Nature

Economic Class

Truth

Innocence

Experience

Love

Process:

1) you could pick the two texts you enjoy the most and identify a common topic/issue, or you could pick a topic and then find the texts to fit. 

2)  You should answer the following questions: What do texts A and B have to say about topic X?  What is similar and what is different about the texts’ treatment of the topic X?    Basically, you are exploring how a topic takes on new meanings under different historic or literary circumstances—how the same topic is explored differently by two different authors to arrive at different artistic ends. 

3)  You need ONE thesis/conclusion about ONE topic; do NOT write a paper with a thesis for each of the two works you use…you need a unified thesis that connects/synthesizes your reading of both texts.

characters and includes new dimension to the stories. These stories might be viewed as
persuasive instances of feminist literature because they can shed light on the strangeness of a
patriarchal society, where ladies do not have the permission to be self-sufficient and
autonomous. The aim of this paper is to describe the encounters of women who are firmly not
satisfied with their marriages since they crave for independence and personal dignity, which are
restricted to them.
These are the two things that the Minnie and Mrs. Mallard lack. However, both ladies respond to
their struggles in different ways. In Particular, Mrs. Mallard in the story of an hour, does not
want to acknowledge that she is happy to live without the presence of her husband. She refuses
to address that marriage might turn into a problem for an individual. For instance, whe...
