Hey,

My college is doing Wuthering Heights for the set text and my lecturer has ensured that we plan essays for love, families, and men/gentlemen. Has a hunch that they might come up!

What set text are you studying?

I don't have any predictions but (because I'm doing Orwell's Shooting an Elephant) I'm praying for politics/society to come up.

How are you guys prepping for Section A?

I'm going over past papers, making sure I know the framework and going over the contexts from poets on the AS anthology! How about you?

We've been told to make plans for families, men/gentlemen and fathers, if that's any help

That's a good way to do it I might have to root out my anthology then haha! I've been trying to familiarise myself with different poetry movements eg Romanticism just in case I get a mind blank over a particular poet in the exam.

What grade are you aiming for?

That's a good idea I mean if it's not a poet from the anthology, it means you may be able to talk about the movement they might belong to or whatever :P

I'm aiming for an A but I only really need a B. I had an A last year so fingers crossed! How about you?

I planned it as
-small paragraph on Mr Earnshaw-
How he treats Catherine, Hindley & Heathcliff
-Hindley being father to Hareton, but not looking after him and treating him right due to his alcoholism etc
-Heathcliff and Hareton- how he won't let Hareton have access to education. Victim of Heathcliff's revenge on Hindley, yet doesn't like it when Cathy (Jr) says bad things about him and is also the only one (if I remember rightly) who suffers due to HC's death.
-Heathcliff and Linton- treats him horribly because Linton is weak and pathetic. Uses Linton as pawn to gain control of Thrushcross Grange, revenge on Edgar. When he is dying and Cathy is asking HC to tend to Linton, he isn't that bothered
-Edgar and Cathy- at first due to his grief she was 'unwelcome child' but he educates her and enjoys his time with her. Very close relationship. When Edgar is on his deathbed Cathy is relieved that she had been released from WH soon enough to see him before he dies, heartbroken when he passes.

It's a rough plan and I do have it more detailed and on paper which I shall post on here tomorrow! X

Great thank you so much. I think if that came up now I could at least something decent. What partner texts are you using to compare to Wuthering Heights ?

No problem! Any plans I make I'll post on here in case
I'm using the texts I studied for the coursework where possible (King Lear and Cat On a Hot Tin Roof) and I'm hoping to bring in Northanger Abbey and Pride and Prejudice, but it all depends on the question. As long as I get one in I'll be happy!.

Reading through a lot of people have been told to plan essays on love which makes me rather happy considering our teacher put quite a bit of emphasis on that one! Comparison texts for that in class were Schopenhauer, Enduring Love (Ian McEwan) & Othello, although Othello was part of coursework.

And if you have presentation of men I think Othello fits nicely there, so does Churchill's 'We shall fight them on the beaches' speech. Could perhaps fit Oliver Twist & Fagin in there, but that might be pushing it a bit.

Hi! I'm doing Wuthering Heights too, like many of you here; my teacher told us to compare it with one novel contemporary to its era and one modern novel. I haven't read anything contemporary to Brontë except for Pride and Prejudice so I'm going to use that (watching the film numerous times will be 'revision') and A Thousand Splendid Suns for my modern text which has so many comparative points!

Does anyone have any sample essays or any idea how to write an essay for Wuthering Heights? I have several points but no idea how to formulate them into a coherent essay.

Hello
My English lecturer has given predictions on love/passionate relationships, surreal and reality/ supernatural, pain/conflict/violence, presentation of men/authority and power of men, and isolation/alienation.
Judging from other comments it looks like something to do with men might come up.
Some of the themes they ask are disguised as other themes for example love and passionate relationships overlap with one another as does isolation and alienation so that's quite useful.
I also think it's useful to get some ideas on presentation of place, no idea why. I just hate that theme I suppose haha!
But yeah, I hope this helps with anything and good luck!

Hey, RunningInHeels
I've sent an attachment of a homework assignment that I done for my college, core text Wuthering Heights and I got 40/40 on it if you want to take a look. And I can give you a few tips.
Firstly, when you get a theme such as beliefs, focus on a certain aspect of beliefs such as religion or another example the theme of death and focus on how characters deal with death.
Write about your first point (a point being a certain aspect of the text or a quote) and then focus upon another point/quote that relates to the previous one, whether it compares with it or contrasts. Don't write about another point if it has no relation to the previous one as you could lose precious marks. This point can be from Wuthering Heights or from an extended reading text. Then continue to do this throughout the essay so that it flows and sounds more coherent to the examiner. Never throw in a quote without analysis and linguistic and literary terminology involved.
As for the AO3 contextual knowledge part, I tend to use that in my introduction straight away as you'll get more AO3 marks if you keep comparing and contrasting throughout your essay.
I hope this helps and feel free to message me back with any concerns. Good luck!

You're welcome my lecturer has said it might be something to do with men, like male authority or male parental figures. Also maybe violence/conflict
