Write a 3000 WORD comparative essay response to the essay question. You must analyse John Keats’ ‘Ode on Melancholy’ and Alexander Masters’ ‘Stuart: A Life Backwards’ from the coursepack. Your essay must draw on secondary criticism. In each case, you should pay close attention to specifically answering the essay question, as well as the language, rhetorical features, metre (where relevant), imagery, tone, generic features, thematic patterning and anything else you feel to be of relevance of the extracts. Your analysis should draw directly and explicitly from your knowledge of the genre of odes and biographies respectively. Your essay should be grounded in critical analysis and it should be informed by and engage with critical and literary terms.
Also, your essay should focus on not just a text’s content but also its form. Be sure to include a thesis statement in your introduction. Your essay must incorporate and engage with quality secondary sources such as journal articles that support the essay’s main arguments. It is important to use a balance and good amount of quotations from both of the extracts from the coursepack.
The essay’s structure needs to be well organised and flow well together. The introduction needs to capture the reader’s attention and introduce the essay well in a unique manner. The essay’s arguments and structure need to equally divide between the two extracts of ‘Ode on Melancholy’ and ‘Stuart: A Life Backwards’, and it is important to compare and contrast how both of these extracts significantly answer the essay question. Footnotes will count towards the 3000 WORD COUNT but not the bibliography. NOTE: the files are the extracts of Keats’ ‘Ode to Melancholy’ and Masters’ ‘Stuart: A Life Backwards’ from the coursepack including the page numbers and red points where the comparative essay should focus on.
