I am writing an essay based whether non fiction can equal or surpass fiction. I chose to write that non fiction can equal fiction and my 3 support aruguments it that they both have a purpose, both contain fictional elements(specifically conflict) and they both are authentic.
For authenticity could my primary support be that the authours include specific details about time, place and settings that are true but relvant to the story? Can this be a good support for how non-fiction equals fiction.
If this helps the non fiction book i choose is : American Chica by Marie Arana and for fiction im using Hamlet and Dr Jekyll and Mr HYde.
Thanks in advance
