Good evening.

I suggest you look at the above posts to get an idea of what others are doing, and then set down to do your own outline. Begin by locating examples of how "everything" is seen as glamorous and corrupted. How about character traits? The houses they live in? The way Gatsby and the Buchanans get their money? Gatsby's life is seen as corrupt because he rubs elbows with criminals; the Buchanans as glamorous yet they destroy everything they touch. What about Jordan? How is her life or character traits attractive yet corroded? Brainstorm a little bit, and then we can go from there.

Comparing betrayal in Hamlet and The Great Gatsby

For my essay I am comparing betrayal in the two novels. I am having troubles thinking of what to write for each of the body paragraph. Would I do different types of betrayal or betrayal between characters? If so which types/ characters?

What you write in your body paragraphs depends on what you establish in your thesis sentence. Writing your body paragraphs before your thesis is like driving your car without putting the key in the ignition. It's not going to work. For help on creating a good thesis, think about what your argument is. If you don't have an argument yet, start off by creating a venn diagrams, focusing on either the main characters or the characters that interest you the most. Hope this feedback serves you well. Best of luck with your essay.
