Pick two of the short stories we read this semester and compare and contrast their take on a theme or subject that interests you. This is similar to the reading responses you have done for class but longer and more formal. The goal is to put two works of art in conversation with each other and to see what similarities and differences they have. Therefore, you should pick two works that you feel have different things to say about a subject.
Note: You may not use a pairing from a Reading Response. E.g., you can write about “Sonny’s Blues” alongside any other story than “Bullet in the Brain” (and vice versa), but your paper can’t be an expansion of your already submitted reading response.
You may employ outside non-fiction sources you would like (please use citations for these), but the core of the essay should revolve around two stories.
Your comparison should look at a single theme or subject. Examples:
You could look at the way trust in romantic relationships is explored in “Jealous Husband Returns in the Form of Parrot” by Robert Olen Butler and “Popular Mechanics” by Raymond Carver
