Thesis Statement
For your thesis statement, try to mention the characters you’ll be
discussing from each work.
In addition, mention the literary elements that you will be
discussing as well.
Ex: Using characterization and theme, both works depict pairs,
George and Lennie and Amir and Hassan, who did not perceive
their worlds in the same way.
Ex: Using characterization and conflict, the works, The Glass
Menagerie and Of Mice and Men, demonstrate that no two people
have the same perspective concerning the world.
