In the comparison essay, you will compare two or three different texts. These texts must be from different centuries/distinct periods we have discussed. For the assignment, make an argument about how these texts interact with each other: do they share themes or ideas? Do these ideas change over time? How do the later texts develop upon themes (like gender, longing, intimacy, adultery, etc.) from earlier paradigms? This paper will analyze change over time and bring your close reading skills to bear upon your chosen texts. Please be careful to use only the texts I provided. The possible themes are listed above and I hope it can be related to longing, faithful love and adultery. Please remember that the time period of the first text is earlier and the other two are later texts.
