Would this work for a thesis on a compare contrast essay?

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


Summer, please check out the post I just put up to your question. The above thesis is too vague, non specific. One characteristic you might look at is that Lady Macbeth is a very controlling lady; whereas, Ophelia is very easily led. Look at those sites I gave you for further ideas.

Thank you!
