Here is an example of what popped into my head.

"Explore the way setting is used in Dracula."

P: Stoker uses the castle in this chapter to express the alienation and foreign world to that of the English world when Harker enters Count Dracula's castle.

E: ""through these frowning walls and dark windows" (metaphor, personification, light/darkness theme (or) connotation). "not likely that my voice could penetrate" (isolation, fear, confinement as a theme, suspense).

E: explain what the quote(s) are saying

L: link what you have found out back to the question at hand.

There are many ways setting is used in the novel to arouse certain feelings and emotions for the reader in Dracula. One of the ways Stoker incorporates this is by using Harker's stream of consciousness to allow readers to feel a sense of lonesomeness (P) "through these frowning walls and dark windows" (Ev). The personification of the walls give the castle a haunting feeling and with the "dark windows", it also allows some sort of depression to seep through the walls to give Jonathan a feeling of isolation (Ex). Moreover, he recognizes that it is (P) "not likely that my voice could penetrate" the room (Ev). Here, we can infer that the castle's architecture is most likely made up of some dense cement that was not used to make houses in Victorian England. From this, it could be suggested that Stoker is presenting a contrast of how different the worlds of England and Europe are (Ex). This brings alienation to Harker as it seems he is physically trapped in the Gothic castle and emotionally confined because of this estranged setting he has been surrounded in (L).

Hope you understand? Feel free to message me/give feedback!
