Continue conquering comparative essays in this lesson as we break down a theme-based question. Not only will we show you how to break the question down, but we’ll also show you how to formulate a strong thesis (argument). Enjoy our easy examples from a comparative study of two speculative fiction novels: Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go.
In today’s lesson, we’ll show you three different structures for a comparative essay: block, alternating and integrated. We’ll guide you through each of these essay structures using the same question and thesis from our previous lesson. Our easy, step-by-step guide includes vibrant visuals and relatable examples from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go. This lesson will give you the confidence to choose which comparative essay structure works best for you!
