How to write a compare and contrast essay?

QUESTION
How to write a compare and contrast essay?
Hey! Okay for my summer reading assignment, I have to write an essay on Oedipus the King.
I have to compare and contrast one topic, a second topic, and a third topic. So I am comparing and contrasting three different things.

Can I please have a simple outline so I can organize my thoughts?
Thank you so much!

ANSWER
Topic 1
i. background info for comparison
ii. transition into next topic
Topic 2
i. background info for comparison
ii. compare to topic 1
iii. transition to last topic
Topic 3
i. background info for comparison
ii. compare to previous topics
iii. transition into contrast
Repeat

use whichever you want first, compare or contrast, the outline will work either way. then at the and make a transition into your conclusion. probably not the greatest outline, but hopefully its enough to help you!
