Im up late writing a comparative analysis essay for my english 101 class. I have been reading on the net tips for writing this type of essay, but all the outlines seem to be nothing like what my assigned topic is.
To explain, this is what my teacher wrote for explination of the assignment:
This essay assignment consists of a discussion of the theme of marriage and male/female relationships in three stories by Kate Chopin: “The Story of an Hour,”
“Désirée’s Baby,” and “The Storm,” all of which are on Blackboard. The three stories depict women in marital relationships that are unsatisfactory, mainly because the view of women’s place in society in general and marriage in particular was extremely restrictive. In other words, women did not have the freedom to choose what they wanted to be or do in life; it was determined for them, usually by their parents. Once married, they were all too often simply glorified servants of their husbands. This type of situation can affect women in different ways: they can either rebel against it (“The Story of an Hour” & “The Storm”) or they can be completely brainwashed into believing that they are supposed to be totally submissive and subordinate to their husbands (“Desiree’s Baby”). Show how these stories reveal these different attitudes by discussing each one in relation to this theme, citing and analyzing relevant passages; then, draw some conclusions about the significance that this kind of “relationship” has on a person’s sense of who she is. There is an important issue here that I want you to think about.
This essay should be at least three (3) typed, double-spaced pages, using the MLA format for in-text citations.
On all the tutorials i have checked out, its comparing and contrasting 2 things. My topic is on 3 stories. It kind of boggles mi mind.
Does anyone have any tips? Im not trying to be a freeloader. Just want this essay to be impressive when im done.
I also understand that you may have not read Kate Chopin's stories. Im not asking what to write, more of how would you go about writing a comparative analysis on something that really isnt that black and white.
