    This is an English lit. controlled assessment task I am having some trouble preparing for. It is a task where I have to compare the play Othello with the book Frankenstein.

    Title: Compare the presentation of 'conflict of identity' in the characters of Othello and Frankenstein's creature.

    Has anyone done anything similar and could perhaps give me some relevant points or quotes? The stuff I've got is along the lines of the differences between who they want to be, and who they actually are; how they perceive themselves and how others perceive them etc, but I need a few more points, and I badly need quotes as well.

    Thanks for any help you would be able to give me.

    Ok, well I suppose you could include the fact that both Othello and frankenstein's creature are considered as outsiders, and just this concept of being an 'outsider' has scope for detailed analysis. However, frankenstein's creature is rejected completely from society, whereas Othello is accepted at first, because of his rank.

    -othello and the creature both have a downfall, expand on this, e..g the creature was rejected by his creator and then shunned from society, which contributed to him being provoked to commit murder etc, whereas part of othello's downfall is by being manipulated by Iago.

    Hope it helped
