Components of a great comparative essay

A solid comparative essay includes several key components which allow you to focus your efforts on the purpose of the topic exploration in a clear and concise format. We have studied the ideal formats for comparative essays extensively, allowing us to provide reliable advice and recommendations for constructing an exemplary document.

Components of a comparative essay
 
The three critical aspects of a comparative essay are the framework, frame of reference, and the comparative model. These three help define the thesis statement.
Components of a comparative essay

Key components

  • Framework
  • Frame of reference
  • Comparative model
  • Clear thesis

The sections below explain each component in more detail.

  • 1Determining the correct framework

     

    In order to set yourself up for success, you must determine the conceptual framework of your comparative essay.

     

    Comparative essays are typically approached in one of two ways: a traditional compare and contrast model or a keyhole framework.

    • Compare and contrast. A traditional compare and contrast method is utilized when two topics are compared equally, through an analysis of similarities or differences.

      The goal of this approach is typically to find differences in two similar items or similarities in two items which are typically considered unrelated.

    • Keyhole framework. The keyhole framework is utilized when a single topic is used to examine a second topic in more detail.

      In this framework, a detailed account of the initial topic is used to build a larger, more focused analysis of the second topic.

  • 2Establishing the frame of reference

     

    A frame of reference typically consists of a common theme which you will use to create the comparison between two topics.

     

    Also known as the context of comparison, this includes focusing on themes like:

    • A founding idea
    • A specific query
    • A problem which both topics can be related to for comparison purposes

    The frame of reference helps to focus the essay on a specific concept, eliminating the broad comparison and concentrating on the details.

  • 3Clearly conveying the comparative model

     

    Once the frame of reference is established it is further defined by the comparative model.

     

    This model provides the criteria by which the topics will be measured. Using the topic of medical testing vs. animal rights, the following comparative model would apply:

    • Frame of reference: ethical considerations
    • Comparative model: conflicting opinions on the ethical theory that should be used to reach a conclusion

    A great comparative essay thus clearly communicates the exact comparative model that is being used in the analysis.

  • 4Stating a clear thesis

     

    Once the first three portions have been decided, creating a thesis which encompasses the topic, framework, reference, and comparison model will convey the purpose of the essay to the reader.

     

    Often, this portion of the essay will be underlined in order to emphasize its importance. The thesis should be followed by a brief outline of the essay, including:

    • The background of both topics
    • The connection between the two topics
    • The final comparison of the two topics

    Some essays will conclude with the decision or opinion of the author, while others will leave the decision up to the reader.

    • Rules to follow
    • Compare the respective items
    • Provide a frame of reference
    • Identify each position
    • Avoid being too general
    •  

    Example thesis

    While some argue that there is no suitable substitute for animal testing, others argue that alternatives can be found and that the laws in place to not do enough from an ethical standpoint.

     
     

If your comparative essay has these critical elements, then you are ready to move on to the next portion: producing the final document.

Step-by-step guide for producing a comparative essay

When creating your comparative an outline is critical to maintaining the correct format and flow of the paper. When writing a solid comparative essay, the structure of the information and argument must be presented clearly and in the right order so that the topics can be established and background information can be presented accurately so that the argument is easy to follow.

The goal of the essay is to either establish a case for one topic or the other or inform the reader of the information necessary to discern the two topics - and the disparities/similarities between them.

Step 1: Selecting a relevant topic

Picking the right topic is the first (and most deceivingly simple) step to complete.

Although many topics can be compared, the best selections are ones where a clear framework and frame of reference can be established. A few examples of topics are listed below for reference:

  • Abortion: Pro-life vs. Pro-choice
  • Violence in movies: 1966 vs. 2016
  • Theories in ethics: Virtue ethics vs. utilitarianism

Click here for additional help with picking essay topics.

Step 2: Create a detailed outline

Once you have established a topic, you will want to create a detailed outline (or plan) for the essay.

This will not only include the formatting and sequencing of the paper, but also indicate the key areas of how to produce a solid essay. While much of the extended outline can be bullet points, the five main areas should be written in sentence format to guide you through the writing process.

Below is an example outline for a comparative essay:

  • 1. Topic introduction
    • a. Framework
    • b. Frame of reference
    • c. Comparative model
    • d. Thesis statement
  • 2. Background information
    • Topic A
    • Topic B
    • Relationship between topics A and B
  • 3. Comparison
    • a. Similarities
    • b. Disparities
    • c. Theory
    • d. Conclusion

If you need more information on how to produce essay outlines, see our help section page on essay planning.

Step 3: Research and record

When writing a comparative essay, it is always advantageous to complete the research ahead of time.

Solid comparative research will unearth a wealth of information and conflicting arguments which can be overwhelming. Spending some time educating yourself on both topics by reading collected literature will help you to sort through the information and choose the facts most relevant to your frame of reference.

Step 4: Organize research points

Once you are comfortable with the topic and the comparative model which you have chosen, use the outline to fill in the additional information.

Choosing the following research points will allow you to adequately support your comparison:

  • Key quotes
  • Experts
  • Background information

Listing these points, with corresponding references, will give you a solid foundation for finishing the essay writing process. All that is left to do is finish the writing by filling in the blanks on your outline.

If you followed all of the steps listed above, you should have a robust comparative essay that is ready to be peer-reviewed or edited.

Other tools to help you finish your comparative essay

Finding adequate research materials can be difficult when needing current scholarly evidence for a comparative essay. Search engines such as Google Scholar and the Directory of Open Access Journals can help you in finding free resources. Also, often your campus library will provide membership access to additional databases.

Once your research is complete, utilizing sites such as EasyBib or CiteThisForMe can be extremely helpful in understanding the format needed for different reference styles. Some of these sites even provide originality scans through Turnitin or Copyscape.

Finally, Grammarly is a free online service which can scan your essay for grammar, punctuation, correct word usage, and many other common mistakes made when constructing a paper of any kind.
