comparison and contrast essay using the short stories

Young Goodman Brown” by Nathaniel Hawthorne and

“The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson. I would like the essay to compare and contrast the “setting” and theme/Authors purpose of both stories. The “Setting” portion of the paper should address questions such as; • Where and when do the stories take place (remember to include such details as geographic location, time of year, time period, if the setting is rural or urban, etc.)?

  • Do the settings make the stories believable or credible? How does setting impact the plot of the story, and how would the plot be affected if the story took place in another setting?
  • Are the characters influenced by their setting? How might they behave if they were in a different setting?
  • What atmosphere or mood does the setting create (for example, darkness may create a mood of fear or unhappiness while light or bright colors may create one of happiness)?
  • Is the setting or any aspect of it a symbol, or does the setting express particular ideas?
  • Does setting create expectations that are the opposite of what occurs?

The Theme should adress questions like’•           What is the major theme (or themes) of each story?

  • Are the themes of the stories similar or different?
  • How does the author convey the theme (or themes) to the reader?
  • How do the stories’ themes relate to the authors’ purposes (some examples of author purposes are to entertain, to satirize, to realistically portray life’s problems, to analyze emotions and responses, and/or to communicate a moral message)?
  • What unique style, techniques, or devices do the writers use to communicate their themes?

I think the Story of Young Goodman Brown speaks of the struggle of Good and Evil in humans and religion.

The second story “the lottery” speaks of opposing tradition.

the textbook I would like to cite for the Goodman Brown story comes from Literature and Spirituality by Yaw-Adu Gyamfi and Mark Ray Schmidt. The second story came come from another book.
