Hi, was wondering if anyone could help me at all. First day in year 13 today, read Frankenstein and Withering Heights once each and we are already given a section B question worth 42 marks and asked to answer it? What the hell??? I have no idea as we haven't studied any gothic literature or have any idea. Hoping someone can helpmeet. The question is asking: "In Gothic texts villains always make evil*seem attractive"
To what extent do you agree with this in the light of your reading of Wuthering Heights and Frankenstein?

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in Tank Girl now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

Wow! You've really been thrown into the deep end here

I guess your teacher is just wanting to see your essay writing and analytic skills- and probably won't be too mean if you don't know the texts too well? (At least I hope so... Otherwise that is one mean teacher!!)

I've moved this to the English forum now, you should get more replies here

Also, have you seen the resources on TSR?
Resources on Wuthering Heights are here
And Frankenstein is here
Hope they help

Your teacher is just testing the class to see where your analytical strengths and weaknesses lie by giving you such a hard question. It's just to see where you are - so where you were at AS and how to get you in the right direction throughout A2.

Most likely a trial essay. So you'll do the essay, then your teacher will mark it and perhaps have a series of lessons tailored to that particular essay and which ways you lot need to improve. Then, they'll probably set you the same essay or similar to do in late Sept/early Oct. 'Cause that's when teachers are asked to set your predicted grades so you guys can start applying to universities around Nov time.
