Sample Comparative Thesis

Below is a sample comparative thesis about Keats and de Castro, using one of the templates we looked at in class.

Although Keats and de Castro both explore the purpose of poetry, asking whether it will endure and whether it will bring them fame, they significantly differ in that Keats asserts the importance of the individual author, while de Castro de-emphasizes the poet’s individuality and situates her poems as part of a broader landscape of writing.
