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?
  • Whom or what is most to blame for Henchards downfall, to what extent do you believe he was right to blame himself

    "In conclusion I believe that to some extent Henchard himself is to blame for his own downfall from these examples and these reasons however it was not his own entire fault about his downfall, other characters in the novel played a big part in his life as when new characters for example, Farfrae were introduced, his life suddenly declined. In the beginning he became the mayor and was certainly a respectable man in the community. It is all down to fate, as nearly everything that happened in the novel was against him and at the end of the novel Hardy indicates this by signifying him dead."
