Hi guys,

I am currently planning my coursework for A2 English Literature, the coursework is based on the novels of 1984 and Never Let Me Go. The question is 'A dystopian society's main success is to sustain itself by removing identity through control of the individual'. How far do you agree with this comment in light of 1984 and Never Let Me Go? I would genuinely appreciate any tips and advice you guys can give me for this question or even the novels themselves.

Thanks

I just completed my Higher 3 Lit coursework. One of the texts I examined was also 1984. It seems that many are interested in using it for critical analysis and comparison. I've uploaded some of my research and argumentative points on my blog so that it's more accessible to everyone. Feel free to visit it theawarrior.wordpress.com!

Read the novels first obviously hahaha

In your introduction I suggest defining a dystopian society, identity and what control of the individual is. Talk about context as well to sort of the set the scene and say whether you agree and disagree with the statement.

Go through the novels and highlight (literally) any quotes you think are important and pick out analysis like metaphors, similes, grammar etc and say why the writer has used them and what they convey.

Also give evidence of parts that show the taking away of identity and control and contrast this with evidence that doesn't show this. Like in 1984 for example, everyone is sort of same you know, with the uniform and mundane lifestyle there is no chance to express yourself creatively like you can nowadays and you have the 'Thought Crimes' too.
