A2 English Lit coursework.. Starting uni is full of surprises: Start new discussion Reply. Karlisha12 Follow 0 followers 2 badges Send a private message to Karlisha Follow 1 I'm kinda struggling with what to say about the authors, like how do i talk about how Shakespeare created Iago's personality traits you know?
And is it best to have separate paragraphs for each text or weave them in? Follow 2 Original post by Karlisha12 okay so, I have a word essay for English Lit, this is my question: Follow 3 Original post by The Empire Odyssey Definitely, under no circumstance write about your texts separately.
That will not even get you into Band 2! You need to weave your texts in each paragraph as one of the most marks will come from AO3 which is comparing texts for connections. I've only studied Othello so I can give you help on that. Do you have you main three points that you will be writing about?
Something like that anyway. My three points were 1. Reason for corruption Iago's jealousy of not having the position of being in command of an army or something , 2. Effect of corruption on that character or others Othello's paranoia, his abuse to Desdemona 3. The consequences of corruption and morality Death of Othello and Desdemona and Iago still lives.
That's how I did it. Get three points and get quotes from each text. You are studying a character, not a person. You must see the character as a literary figure and not as if you are doing a psychological character profile.
You are examining the literature merit of Iago's actions of power which effect's the play's outcome drastically. So what he does: So you have his manipulative side where he is always by Othello's side whispering things into his ear, making this and that up to break Othello's "armour" and this could be symbolised as Iago being the devil's advocate, it creates an alarming figure that Iago will stand by and get into people's head and break them down for his own hedonistic pleasure.
From showing this, you can then link this to how this is shown as powerful. Then you can bring in context with what Elizabethan society thought of religion the devil, temptation, deadly sins etc etc.
That's A04 which plays a bigger part at A2 level. You should have 2 core texts one will be the Shakespeare and the 2nd one will be up to you and then the 3rd text with be your partnered text which you will use as a reference on how the 3rd text has illuminated your response and understanding of the other 2 texts you discuss is way more critical detail. Also to get high, high marks defo use critical analysis theories and see what critics say.
You will get so many marks for this. Follow 4 Original post by alishahussain I was just wondering if you could help me as I am currently doing my English coursework too on a topic similar to yours and on similar texts. And my question is basically along the lines of "Compare and contrast the presentation of immorality in the texts". Although, I am not sure whether the question has to be more specific than this.
Anyway, my points were: Though, I am thinking of changing the last point to something like the effects of immorality on the protagonists.
So I was just wondering whether you could give me any pointers which may help me because you did a similar theme and texts. I am really worried that my points aren't related to my question and that there isn't really a process and argument.
Also, my teacher said to include a counter argument. So I was just wondering what your one was, if you had one? Follow 5 You could definitely get in a paragraph about female influence.
