Question description

Comparing Short Stories

Write an essay comparing and contrasting either the plots, characters, or both of 2 of these 3 short stories of your choosing.  (“The Jewels” by Anton Chekhov, “How Much Land Does a Man Need?” by Leo Tolstoy, or “The Bet” by Anton Chekhov)  Each of these stories are examples of realism.

* I need a Rough Draft and a Final Draft.

The essay should be written in this framework:


Use a clear thesis statement to identify the issue, key points, and your focus on similarities, differences, or both.

Provide background information for the historical period.

Name the titles and authors of the literature. 


Develop each of the key points of your thesis.

Use literary evidence and elaboration as support for each of your key points.

Clarify your method of organization - block, point-by-block, or a combination.


Summarize the key points about each work of literature.

Restate your thesis.

Close with a final, dramatic statement.
