Uh, I'm having a serious block on my English Lit Coursework. Like, really, I've been trying to do it for a year. I don't go to a particularly academic school, so all the teachers assume that because I'm predicted an A* I don't need any help, and I really don't get on with my English teacher.
The main problem is my pre-1914 prose essay. I've got three paragraphs but I really don't know where to go next. Somebody please help me, it's being sent to the exam board in two days, and I'm really worried I'm going to fail. I need at least an A as I want to go to Cambridge and I'm not taking English A level.
This is my essay so far;
Please somebody help me, this problem is making me really stressed and affecting my health & performance in my other subjects.How Does Conan Doyle Present the Concept of Propriety and Family Honour in British Society Through The Descriptions of Elsie Cubbit in ‘The Adventure of the Dancing Men’?
In the time that Arthur Conan Doyle set ‘The Adventure of the Dancing Men’, the concept of family honour was still very important in British society. Conan Doyle portrays this effectively through his descriptions of the character of Elsie Cubbit.
Although we never come into direct contact with her, Elsie is possibly the most important character, aside from Holmes, in the story, as it is her past that sparks the whole fiasco. Indeed, the disaster could have been averted had she not adhered strictly to her wish to save her husband’s face.
In ‘The Adventure of the Dancing Men’, Holmes is presented with an intriguing set of code by one Hilton Cubbit, of Norfolk, which he claims is distressing his wife. Holmes manages eventually to decipher the code, but too late, as he arrives in Norfolk to find the couple dead. He does, however, manage to capture the murderer by utilising the code to set him a trap.
