Compare/contrast the parent/child relationships in “Everyday Use” and “Marriage Is a Private Affair,” (I attached both stories) paying particular attention to theme as well as setting and/or characterization, and make an argument about the conflicts that can exist between generations.
In brief, “an essay in comparison and contrast shows how two works are similar to and different from each other”
For this particular essay, you must demonstrate your understanding of characterization, setting, and/or theme.
Your essay must be between 750-1000 words and adhere to MLA formatting. It needs to quote directly from your chosen text(s) for support, but it should not use any secondary research.
Keep in mind that the comparison/contrast essay should not just summarize the story or stories, nor should it just state how two things are alike and/or different: the essay should move beyond that and also present an original opinion or argument based on those similarities/differences, as you see them.
