Hy everyone!

I really need some help! I should compare Jane Austen's Sanditon with two other Austen novel: Lady Susan , and Emma.
Can somebody give me some tips, how to do this? or can somebody find me some infos about the books?
I should compare such things like: main Character?, plot?, ending is satisfactory?, quotations....etc.

Please help me!!!!!

    I think I would start with the setting, and how the main character is placed in that setting. WHat is the main characters delimina, and how does she use her character to resolve it.

    Infos? I would read the books, and take notes. Why would you use someone else's notes.

    Have fun.

    Once you have the books read and your points of comparison pretty much figured out, the following information may help you write your paper.


    Whenever you are writing a comparison/contrast paper (paragraph, essay, research paper), you need to plan it out very carefully on paper first.

    Try this:

    1. Write all the information about one of your topics on one page.
    2. Write all the information about the other topic on another page.
    3. Then put them together in this order:

    1. Intro
    2. All about topic A
    ~~~2A. detail 1
    ~~~2B. detail 2
    ~~~2C. detail 3
    ~~~2D. detail 4
    ~~~2E. detail 5
    3. All about topic B
    ~~~3A. detail 1
    ~~~3B. detail 2
    ~~~3C. detail 3
    ~~~3D. detail 4
    ~~~3E. detail 5
    4. Concl.

    The number of details for each topic will vary depending on your main points. I would include comparisons (how they are similar) in the introduction and conclusion, but sections 2 and 3 and all those details will be stating and explaining how they are different.

    There are two recognized patterns for writing comparison/contrast papers. One is casually referred to as "zig-zag,” but can be very confusing for the reader if you don’t use transitions effectively. The other is topic-by-topic (which is what I've outlined above) and is much easier for the reader to follow.

    See http://leo.stcloudstate.edu/acadwrite/comparcontrast.html for further help with comparison/contrast writing.

    Once you have organized your information, please repost if you’d like feedback from someone here.
