    This is a good list. I would suggest, with number 1, that you start by writing a solid paragraph or two focusing on both texts.

    You’ve mentioned the fact that because your works are so contemporary, you don’t have criticism to draw on. Drawing on influences like Wright and Baldwin is a great idea. Are there any others?

    You should probably also discuss some of the most prominent reviews of both books–and public statements Coates and Rankine have made about their work (when they’ve won awards, for example).
