Read this passage: LADY MACBETH. Glamis thou art, and Cawdor; and shalt be What thou art promised. Yet do I fear thy nature; It
is too full o' th' milk of human kindness To catch the nearest way: thou wouldst be great, Art not without ambition, but without The illness should attend it. What thou wouldst highly, That wouldst thou holily; wouldst not play false, And yet wouldst wrongly win. Thou'ld'st have, great Glamis, That which cries, "Thus thou must do," if thou have it, And that which rather thou dost fear to do, Than wishest should be undone. Hie thee hither, That I may pour my spirits in thine ear And chastise with the valor of my tongue All that impedes thee from the golden round, Which fate and metaphysical aid doth seem To have thee crowned withal.

<h3>People captured for slavery, folks were full of misery, looked the same as the other people from Africa are factual.</h3><h3>Shed their wings, forgot about flying, who could fly kept their power are fictional.</h3>
In "The People Could Fly," by Virginia Hamilton, she presents the story about the suffering and violence of the enslaved people in a folklore genre.
She presents factual events such as 'people captured for slavery, folks were full of misery, and looked the same as the other people from Africa' to address the suffering and atrocity experienced by the African-Americans during slavery.
And at the same, the narrator adds fictional details such as 'shed their wings, forgot about flying, and who could fly kept their power' as an element of folklore in the story.
I think the best similarities of the two of them is that both writers wrote about things and events that are going on in their country and the comparison of them is that American writer wrote about war, racism and slavery, and politics in a current time while European writer are all about religions. I hope this would help
