    Well youve managed to avoid telling us which books and what question.

    Obviously read and understand the books.

    Make notes based on your mystery title. You must know what to look for as you chose the title. themes characters etc, whatever the title says.
    Read additional articles on the books for ideas but dont plagiarise and reference them properly.

    Write the essay. You might run a detailed plan past your tutor.

    Mr Gray has good ideas= on how to write a comparative essay.

    What exam board? I did AQA and we had to use a provided critical anthology to analyse our texts in conjunction with the theory. However my advice would be to plan it out, write a draft, receive some feedback from your teacher/tutor and keep re-drafting until you're happy with your work.

    Aye! I did the Bell Jar in my coursework this year for Edexcel and compared it to Plath's anthology Ariel to do with a feminist reading. Good luck 🙂
