    *Comparisons*

    We've done two essays already, and we have one to go but this one is much bigger and accounts for double the marks. I'm just wondering if anyone can help me out with ideas for my essay? What should I talk about?

    We're supposed to write about the differences and similarities in:

    Romeo And Juliet by Shakespeare
    To His Coy Mistress by Andrew Marvell
    My Last Duchess by Robert Browning
    Human Interest by Carol Ann Duffy

    Our main focus though is the presentation of women in the above works. We are supposed to compare. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You could look at several things:
    - How women are treated by men in these texts?
    - Are women given a main role?
    - Is the presentation of women similar to how women were treated when the text was written?
    - How does the Duke in 'My Last Duchess' talk about the Duchess? Positively or Negatively? Like a possession?
    - Are women portrayed as heroines or villains in the texts?
