my teacher email:
I would like you to write a five-paragraph compare essay on
“Flowers” vs. “The Flowers”.
Here are some hints to help you with three similarities to compare
the two stories:
Write your introduction giving the type of reading it is: short
stories, the titles, and the authors of each. Then introduce
the names of each protagonist/main character. Margaret
is the protagonist in “Flowers”. It’s World War 2. Tell where she comes from
and where she is staying. Myop is the main character of
“The Flowers.” Where is she living? It is in the American
South and after the Civil War.
The basic theme is that both of them lose their childhood innocence
due to horrible situations and what they see because of it- one war and the other lynching.
What they witness should come at the end of the essay as they
are the key points of each story and are what takes away the girls’
youthful innocence. This should be the final point in an essay.
Paragraph 2. They are about the same age and experience
adventure on their own with no adults with them. They are both
living in difficult times. Margaret during WW II and Myop during
the time in America that is post-Civil War but a difficult time for
African Americans in the South when they are forced into
sharecropping. They also face horrible attacks by groups
like the Ku Klux Klan that lynch Blacks.
Paragraph 3. They both go exploring nature – one at the sea and one in
the woods. But the beauty of nature (flowers, bushes, the woods,
the beach, birds, – goes away when they are confronted
with something they don’t expect to see.
Paragraph 4. They are both see something horrible. Margaret sees
the horrors of war when she walks to the beach and comes across
two dead bodies. What she witnesses takes away her innocent
childhood. Myop faces the same thing when she sees a man
who has been lynched by the Klan or a similar group. Both girls
have the innocence of their youth taken away because of what
they saw that was so horrible.
Paragraph 5. Conclusion.
