Compare Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray and Will Self’s Dorian: An Imitation based on their treatment of a literary element (like character, narration type, chronology), theme, historical event or phenomenon, or social convention. Choose one scene from each of the texts that presents this topic, and analyze them closely in order to identify and unpack a meaningful relationship between the two texts’ ideas, approaches, and/or assumptions, using details from each to support your claims. The parameters of the assignment are deliberately broad, and offer you the opportunity to think through these texts, using each to illuminate what you see in the other.
� Use your introduction to set up the basis of comparison between the two texts. It should set up careful and specific definitions of the terms that will be important in the paper, and how they emerge in the two texts you analyze. This work will lead logically into a thesis that makes a claim about how you see this element, theme, etc. working in each text.
� Find representative examples from each text, and read the passages you’ll address closely and carefully, making notes as you go. Attend to syntax, structure, figurative language, denotation and connotation in your analysis, though you needn�t go through all of these possibilities with each piece of evidence.
� Build your paper around the analysis of these representative passages. Use them to support and expand the claims made in your introduction and throughout the paper through the careful analysis of specific evidence (quotations) from both texts. Remember that each quotation you use requires explanation and analysis�we can’t assume that all readers will interpret even direct evidence in the same way.
� Be sure your essay addresses the argument you see each text making about your topic, how you see it emerging in each one, and the significance of the differences in their approaches and/or objectives.
Criteria for Evaluation
� Strong, clear thesis about the relationship between the two texts.
� Exceptionally brief summaries of the texts (1-2 sentences max) in the introduction, and only there.
� Careful analysis of quotations from the text (see 3 Step Quotation Analysis in your notes).
� Logical organization, with clear paragraph structure and transitions.
� Correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, and citation.
