Your next task is to provide an analysis comparing how two works develop a specific theme. Choose a theme (love, coming of age, good vs. evil, etc.). Pick at least one work from the Bedford text. The other work can be from literature, art, film, comic books, radio, or TV. Discuss the works, analyzing and comparing how they develop the theme you have chosen.
Your analysis should include:
1.an introduction that presents the theme you have chosen
2.the works you are analyzing and comparing,
3.a body including the analyses of the works, and
In your analysis, be sure to mention:
1.How these works develop the theme?
2.How they change the theme?
3.How the genre impacts the development of the theme?
Thanks for the Special Request! I am honored! As you prepare your own paper, I offer some ideas and research to help you:

As you then formulate your own introduction, please then state your "game plan" or thesis" to articulate your paper's main idea. A generic example might be: Edgar Allan Poe's classic poem, "Annabel Lee," and the current global movie sensation, "Slumdog Millionaitre, depict the theme of obsessive love in order to show the characters' ultimate quests and ...
