Comparing Articles

Compare the two articles assigned to your group. Is there in-depth analysis or just plot summary and description?  Does the author focus on what the novel means and how it fits into the genre? Does the author compare the novel to other novels or discuss literary themes and motifs? Be ready to discuss the merits of both articles!
