ENG 4: Preparing for a Comparative Essay

Your essays are due next week. Today, we will prepare for the assignment by talking abut the early stages of planning/organizing your argument. To ensure that this approach is relevant, we will examine characters that you will need to know for your exam.

First, we need to organize into small groups. Each group will spend 5 minutes brainstorming about one of the following characters:

    Hamlet       Pi      Laura Wingfield
     Ophelia    Hagar Shipley        Amanda Wingfield  
     Gertrude         Tom Wingfield


Following the brainstorming session, you will be paired up with another group. Your goal is to compare/contrast these two characters thematically/insightfully.
