How do Emily Bronte and Robert Swindells establish each character's individual voice in Wuthering Heights and Daz 4 Zoe?

Extracts from this document...


How do Emily Bronte and Robert Swindells establish each character's individual voice in Wuthering Heights and Daz 4 Zoe? When a comparison is made between Daz 4 Zoe and Wuthering heights we find that they are different in a few ways. I Wuthering Heights we don't find out a lot about the two main characters; Heathcliff and Lockwood, where as in Daz 4 Zoe we are completely aware of the characters backgrounds, attitudes and personalities. Although we don't find out a lot about the main characters in Wuthering Heights we are very well informed of the storyline. Where as Robert Swindells immediately takes to the heart of the characters Emily Bronte involves us more with the storyline. ...read more.


Although the story is told through the narrative voice of Lockwood we don't actually learn a lot about Lockwood himself or his life. In Wuthering Heights we learn about the characters through narrators. This is also true for Daz 4 Zoe but their lifestyles are reflected by their surroundings. For example Daz, an illiterate bad mannered 15 year old with a poor quality of life, this is reflected by the fact that he lives in a run down house in a run down area where crime and poverty is to be seen every where. The other main character in Daz 4 Zoe is a well-spoken intelligent girl called Zoe. Zoe's wealthy background and good up bringing is reflected by the fact that she lives in the posh suburbs which is full of well-paid businessmen and rich people. ...read more.


For example the illiterate Daz uses slang such as "mam" instead of mum. Zoe's vocabulary also reflects her upbringing. Zoe uses words such as "fraternize". The use of a wide vocabulary shows a good educated up bringing. We also learn a bit a bout Heathcliff through his language but not as much as Daz and Zoe. The different times that the two novels were written in are clearly reflected in the two books. We get the felling of the 19th century from Wuthering Heights because every one is well spoken and the fact that accents are not strongly portrayed by the narrators. In contrast to this Daz 4 Zoe represents more of a modern era because of the relaxed accents and the attitudes shown in the novel. The idea of different classes is present in both novels. ...read more.
