Compose a critical comparative analysis of three short stories (fiction or non-fiction) Custom Essay

[meteor_slideshow slideshow=”hp2″]

Description
You will compose a critical comparative analysis of three short stories (fiction or non-fiction).

Specification
Your comparative analysis must be 2000-2500 words.

Process
Choose three short works (Fiction/Non-Fiction) from a book.

•You may choose all three stories and they are up to you. However, these stories should not be all by the same author. Also, try to avoid using the same types of stories, ie. three children’s stories; three murder mysteries by the same authors; three fairy tales, etc. You may have challenges coming up with ideas to compare/contrast.
•This story can be on any topic, but try to choose something that you are interested in.
•The stories you choose should be from a published book as it makes it easier for you to do your citations. YOU ARE NOT permitted to use a story that is just off the Internet. It must be something that has page numbers and is from an anthology or collection of stories.
•I would prefer that you use a printed source, but you can use an ‘e-book/story’, but please make sure that there are page numbers and publishing information given.
•I suggest that you avoid using the Short Fiction text
These works do not have to have similarities, but it is recommended that you bear this in mind because the assignment is to relate the stories to each other. You can choose different types of sources, but you should only have ONE of each kind.

This is just another type of critique; the only difference is that you will not be providing individual critiques on each of the stories. You will need to focus choose topics for which you would like to discuss how each story relates to those specific points. For example, you can consider:

Ex. How do the works compare in terms of subject, purpose, context, style, time period, etc. and how do they differ?
You can provide a short summary for each story; however, I advise that you provide the summary as a blend within the points you would like to discuss. You should not critique each story individually but rather focus on critiquing points that you can compare and contrast.

Remember to use APA documentation and provide an alphabetically organized and properly formatted ‘Reference’ page.
Provide a word count on your title page. You must remain within the word count range.
If you use more than one story that has been covered in the course material, you will receive a relative deduction.

Process
1.Think about any authors or genres that we have covered or that you are aware of that you find interesting.
2.To choose your three stories, think of elements that are similar or completely different. Either will help you come up with clear ideas to discuss.
3.Read the guiding questions below then scan each of the stories you have chosen to come up with initial points of comparison/contrast.

Guiding Questions:

Rhetorical

◦Who is the intended audience?
◦What is the writer’s purpose (and how does it relate to the themes?)
◦How well does the text suit its purpose and audience?
◦How has the genre affected the author’s style?
◦How do the author’s language choices/sentence length and complexity contribute to the impact of the text?
◦How well has the author created a reasonable/logical argument?
◦How well does the author persuade readers that he/she is knowledgeable, reliable, credible, and trustworthy?
◦How well does the writer appeal to readers’ emotions, sympathies, values?
◦How much does the author’s angle of vision or ‘interpretive filter’ dominate the text, influencing what is emphasized or omitted?
◦Does reading the author’s biography contribute to your understanding of the work? If so, how?
Ideas:

◦Where do I agree with the author?
◦What new insights has the text given?
◦Where do I disagree with the author?
◦What points have been overlooked or omitted?
◦What new questions/problems has the text raised?
◦What are the limitations or consequences of this text?
Reflection:

◦What personal memories/experiences does this text trigger?
◦What personal values/beliefs does this text reinforce or challenge?
◦What questions, dilemmas, or problems does this text raise for me?
◦What new insights, ideas, or thoughts of my own have been stimulated by the text?

4.Your outline should roughly follow the structure below. Make sure you are prepared to use specific examples from the works (with citations).
