Throughout our unit in the French revolution, I have found some similarities and differences between a non-fictional source, Peter Mantin’s the French Revolution, and a fictional source, Patricia Elliott’s the Pale Assassin. The word choice of these two texts is very casual, the authors use language you would use every day. Both their purposes were quite similar, it was to inform the reader that this event happened. They may be talking about the same thing but the authors have their own way of telling the reader how it happened. But there is obviously more detail in the French Revolution than the Pale Assassin because the Pale Assassin also has a story to talk about.
