    Re: help with essay

    I am not familiar with either of them, but the universal approach is to draw two columns on a sheet of paper, one headed 'Yellow Wallpaper writer' and the other headed 'Aurora Leigh poet'. Then list in each column the ways the two differ or are similar: their characters, their ideas, their approaches to their art, their experiences, their ends, how sympathetically and in what way the actual writer portrays them, etc.

    If you can do that, we can take a look at your list and perhaps offer suggestions for the next step.
