Compare and contrast the themes and styles of the stories

As a follow-up to Friday’s in-class writing exercise, for Monday, choose two of the three stories with which we are currently working — that is, Poe’s “The Cask of Amontillado,” Hemingway’s “Hills Like White Elephants,” and Jackson’s “The Lottery” — and write 1-2 paragraphs in which you compare and contrast the themes and styles of the stories. For instance, what aspects of human nature do the authors highlight that give their stories power and significance? What is each story’s intended impact and what makes each author successful in achieving that impact? Are there common themes and techniques? These are examples. See what you can come up with!
