Compare & Contrast
The comparative essay allows a writer to compare and contrast the features of two subjects (two people, two things, two places, two ideas, two results, etc.). Once the similarities and differences between the two subjects are researched and noted, the topic almost suggests itself, and the facts are at the writer’s fingertips. So the key to writing a compare and contrast essay is learning to do the research and organizing the information.
