience about two types of something (two types of sport shoes, which have different
purposes, so different advantages and disadvantages)
2. evaluating which is the better (which sport shoe is better all around, if you can afford only one pair?)
With literature, you might be
1. informing your audience about how two stories/poems/plays help readers understand something important
2. evaluating which story/poem/play shows the better way for a human being to behave/live.
Thesis: Compare/contrast always deals to some degree with differences; even when you compare two things that seem
very similar, they cannot be exactly the same. The difference between them is going to be your thesis.
What do we learn about life from comparing and contrasting two works of literature?
Which work of literature tells the truth better?
3. Here is an example for you to think about. Consider these stories:
A Dolls House ; The Things They Carried; The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
The characters in each story faces a crisis that reveals a weakness in him or her. In some ways their weaknesses are
similar, and in other ways different. What can we learn from comparing and contrasting their weaknesses?
Each protagonists life changes based on how he or she responds to the crisis, but each protagonist has a different
outcome. What can we learn from comparing and contrasting how their lives change?
These stories have more than one theme in common: insecurity, love, doing the right thing (and there are others). What
can we learn about ONE of those themes by comparing and contrasting the way two different stories present the same
In a five paragraph essay, compare and/or contrast three works that have been assigned this semester: one play, one
short story, and one poem. Possible approaches:
1. Compare and/or contrast the way tthese works present the same theme.
What is the difference between how each work handles the theme? Do they present different attitudes work
toward the same theme, or do they present the same attitude in different ways?
Can you break the theme up into three parts that could each govern a body paragraph?
Alternatively, can you choose three different devices, such as setting, character, point of view, imagery/symbol,
irony, etc. that both works use to convey what the theme means?
2. Compare and/or contrast the characters. Examples:
Choose a personality trait that the characters shear. Does this trait help each character accomplish his or her
goals, or prevent each character from doing so?
Choose protagonists who face similar challenges. How does each character respond to the challenge? What
does each characters response show about him or her? What is the outcome for each character?
Choose protagonists who experience epiphanies, new understandings of life. What causes each character to
change his or her view of how life should be lived? What are the consequences for the character?
3. Compare and/or contrast the settings of two works. (This may be a more challenging topic for an entire essay).
For example, compare/contrast the settings of Young Goodman Brown and either The Things They Carried or Where
Are You Going, Where Have You Been? How does setting influence the characters actions? What do the settings
reveal about temptation and the response to temptation?
4. Compare and/or contrast how the works use symbol.
Characteristics of All Good Essays:
Thesis: states what the comparison and contrast of the two works help readers understand.
Strong topic sentences present your opinion about the literature.
Topic sentences are supported by evidence (quotations and specifics ) marshaled from each work.
Analysis explains how the reader should understand the evidence, what the evidence means.
Conclusion: makes a final comment about what value the literature discussed has for the reader.
Characteristics of Compare / Contrast Organization:
There are two ways to organize a compare/contrast essay. They are outlined below.
It is important to discuss items in the same order from body paragraph to body paragraph.
Paragraphs are effective when arranged in order of importance, with the most compelling paragraph placed last.
Topic: the theme of love in story 1 and story 2
Topic: the theme of love in story 1 and story 2
Story 1 and Story 2 show that love means A+B+C.
