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?
  • A comparative Analysis of Shall I Compare Thee

    "Both Poems are powered by the human drive to find a partner and are expressive of the poet's inner emotions around the mysterious forces of love and that of its subsidiary emotions. They are both at odds yet strangely similar, and that's what makes them so good to compare; they are linked to a core theme but are coming to a conclusion from two different perspectives and that's what makes them so useful when put together."

  • Discuss the opening of Paradise Lost, Book 1, commenting on the style, the focus on Satan and explaining Milton(TM)s stated purpose in writing Paradise Lost.

    "Milton tells the audience the reason why he created paradise lost in the exordium, which is the summary of content and is a typical feature of classic epics, such as the Odyssey and in plays by Shakespeare. He also wanted to write a Christian epic in English as he felt that the English language was important enough to be known all over the world, and in order to do that, there would have to be a great English epic. So, Milton wrote an epic about the biggest and most important subjects: Heaven, Hell, God, Satan, Man and His fall from paradise, and initially, the beginning of thime to the Last Judgement."
