Did your teacher give you this as an assignment? I find it a bit like mixing up apples with oranges.

Anyway, here goes....

  • Both are written in metered verse.
  • Both have supernatural elements, including disturbances in weather as signs of disapprobation from Heaven.
  • Both deal with guilt and remorse and the need for atonement.
  • Both borrow elements of Greek tragedy.
  • Both are classics, with universal appeal.
