  3. Compared in any way possible, or at least 3 of the six.

    Elements that you might include in your comparison include the following:
    • Theme
    • Structure of story
    • Use of figurative language, literary elements, motif, and imagery
    • Characterization
    • Element of fear
    • Historical basis

    I'll try The Cask of Amontillado

  5. Remember -- to compare is to tell how they are similar, but to contrast is to tell how they are different.

    Are you clear on your assignment?
