Task – to write an essay investigating a theme central to both a course novel  or play and also central to a movie or novel of your choice.

 

 

Details – 

 

1.   choose a theme to investigate.

The 12 Most Common Themes in Literature

  1. Man Struggles Against Nature: Man is always at battle with human nature, whether the drives described are sexual, material or against the aging process itself.

2.     Man Struggles Against Societal Pressure: Mankind is always struggling to determine if societal pressure is best for living. Check out books like Revolutionary Road or Mrs. Dalloway for examples of characters who know how society says they should live, but feel society's dictation is contrary to what makes them happy.

3.     Man Struggles to Understand Divinity: Mankind tries to understand and make peace with God, but satisfaction is elusive and difficult.

4.     Crime Does Not Pay: A popular theme played out in books throughout time is the concept that honesty is honored and criminals will eventually be caught. Crime and Punishment and "The Telltale Heart" are two stories written on this theme.

5.     Overcoming Adversity: Many books laud characters who accept a tough situation and turn it into triumph. Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind exemplifies a shrewd person who finds a way to come out on top despite failed relationships and an economic depression after the Civil War.

6.     Friendship is Dependant on Sacrifice: This is the idea that you can't have friends if you don't act like a friend.

7.     The Importance of Family: Sacrifices for family are honored and explored, as are the family bonds that survive adversity.

8.     Yin and Yang: Just when you think life is finally going to be easy, something bad happens to balance it all out. 

9.     Love is the Worthiest of Pursuits: Many writers assert the idea that love conquers all, appealing to the romantic side of us.

10.  Death is Part of the Life Cycle: Literary works with this theme show how death and life and intricately connected.

11.  Sacrifices Bring Reward: Sacrifices and hard work pay off in the end, despite the challenges along the way.

12.  Human Beings All Have the Same Needs: From Montagues to Capulets in Romeo and Juliet or the characters in S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders, book after book asserts that rich or poor, educated or dumb, all human beings need love and other basic needs met

 

 

2. choose one core novel – Frankenstein by Mary Shelley or Macbeth by William Shakespeare

 

3. choose a film or novel to use that also identifies with the chosen theme (It cannot be the film version of one of these two texts).

 

4. write your paper showing how each of your chosen texts fulfill the requirements of your chosen theme.

 

Length – 1250 words max.

The Comparative Paragraph  Follow this paragraph format when writing essay

 

 

A comparative work shows the relationship (similarities and/or differences) between or among two or more people, places, actions, ideas or things. Even when the focus is on differences, the subjects of the comparison must have something in common. You must state your topic sentence near the beginning and establish what will be compared.

 

There are two organizational methods than can be used when writing a comparative work:

 

·               The point-by-point method, in which one characteristic of the first subject is explained and then compared with the same characteristic of the second subject.    

·               The block method, in which all of the characteristics of one subject are explained before moving on to an explanation of the characteristics of the second subject.                   

 

Sample Paragraph: point-by-point

 

Now, of course, I knew that it was going to be as difficult making an income as a freelance editor as it was being an editor on staff at a magazine, if not more so. I would be at home hustling editing contracts via telephone, while everyone else spent their mornings at the office gabbing over endless cups of coffee. I sometimes resented having to work so hard to make a living, while my old colleagues on staff sat in meetings, went to conferences, and attended company luncheons. But I never envied them on their way to work on cold, dark winter mornings. And I wondered how many of them would have gladly switched places with me as I worked outside on my patio in summer, while they looked longingly out their office windows.

                                                                                                                                                           

Sample Paragraph: block method

 

Now, of course, I knew that it was going to be as difficult making an income as a freelance editor as it was being an editor on staff at a magazine, if not more so. I would be at home hustling editing contracts on the telephone and I sometimes resented having to work so hard to earn a living. On the other hand, I didn’t envy my old colleagues on their way to work on cold, dark winter mornings. They could spend as much time as they wanted to gabbing over coffee and going to meetings, conferences, and company luncheons; but I wonder how many of them would have gladly switched places with me as I worked outside on my patio in the summer?

 

Useful Transition Words:

 

Comparison Words: also, besides, as well, again, in addition, likewise, similarly, both

Contrast Words: however, but, although, instead, whereas, yet, nevertheless

 

 

Writing the Comparative Paragraph Step by Step

 

Here is one logical process you can use to get good results when writing a comparative essay.

 

1.                  Study the given topic, and then plan your topic sentence, especially the dominant impression.

2.                  List all your ideas for points that could be compared and contrasted.

3.                  Choose the three or four most important points from your list, and put them in order.

4.                  Decide which organizational method you want to use.

5.                  Write at least one complete sentence for each of the points you have chosen from your list.

6.                  Write a concluding statement that summarizes the main points, makes a judgment, or emphasizes what you believe is the most important point.

7.                  Finally, copy your sentences into standard paragraph form.
