    haha sure

    I generally discuss the main argument of the two extracts in my intro and discuss the two in separate paragraphs as discussing them separately allow me to go into more detailed analysis.
    But it is easy to fall into the trap of writing two mini commentaries like this so you must have something that explicitly states the different/same effect of a certain lit. feature in both extracts.
    A clear topic sentences like "while x is used in extract 1 to create y, its effect in extract 2 is z" when you move on to discuss the other extract will suffice.
    These topic sentences will guide you to a 'comparative' essay.

    I rephrase the differences of the two extracts in one sentence in the conclusion and might add some personal response if there's time(e.g. which one I liked better).


    This method works really well for me (nothing I wrote got below a 90% so far) but might not work for everyone...
    Some of my classmates tried my way and got worse marks...
