Writing an essay on an extract we've been given and it says to discuss language, form and structure. We've been given the definition of form as: In a novel - which elements fit that text into a genre(s)? e.g What conventions of the gothic identify ‘The Bloody Chamber’ as a gothic novel?
So firstly i'd thought it would be the language that would make a novel fit into a certain genre but if i write about language when discussing form, do I then combine this when discussing language.
Also, what elements of a science fiction novel make it that genre? I'm starting A level English Literature this week and i'd like to clear this up before then. Thank you!
