I need help constructing a thesis statement for a compare and contrast essay over Ophelia and Lady Macbeth. Please help me get started!



Would this work?

Lady Macbeth and Ophelia both compare and contrast with their viewpoints and personalities.

Check out these sites on those two characters. Chose the
characteristic(s) that you think to be most comparable or contrasting.
Then you will have your thesis statement. You can choose at least two instances in each play when this characteristic is evidenced.

Lady Macbeth

We will be happy to proofread and make further suggestions

I reposted my thesis on top where it says English 4. Can you please take a look at it?
