An essay is, generally, a piece of writing that gives the author's own argument — but the definition is vague, overlapping with those of an article , a pamphlet , and a short story. Essays have traditionally been sub-classified as formal and informal. Formal essays are characterized by "serious purpose, dignity, logical organization, length," whereas the informal essay is characterized by "the personal element (self-revelation, individual tastes and experiences, confidential manner), humor, graceful style, rambling structure, unconventionality or novelty of theme," etc. [1]

Essays are commonly used as literary criticism , political manifestos , learned arguments , observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. Almost all modern essays are written in prose , but works in verse have been dubbed essays (e.g., Alexander Pope 's An Essay on Criticism and An Essay on Man ). While brevity usually defines an essay, voluminous works like John Locke 's An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Thomas Malthus 's An Essay on the Principle of Population are counterexamples. In some countries (e.g., the United States and Canada), essays have become a major part of formal education. Secondary students are taught structured essay formats to improve their writing skills; admission essays are often used by universities in selecting applicants, and in the humanities and social sciences essays are often used as a way of assessing the performance of students during final exams.

    Start of by introducing both texts. eg. There are many parallels and contrasts within "text one" composed by Author One and "text two" by Author Two. The parallels shown are Parallel one. parallel two etc, where as their differences are difference one, difference two etc. Then go into detail regarding both texts ie when they were made, where they were made, what was going on in the world when they were made, possible influences on the authors etc. then explain how these have impacted on the similarities and differences. the concluding paragraph should echo the opening.

    Writing an essay that asks you to compare and contrast depends on your understanding of the things that you should compare. In showing the similarities between two things, it is significant to recognize the characteristics that both things share. Writing a contrast essay requires showing how two things are different. To show how two things are different, you may highlight one attribute of the first thing which the second object lacks. You may also try to write down several visible physical differences between the two objects.

    Some obvious areas to compare and contrast are: * The economy. (What s big and what s not. What s growing and what isn t.) * Labor laws and the way workers are treated. * How the Presidency functioned. And/or how Congress functioned. * Health issues. (People are living longer now, but have a lot more health problems.) * Popular music. * Education philosophies and practices. (You want a paper your teacher will really pay attention to? Cover this topic in your compare-and-contrast essay.) * Religious beliefs and practices. Any of the items above would work well for a compare-and-contrast essay. There are plenty of things that are similar, as well as plenty of things that are very different. I d probably at least include educational philosophies and practices--both because there are lots of things to compare and contrast and because it s likely to get your teacher s attention. Hope that helps.
