Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • To what extent is the mechanicals' performance of Pyramus’s and Thisby a success?

    "In conclusion, the story line of the play of Pyramus and Thisbe is a tragedy; however, the way that the play was performed allowed it to have comedy, through the script and the 'amateur' acting style. I feel that a tragedy was not a suitable entertainment for a wedding, however, the comedy made it more appropriate. Helen Calvert 10K"

  • Analyse Shakespeares presentation of the characters of Antony and Cleopatra in Act 1.

    "In conclusion I think that Shakespeare presents Antony and Cleopatra as being madly and deeply in love but they are lustful towards each other and this enhances their relationship. Also that the two of them are incredibly powerful leaders but do neglect this and put their relationship first and foremost."

  • Discuss Shakespeare's presentation of Cleopatra in the play 'Antony and Cleopatra'

    "In my opinion 'Antony and Cleopatra' is a play of one woman's love and all the emotions and actions involved with this emotion. The presentation of Cleopatra shows her struggle to overcome her jealousy, selfishness and childish qualities to be with Antony, even though she has to commit suicide to achieve this. Shakespeare uses Cleopatra to show the desperate lengths people will go to."
