Covers relevant questions for our poetry, prose fiction and drama texts.
Please read and take notes on the below essay, submitted as part of a student’s university coursework.
How well have they evaluated the novels and drawn insightful comparisons?
For some reason this hadn’t loaded the other night – no idea why. In lieu of anyone else to pin it on, I’ll blame my cat.
Below is a link to a critical thesis on setting in the novel, and how it compares to the 2006 BBC adaptation. Ignore the parts about the TV show, but the rest is very useful.
Just a reminder that in tomorrow’s double period (Wednesday 23rd November) we will be completing a Lit. Study response on Jane Eyre and the use of setting to explore key themes – this is really to consolidate our learning on this, and hopefully ensure that we know how to tackle this type of question.
Remember, SETTING, not characterisation!
Use you feedback on the previous essay, as well as the additional tasks/reading I’ve given you to help with this.
As well as the critical piece in the previous post on SETTING, I’d like to you to also read these three pieces as part of your revision on Jane Eyre. We will be discussing these in a future lesson, so you should be familiar with them, and can even use them to support analysis in your Lit. Study responses.
Please have these read by Monday 5th December.
Below are links to the articles we read today in class, as well as a third, which is an extended thesis on how Rochester is portrayed in various adaptations of Jane Eyre – not essential to read this for class, but might be a good way of seeing the different ways the character can be interpreted.
Remember tomorrow we’re in C118 for dissertation support!
Just a reminder that, after today’s vote, the prose genre that won was FEMINIST. These are the texts that we will be studying:
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
- The Magic Toyshop by Angela Carter
- The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
You should have read all three by the time we come back after the holidays.
