Choose two of the following authors who wrote about travels to the New World: Thomas Harriot, Hernán Cortes, or John Winthrop. Write an essay in which you compare and contrast your two authors’ works. Something to consider: think in terms of rhetorical strategies.

Your thesis should make an argument about the link between your chosen authors. What exactly are these men trying to convince their audiences to do, and how do they go about accomplishing that? What do their individual strategies have in common, and how do they differ?
