A comparsion between a short story and another peice of artistic work

For this assignment, I want you to compare and contrast the short story(The Bloody Chamber) I provided to another literary work, film, television drama, painting or piece of music (for the sake of convenience, let us just say another artistic work). If you want, it can be more than one
work.
The objective: to show how your reading of the short story has changed or developed your
understanding of the artistic work you have chosen.
Think of this as a comparative study; you are exploring how your interaction with one artistic creation
alters in some way your interaction with another.

How to begin?
Think about the structure of both the short story I provided and the
other artistic work(s) you select:
1. What is the theme or themes?
2. How do character/plot/setting/tone/language/style communicate or help to develop the
theme(s)?
You do not have to cover all of the above; just go through the story (adding to, or

subtracting from, my own comments), and then start drawing links to the artistic work you have chosen.

Two pfds are attached, one of which is an instruction given by my professor, the other is the short stroy

1. It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

Instructions for completing the Semi-Finalist Essay
If you are typing your essay in a Word document and copying and pasting, please ensure you are within the word limit (800 words). Anything over the word limit will be cut off. While typing your essay refrain from using quotation marks and/or symbols, besides punctuation. The application does not recognize special symbols, such as: ~ " " < *

1. Consider your audience. Your essay will be read by committees comprised of university faculty, members of the business and philanthropic communities, Dorrance Scholarship Program alumni, and members of the Dorrance family.
2. Start early so you have plenty of time to write and revise.
3. Read the prompt carefully, respond to the topic given, and follow directions.
4. Write about the specific rather than the general, the concrete rather than the abstract.
5. Avoid repeating information that is already available elsewhere in your application; the essay is not a good place for lists of your accomplishments.
6. Avoid overstatements and understatements; accuracy and sincerity are best.
7. Focus on the positive; even hardships teach a lesson or make you stronger.
8. Use only words or ideas that are familiar to you. Do not use outside sources.
9. Use formal language appropriate for an academic essay.
10. Proofread, proofread, and proofread. Grammar, punctuation, spelling, and neatness matter. Ask someone else to proofread your entire application before you submit.
11. This must be your original work.

Essay Prompt
