Comparative Analysis of Two Texts

Comparative Analysis of Two Texts
Write an essay in which you trace a significant question, theme, or literary devices in two (2) of the works we have read so far and select a small handful of passages (from fiction), stanzas (from poetry), or lines of dialogue (from drama) for close analysis.
Choose any 2 of the literary works we have studied in this class, including the two plays assigned for this week and the additional poems and short-stories.
Read selected passages/stanzas and underline important sections, words, and the like. Consider the authors’ use of language (vocabulary, grammar, syntax, word choice, figures of speech, tone, style, meaning,) and how it relates both to the text as a whole and to what you claim the passage/stanza demonstrates.
For instance, in comparing the symbolism of the “caged bird” in Angelou’s poem and Glaspell’s play, you might point out that while both symbols carry gender implications, the “caged bird” at the heart of Angelou’s poem also stands for racial oppression.
You may explore how questions about gender, law, and justice are dramatized in Trifles versus how they are represented in the short-story “A Jury of Her Peers.” Which text is more effective and why?
Another possible issue to consider is the complex relationship between fathers and children in the poetry of Robert Hayden and Lucille Clifton.
Alternatively, you may want to explore the tensions between mothers and daughters in “I Stand Here Ironing” and “Everyday Use.”
The following title sums up yet another possible topic: “What Is It to Be a Woman: The Special Knowledge of Kate Chopin and Susan Glaspell.” Starting from this title, “In Praise of Strong Women,” compare the characters of Louise Mallard and Mrs. X.
Or, you may want to reflect on the personal and collective toll that war takes by putting Komunyakaa, “Facing It” side by side with the excerpt from O’Brien’s The Things They Carried.
Notice also that Oliver and Rossetti use the same controlling metaphor—of life as a journey—but to different ends.
See the “Related Works” suggestion at the end of most texts included in LIT.
