    A-LEVEL ENGLISH
    THE GOTHIC

    Okay, let's get this straight right away. MY INTRODUCTIONS ARE ALWAYS TERRIBLE and I need help to improve. Can anyone give me some tips or examples of how they'd write theirs? Thank you!

    Hey,
    Well what I always try to do is open it using a critical quote as this immediately hits the AO of critical interpretations, for example by saying ' According to the critic... the Gothic is ....., which can be seen in the texts A, B, C, in different ways..'
    Obviously the critical quote has to link to the key terms of the question, but yeah thats what I usually try to do- hope that helped! Good luck
