Make sure the thesis is specific.
    • Meh: “Macbeth can be compared to Hilter”
    • Meh: “Macbeth and the Joker are similar”
    • Meh: “While they may look different, Macbeth and Hitler are very similar”
    • Meh: Macbeth can be compared and contrasted to the Joker.”
    • Better: “Both Mabeth and Napoleon Bonaparte resemble tragic heros who made similar decisions in their lives; however, Napolen’s end was more tragic because he had good intentions while Macbeth’s were evil”
    • Better: “Although their treatments after death were different, Macbeht and Michael Jackson are similar because of their early fame and how they were both misunderstood as their fame increased”
