Comparative analysis explaining how and/or why the two pieces of reading are different and why we as a people/culture/society/time period should care.

Comparative analysis explaining how and/or why the two pieces of reading are different and why we as a people/culture/society/time period should care. This essay requires that you compare and contrast a defined thematic issue in both The Circle by Dave Eggers (the book) and one of the poems below. Must be 7 pages long and requires a minimum of three full-lenth, secondary sources (inaddition to the novel and poem; NOT a dictionary entry). At least ONE of these sources should be a peer-reviewed literary analysis of either the novel or the poem; the others can be historical or biographical. Develop a persuasive argument – a case you want to make- rather than a series of unconnected observations. Poems that can be used are:
Mending Wall by Robert Frost – Poems | Academy of American Poets
Sunday Morning by Wallace Stevens – Poems | Academy of American Poets
Flotsam – Lola Ridge – My poetic side
