I would like you to focus your comparative analysis on the struggle for female autonom. You will probably use the “compare and contrast” technique in your analysis of the two texts, along with explication and interpretation. I do, however, expect that you will make some sort of comparative argument regarding the similarities and differences between the two works. Are they more or less alike in their treatment of a particular theme? How do they differ and why is this difference significant? You may choose to incorporate up to two outside sources in your paper (though you are not required to do so) but these sources should support, not replace your own analysis and not take up a bulk of your paper.
The paper should be typed and double-spaced (no larger than 12pt. font), with one-inch margins, according to MLA format.
You will write on the following works: Sandra Cisneros’s Woman Hollering Creek; and Patricia Cardoso’s Real Women Have Curves.
