The essay will follow this structure Paragraph 1: The Introduction: introduce your author briefly, using cited information from your author research. Then introduce the two stories you will compare and contrast, ending with a 3-part thesis that analyzes your three chosen literary elements. Paragraph 2: Story 1/ First literary element in the thesisParagraph 3: Story 2/ First literary element in the thesisParagraph 4: Compare & contrast the use of the first literary element in both stories Paragraph 5: Story 1/ Second literary element in the thesis Paragraph 6: Story 2/ Second literary element in the thesis Paragraph 7: Compare & contrast the use of the second literary element in both stories Paragraph 8: Story 1/ Third literary element in the thesis Paragraph 9: Story 2/ Third literary element in the thesis Paragraph 10: Compare & contrast the use of the Third literary element in both storiesParagraph 11: The Conclusion: summarize your ideas about how the author uses the three elements and how these elements help to make the authors work successful.

The Reference page should list the two stories and your other sources (such as those used in the introduction and conclusion). The reference page citations should be in APA style. Minimum length: 4.5 pages + a reference page. Maximum length: 7.5 pages + a reference page. ***Remember, this paper cannot simply tell WHAT the three literary elements are.

Sample thesis statement: In The Story of an Hour and The Storm, Kate Chopin uses settings, characters, and conflicts to reveal the depth of gender bias in her time and the effects societys bias had on women. Sample topic sentence: In these stories, the setting shows the biased society of Chopins era and its negative impact on womens lives.
