Homework help! (english language)Watch
Its my first term of doing english language and i find this vague and confusing so some help would be appreciated.
- what texts should i find cause when i heard thematically linked i thought fiction but fiction might not reflect personal identities of the author (or is it the identity of the character)
-What kind of texts? book, autobiography, article, poem
Im pretty sure if i could find two texts i could take it from there cause im confident in analysing but i just dont know what texts to find. My whole class is confused but its the holidays and no one knows her email. She said she expects this to be good since we all got bad on our little mock tests. (Cs,Ds and Es but only 3 Cs in a class of 25).
Some help on what kind of texts to find or even some examples would be much appreciated.
So if you took one text like An Inspector Calls, you have themes there like power and wealth, responsibility and duty, conscience and guilt. So if you find another piece of fiction with some similar themes then you could compare how the two texts deal differently or similarly with the linked themes and how the personal identities of the characters are shown ( feelings, thoughts, ambitions, worries, relationships with their famiy and friends, romantic relationships) and their social identities (their place in society regarding class and social standing, their authority and responsibilty in society, if they are looked up to, looked down upon - this is determined by: social position, wealth, gender, age, race etc and of course the era the people are living in.) It doesn't have to be about Inspector calls at all, that was just an example.
What other plays, novels or poems or non-fiction pieces are you familiar with?
