Critical Thinking

posted by .

The idea behind a comparative essay is, quite simply, that you take two or more things or ideas and compare their points of similarity or difference. For your second assignment in the Essay Series, create a comparative essay. In 1-2 pages, compare the following proverbs:
•Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we may die!
•Early to bed and early to rise makes one healthy, wealthy and wise.

As this is intended as a purely comparative essay, avoid favoring one proverb over another. Instead, your purpose is to analyze each mindset as objectively as possible and compare the relative strengths and weaknesses of both points, regardless of your personal opinion regarding them.
