Compare/Contrast Thesis Statements


Example 1 combined

Example 1: Combined

While both passages discuss the same subject, Passage 1 objectively portrays the Okefenokee Swamp simply as a “primitive” swamp and “wildlife refuge”; and Passage 2 subjectively portrays the swamp as a “primeval,” “hellish zoo” through diction, tone, and syntax.


Example 2 parallel

Example 2: Parallel

While Passage 1 employs concise diction, a neutral tone, and loose sentence structures to objectively portray the Okefenokee Swamp simply as a “primitive” swamp and “wildlife refuge,” Passage 2 employs cacophonous diction, a negative tone, and loose sentence structures to subjectively portray the swamp as a “primeval,” “hellish zoo.”


Topic sentence 1

Topic Sentence 1

Passage 1 uses concise diction, which produces a rather technical view of the Okefenokee Swamp; however, Passage 2 employs cacophonous diction, which produces a repulsive view of the swamp.


Topic sentence 2

Topic Sentence 2

Through a neutral tone, Passage 1 offers an objective view of the Okefenokee, while the negative tone of Passage 2 evokes the undesirable, subjective view of the swamp.


Topic sentence 3

Topic Sentence 3

Both passages employ loose sentence structures to emphasize and present their distinct views of the Okefenokee Swamp: Passage 1 to form an objective view, Passage 2 to form a subjective view.
