A2 Gothic (AQA). Practice essays?

Discussion in 'English' started by gingerburn, Mar 2, 2011.

  1. Here's my two cents: these are all geared towards Wuthering Heights, but they can easily be adapted for other texts, I'm sure.

    ? Consider the view that the violence in Wuthering Heights is excessive.
    ? To what extent do you think Brontë presents hell as a mental rather than a physical state in Wuthering Heights?
    ? ?In the world of Wuthering Heights extremes of behaviour are presented as the norm and moderation is neither known nor desired.? To what extent do you agree with this view of the novel?
    ? Hindley describes Heathcliff as a ?hellish villain?. Do you think Heathcliff is merely portrayed as a ?hellish villain??
    ? ?The novel?s methods may be supernatural, but its concerns are social.? To what extent do you agree with this view?
    ? Is love in Wuthering Heights anything more than an infantile passion?
    ? ?Wuthering Heights? terrifying claustrophobia in arises from the novel?s constant duplication of names, places and identities.? To what extent do you agree with this reading of the novel?

    I have the Jan paper.
    'Macbeth': 'The violence in 'Macbeth' is so excessive that it ceases to have any effect on the audience.' To what extent do you find the violence in the play excessive?
    What are your other texts?
