Since you're looking for texts that have themes surrounding war and love, a couple books that have come to mind are:
Pre-1900: War and Peace
Post-1900: Gone with the Wind
Both demonstrate the impact of war on society and include dwindling romances and conflicted love that can be great themes to analyse 😊

If you're looking for a challenge, Tennyson's Maud would be great for pre-1900. The speaker is probably mad and his psychological state declines after the woman he loves (read creepily obsessed with) dies. A very good example of a twisted form of love. In the end, he finds comfort while joining the military, which is also disturbing if you think about it.

Basically i like Gone with the wind but war and peace looks very complicated .
My exam board is love through the ages so there needs to be some aspect of love so .

- Anna Karenina -Novel by Leo Tolstoy - 1878
- The Scarlet Letter 1855
- The Awakening -1889

thank you for your help once again.

Sorry for the extremely late reply! I was away on holiday for a few weeks.

Personally I feel that Anna Karenina would be a brilliant comparison to Gone With The Wind. They have similar narratives that will make contrasting them simple and allow you to get the most analysis from them.

I also studied the love through the ages part of the course so these two texts would definitely compliment the criteria.

Common themes within the novels that relate to war and love that you could explore are: jealousy, abusive relationships, betrayal, conflicted love, the role of women, etc.

I hope this wasn't too late of a response and goodluck with your NEA.

I'm doing my A level English literature and that is exactly the text I have to focus on, but I'm having problems coming up with good context and analysing good quotes. I just wanted to ask If u have any advice for this problem, or if you have any experience. Anything would help!
