I was asked to compare and contrast two authors writing styles and their use of dramatic devices. But isn't the use of dramatic devices part of their writing style? If I am missing something please explain?

    Yes, I'd say so, but of course each author will use different dramatic devices differently.

    It's a wonderful assignment because you don't have to concentrate on two aspects of each author's writing -- just the style, which includes the choice/use of dramatic devices.

    Are you clear on how to set up and organize a comparison/contrast paper?

    This is what I had thought also. Maybe I just misinterpreted this part of the assignment. Yes I know how to write this type of paper, and thank you for offering additional help. However I am to do a PowerPoint on this along with other aspects that include; their themes and conventions as well. I was just a bit confused when the assignment stated "writing styles and dramatic devices". If it was worded as "include dramatic devices used in their writing style" I may have understood it better. Thank you so much for clearing this up! =)
