how to decide what to focus on in a comparison and contrast essay

At this point, you have most likely created a gigantic rundown of comparison and contrasts—congrats! Next, you should choose which of them are fascinating, significant, and adequately applicable to be remembered for your paper. Ask yourself these inquiries: 

  1. What's applicable to the task? 
  2. What's applicable to the course? 
  3. What's intriguing and instructive? 
  4. What is important to the contention you will make? 
  5. What's essential or focal (and should be referenced regardless of whether self-evident)? 
  6. By and large, what's more significant—the similitudes or the distinctions? 

Assume that you are composing a paper looking on two books. For most writing classes, the way that the two of them use Caslon type (a sort of typeface, similar to the textual styles you may use in your composition) won't be significant, nor is the way that one of them has a couple of delineations and the other has none; writing classes are bound to zero in on subjects like portrayal, plot, setting, the essayist's style, and expectations, language, focal topics, and so forward. Be that as it may, in the event that you were composing a paper for a class on typesetting or on how representations are utilized to upgrade books, the typeface, and presence or nonappearance of outlines may be totally basic to remember for your last paper. 

Here and there a specific mark of comparison or contrast may be important however not horribly uncovering or intriguing. For instance, in the event that you are composing a paper about Wordsworth's "Tintern Abbey" and Coleridge's "Ice at Midnight," bringing up that the two of them have nature as a focal subject is applicable (comparisons of verse frequently talk about topics) however not appallingly fascinating; your class has most likely as of now had numerous conversations about the Romantic artists' affection for nature. Discussing the various ways nature is portrayed or the various parts of nature that are underscored may be really fascinating and show a more complex understanding of the sonnets.
