RE: How to write a comparative literature essay and how to avoid the pitfalls?
Writing a comparative literature essay includes detailed analysis of the text that you are discussing. For developing high degree of interpretation you need a close, critical and careful reading practice. This will help to bring out difference and similarities between the texts in order to establish your awareness of the patterns, forms and ideological purpose of language. Write your essay in an analytical manner by structuring around your primary argument and assume that your reader is familiar with the text. So summarization is not needed. You can repeat your thesis statement in the conclusion paragraph. Hope these tips will help you.
RE: How to write a comparative literature essay and how to avoid the pitfalls?
Comparative literature helps to study literature beyond the range of any particular culture, language or periods. This helps to explore literature in association with other fields of creative and cultural production. One of the major drawback is this may cause for focusing on any particular section that will neglect the basics of essay writing .While writing the literature essay , put your attention on the argument development between paragraphs. Try to structure the essay in a way that each of the paragraph forms a step forward in your argument and build on the point made in the one previous to it.
RE: How to write a comparative literature essay and how to avoid the pitfalls?
I will suggest some useful tips for the preparation of comparative essay. Try to think for yourself and develop your own particular basic voice. Introduction part is most difficult to compose.Introduction should be capable to grab the attention of reader and should provide a clear outline of essay. Be aware of the perspectives of different critics, and avoid receiving their contentions or interpretations. You should devote yourself in developing the arguments. Main thesis can be recapitulated in the conclusion part, but at the same time conclusion section should not introduce new concepts.
