Using Literary Elements, Can You Compare And Contrast Abigail Adams' Letter To Her Daughter With Jean De Crevecoeur's Essay From Letters From An American Farmer.

  • Literature -

    Why in the world are you capitalizing the first letter of every word in your sentence?

    No, I cannot compare them because I have not read them. But if you have read both of these works, you should be able to do so.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    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.

    I would suggest that you take two sheets of paper; write the literary elements on each. Then go through those pieces of literature and note the parts that relate to those elements. Then you will have a basis for your paper.
