How would I go about answering a question that says "Discuss the significance of the complex plot in the importance of being earnest" - I know the plot plays a huge role in generating humour, and as satire, but I've got no idea how to how to structure my answer. Do I have to argue for/against the statement, or do I just give examples of the complex plot and talk about them?
Sorry about the unclear rant, any help would be welcomed

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:

Hello there!

With a 'Discuss' essay you should always show both sides of the argument (how the complex plot is significant or not so significant; for the latter point maybe think about how the characters are just as important or maybe even more important) with lots of quotes from the text to back yourself up- plus bonus points if you can get a critic or two in there as well!

Good luck!!
