A Love/Hate Relationship
Roberts, Ch. 14 -- Jerz: American Lit II (EL 267)STEP 2: "...select and articulate a common ground for discussion". He goes on to suggest that if you are writing a comparison/contrast paper, a good way to get going is to compare character to character, idea to idea, setting to setting etc. After spending the entire last 2 full days of my life plus any prep work I did last week just trying to get enough mileage out of my Paper #3 thesis, I read this by Roberts and it was like a waiting for the thunder after a lightening flash. This really, really, really makes sense, and as much as I hate to admit it, I can already see how I'm going to have to revise my paper to avoid the "lumping effect". Whoever first said "Live & Learn" should be shot! It's been a lot more like "Don't live & learn" lately.
