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 does Williams portray Blanche as a tragic heroine in Scene 1?

    "In conclusion, it is clear that Williams is not presenting Blanche as a tragic hero in scene one. He makes sure that any qualities the audience may be fond of, such as her fancy clothes or well-off upbringing, are quickly dismissed as he focuses on her alcoholism, naivety and struggles to form structured sentences. These problems that Blanche has are far from heroic qualities. Although there is a sense of a tragic flaw starting to develop, it is hard to determine in scene one whether these problems will have any affect on her later actions. Sam Franklin Mr Skinner"

  • To what extent is the glass menagerie about glass? Discuss.

    "In conclusion, I also think 'The glass menagerie,' is an effective title for the play. The play does reflect on Laura's fragility and necessity to grasp the non-existent world of her animal collection from which she seeks complete refuge. For this to exist, she greatly depends on her mother and brother. The glass menagerie is very important for Laura and ironically her happiness or unhappiness affects the rest. That is to say, if Tom does walk out, it will destroy her fragile glass menagerie, her source of peace and solace. Destroying hers would probably destroy his mental state of peace and solace as well. Perhaps this is the idea the play revolves around."

  • Two books I have chosen to compare are "The Woman in White", by Wilkie Collins and "The Woman in Black", by Susan Hill.

    "I personally enjoyed reading "The Woman in White" more than "The Woman in Black" as it was much more intricate and surprising whereas in "The Woman in Black", I thought it was quite predictable and had a simpler plot. "The Woman in White" had many characters that were all different and carefully described but the characters in "The Woman in Black" were not, in my opinion, as realistic or believable. I did not think that the characters in "The Woman in Black were as believable as the characters in "The Woman in White" as the characters from "The Woman in White" were intricately described and although the complex descriptions can be tedious to read, the reader does gain a more detailed view of the characters."
