It is easily seen that Don Quixote and Aldonza exist as opposites. Compare and contrast these two characters’ views on the themes of courtly love, life (as it is versus how it should be), and reality versus fantasy.

Pattern: The Point-by-Point Method (Integrated)
For each argument about CHARACTER A and CHARACTER B compare and or contrast side by side. You will need to have one quotation or specific example for each character. In the next paragraph, move to the next argument, and repeat the pattern.
Sample body paragraphs:
TOPIC SENTENCE (for both A and B)
First discuss CHARACTER A: context, support in the form of a quote/example, significance
Then discuss CHARACTER B: context, support in the form of a quote/example, significance
Show the similarities and or differences between the two, linking back to argument and essentially, the thesis
Transition sentence linking to next argument
Repeat the pattern for each paragraph; however, in your last paragraph, use a concluding sentence, not a transition.
– Compare according to a single organized idea.
– Use specific and relevant examples for support.
– Give equal treatment to both characters that you are discussing.
– Always lead with the same work or character to create coherence and unity.
– Use transitional words or phrases to help the reader understand the similarities and differences in your subject.
– Conclude your paper by restating your thesis, summarizing the main points, and give the reader the final ‘so what’ of the major similarities and/iquor differences that you discussed.
