Compare/Contrast By:Jaidyn Solis The texts “Eat Your Bugs” by Miguel Vilar and Lauren Allen and “Insect Farmers...” by The Washington Post have both similarities and differences.

Various works of literatures hold common universal themes which, without the authors intention, connect theses works to each other. Being able to connect two passages, may help the reader to understand the writing on a deeper level, then if the reader had just read one of the pieces on its own. This theory can be held true to Chang-Rae Lee’s, “Coming Home Again,” and Jane Kenyon’s, “What Came to Me,” as both compositions hold a metaphorical connection between food/cooking to a parent who has passed, which also signifies the everlasting memory of each parent. “Coming Home Again” can be taken as a tribute to Lee’s mother, who unfortunately lost her battle to cancer after Lee had returned home from school.

The subject of food films that display “Otherness” to reach out to a bigger public.

This persuades the reader to think that artificial colors might be better than the other options, therefore, when Rohrig gives his reasons why artificial colors are important the reader is more likely to agree since the reader has probably already come to that conclusion.
