    ok for my A2 english lit coursework, i am doing a comparison between 2 texts. after speaking with my tutor i have decided to compare the roles of women, particularly in marriage, in society. I know I am going to look at Jane Eyre, but I can't choose between Pride and Prejudice or Rebecca. I haven't read Rebecca yet, but have been advised that both of these books would enable in-depth analysis. What do you think i should choose?

    anybody read Rebecca??? :confused:

    In P&P there are a number of women and marriages to chose from i.e. Elizabeth/Jane. Rebecca is more one women trying to fit in with her husband's life whilst seemingly unfullfilling the shoes of Rebecca (Her husband's 1st wife- we do not know the name of the central character) to the servants. There are also the references to Rebecca which i won't fill you in on because they will ruin the whole story for you but can help with your coursework.

    So if you want variety- Pride and Prejudice but if you want an in depth character 'analysis' then Rebecca i would say.
