In a 2 page essay, compare and contrast (F. Scott Fitzgerald, “Winter Dreams”) and (“Ernest Hemingway, “The Snows of Kilimanjaro”)
Determine a clear and manageable topic you will use as the basis for your comparison and contrast essay.
–As you write the essay, stay focused on your chosen topic. Do not attempt to cover too much ground; do not re-hash the obvious. Instead, zero in on a unique point of comparison/contrast (characters, setting, theme, use of specific details, symbols or images).
Draft a one-sentence thesis statement that argues your point. Then develop that thesis through the paragraphs that follow. The last paragraph should be a conclusion in which you tie everything together.
Remember always to give focused, specific support as you discuss similarities and differences in the stories’ treatment of the issue you have chosen to write about.
