Structure of comparison essay:
Generally a comparison essay is used to bring into focus the meaning and specific differences and similarities between two works that share a basic common element. This shared element is the basis for comparing the two texts in the first place and should be mentioned in your essay’s introduction.
Moving beyond this basic similarity, your essay should explore a number of key points of similarity and difference that will ultimately support a claim (THESIS) about the relation between the two texts. The element they share forms a topic of discussion between them. The specific points of similarity and difference you explore in the essay body will illustrate what each text uniquely contributes to that discussion.
Keep in mind that the comparison essay is NOT just a list of similarities and differences. You will selectively examine points where the texts intersect or are meaningfully opposed to one another. In order to draw some conclusions about how each one builds a unique picture of their shared topic.
Narrow a list of parallel aspects of the two texts
Highlight subtopics and connections that seem most significant or show the strongest relationship.
Categorize and group your brainstormed list, highlight the points that seem most interesting. Think about how these connections relate to one another and what bigger picture they build.
Write a brief statement that summarizes the specific topic these texts share and what each one is uniquely contributes to it. This will become your working thesis. You can then select from your list the clearest examples to demonstrate support of your thesis and explore these in the body of the paper.
