I am currently studying these two novels for one side of my A level English literature course and the two texts are supposedly comparatively compatible. Pretty much I am struggling predominantly with TLS alone, but I am finding comparing the two texts near impossible and I'm panicking about my exam. if anyone has any tips about this novel and how to analyse/ compare to DG please help me!

duality of characters: dorian and his painting, appears innocent at first but then his gothic side starts to take over as he sins more. Faraday appears to be helping the family at first but his true motives are to take over hundreds
setting: PDG: upper class london and the more seedier side. TLS: a house which is falling apart, main gothic feature, characters seems normal
the use of light in both novels - when events occur in TLS the house is lit up, like when gillian gets bitten. light gives the false sense of calm and order but really it makes the characters blind to the supernatural. light allows shadows to lurk

Hey I was totally panicking too, the whole system is f*cked up - I'm especially hating the Wife Of Bath!But here are some fall back things I write about:Voices (e.g Caroline and sibyl both have low melodious voices etc.)Rings - in both they are used as a symbol of class but Mrs Ayres are looseThe idea of doubles as enablers (and you could do a fancy link to Jekyll and Hyde)Class - Dorian strives to sink in his class while Faraday strives to blossom (blossom was the wrong use of word, I'm making him sound like he just hit puberty or something!)Neither belong in their class - Faraday is a doctor from a working background and so is classless and Dorian and Sibyl both have mixed class parentageThe portrayal of the aristocratic houses - Hundreds is what the aristocracy's will look like etc.
