I'm doing this exam! and wuthering heights
love would be amazing!!! I think it could be presentation of women, death, class maybe
narrative voice would be beautiful!!!
What do you mean by contrast?

Contrast would be a brilliant question - like contrasting Thrushcross Grange and Wuthering Heights.... Linton and Hareton... Heathcliff and Edgar etc.

Does anybody have any helpful revision laterial for Wuthering heights? Anything that contains all the themes etc?

Also how do you structure the comparison of three unseen texts? I usually go for purpose, audience, context, attitude, linguistic devices..

All contribution will be appreciated.

If death came up, how would you actually tackle it? The only tragic event I can think about is Cathy's exaggerated death.

The novel is filled with death...

Catherine, Hindley, Frances, Isabella etc.
You can relate this to contextual factors as Emily Bronte's family was also plagued with illness and consequently death.

im doing wuthering heights as well, as for structuring your answer would it be good to set it out as:-

1. Quote - followed by what its shows about the way ... is presented
2. compare it to wider reading
3. how the context helps to support this
??

and also how many quotes would be good amount to answer the question?

I know the novel is filled with death but - other than like 2 characters - it isn't really emphasised on. For example, Hindley's death proves to be a sudden death and isn't really stressed on. Also, cause of his death is ambigious since there is no 'clear' account of what the cause is.

but fair, it does seem rewarding in terms of context.

Thanks for reply.

Hey In our class we tend to talk about how Mr Earnshaw's death is really peaceful , I don't remember the quote exactly but it's something like 'he died quietly.. da di da' in contrast to say Heathcliff's death which is presented as really violent. So just go on about stuff like that haha

i have a feeling that the genre study will be okay, just add as much non-lit/lit analysis and then context context context
but themes in wuthering heights etc is going to be quite difficult.
what takes the longest is thinking of 2 NON FICTION things to compare to wuthering heights, FICTION i'm okay on as i normally chose Shakespeare or Chaucer and then something silly like a disney movie
In my last essay I used that divorce of Cheryl and Ashley Cole as a non-fiction example. That's how random I am. Oh God.... going to start looking at current events now :/

I did contrasts
Wuthering Heights - Thrushcross Grange
Heathcliff - Edgar
Othello - Iago
Eternal love in wuthering heights and love ending with death in Funeral Blues poem by W.H Auden.
Then said Funeral Blues contrasts wuthering heights as in FB he says 'pour away the oceans and sweep up the wood, for nothing now can ever come to any good' whereas in Wuthering heights nature continues as Heathcliff and Cathy are seen as ghosts on the moors after they are dead.

Hopefully I did okay Hope everyone else was fine.

Heyy
well i found section A hard. I didnt really understand the poem, and althought i did link the image/portrayal of sea somehow, thinking about it, i didnt use any simile's or metaphors which is just really stupid!
I dont know why i found it so hard, eurgh im so annoyed at section A
anyhow section b had the question i wanted to come up which was awesome! i did presentation of women in my core text wuthering heights and linked it to the poem she walks in beauty and othello. although thinking about it, i didnt even read the other options, i just saw women and was like BOOM im doing youu
but yeah section A sucked, oh no i hate the sea now

Section A was tough! I just banged on about how it was a hard life for a sailor but each text had different views on it and arghh ahah!
Section B was great! I did the presentation of women for Wuthering Heights, was fine! Brought in Much Ado, East is East, Shirley Valentine, Hobson's Choice... really went for it with Section B!

Good luck everyone, hope you all did fine!
