Right, I am getting together my wider reading (A2 AQA A, Love Through the Ages) and I have no idea how to write about form?

For example, Dracula (Stoker) is written in a epistolary form and then you have The Winter of Our Discontent (Steinbeck) written in 1st person narrative... So I've identified the form (if I have correctly)... What happens next? Would I have have to compare how my wider reading quotes shape the form (using the date from a Jonathan's diary confessing his love for Mina), and 1st person narrative (Ethan confessing his love for his wife, Mary) or just write about how the two prose view their ideas of love through the usage of an epistolary form and 1st person narrative form?

So basically I'd say: "Stoker uses the epistolary form throughout Dracula to.... in the diary of Jonathan Harker, he confesses [insert quote here] (his love for wife). On the other hand in this extract uses.... and in Winter of Our Discontent uses 1st person to illustrate the love of [insert quote here].

Which one would be more easier/better write in?
