Hii, i also do english lit erm there are exampler ones on your exam boards ( i know aqa deffo does )
But imo I would say to start the essatyby defining the question ( so what exactly is social forces and is it a tragedy )
then go on to talk about where you stand in regards to the statement - does your book prove this to be true or not
then outline the main points the body of essay will expand on
( have 3 central points )

I hope that was useful and good luck with nea ! :smile:

Hii,
I suggest you adopt an "argumentative essay" approach when responding to the assigned question. You see, this question needs you to argue that Beloved is a tragedy of social sources rather than a family tragedy. You need to find out the different social forces in the book (for example, is community solidarity a good social force? ). Once you identify the social forces, you can argue how they brought about tragedy. I hope this helps. Feel free to contact me if you need more guidance x
