compare and contrast 101

Please choose ONE of the following prompts. Your final paper should be 5-6 pages in Courier 12 point font, double-spaced, with one-inch margins. (no fewer than 1100 words, or your grade will be penalized!) You will have a thesis statement and three supporting claims (in the argument style described in the video lecture) due on Sunday April 12 in the Assignments folder. It will be due in final form in the Assignments folder on Desire2Learn on FRIDAY APRIL 24, so any plagiarism will be caught either by me or the computer. You are not allowed to use outside sources in this paper; your argument will be your own original interpretation of the texts. Any paper that does not completely answer your chosen prompt, addressing both texts will not receive credit for the assignment.

  1. Construct an argument about the social value of women in Kafka’s The Metamorphosis and Aidoo’s “Two Sisters.” In your thesis statement, you should compare and contrast the social value of women in each work, in the way that I will show you in the lecture video. For a strong paper, you should consider the difference between what the characters think of women and how the author is portraying the value of women. You must use quotations from the works as evidence for your claims.
