Comparison and contrast:Involves lining up related ideas for a detailed account of similarities and differences. It is situational, because in this kind of essay it is important to decide whether you will be concentrating on similarities or differences. In general, the more similar things are, the more you concentrate on the differences, and vice versa. If you are comparing two works by the same author, or two love poems, for example, what will most interest you will be the differences between them.
