  1. To Sir With Love by E.R Braithwaite - Exploring Themes - Racism

    Another aspect of racism prevalent in the novel is the use of language, used as a powerful weapon to express racism. This can be evident through the citations which were ?black bastard? and ?blackie teacher? were intended to be provoking. Denham, who cited the slur: ?black bastard? was only said to gain attention from his peers and by standing up to the teacher, it would give him the characteristics of a leader; an individual who was brave and stood up for what he believed in.

  • Compare and contrast the two pairs of lovers in 'Much Ado about Nothing'. Consider their attitudes, actions, language, love and audience reaction to their stories.

    "In conclusion the play illustrates a kind or irony. The young passionate relationship between Hero and Claudio based on shallow first appearances deepens. As Claudio matures he begins to appreciate Hero as a real person when he realises her innocence and finally marries her. Beatrice and Benedick's innate love is cemented, when in the final scene, they begin to realise the game they have been playing and see each other for who they really are. Benedick finally silences Beatrice with a kiss, and thus like all Shakespeare's comedies the play ends in marriage between the two couples, allowing his audience to return home satisfied and in good spirit.

  • an inspector calls- discuss the dramatic affect the inspector has upon the play

    "In conclusion, all of the drama in the play is either directly related to the Inspector or is involving the Inspector. He disrupts the Birling household immensely; he leaves the foundations of the family shattered. One of the clever things the Inspector does is; instead of breaking the family down by telling them they are awful people and that they have killed a young, innocent girl. He gives them some facts, tells them how they were involved and then he lets them work out in their minds what they have done and how they can avoid a similar situation in the future. ."

  • Compare the beginnings of Uncle Ernest and Brighton rock.

    "In conclusion, I mostly enjoyed the opening of Brighton Rock by Graham Greene because I was kept interested throughout and I wanted to read the rest of the story to find out what happens to Hale and if he really gets murdered. I also want to get to know the character better because I feel I know nothing about him. The author writes the story well because the techniques he uses help to build the suspense. I did not really enjoy Uncle Ernest and I wasn't inspired to read on because there was little action and I already knew lots about the main character. Allegra Gacsall"
