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?
  • Discuss the role of the narrator in Die Verwandlung.

    "In conclusion, the narrative in Die Verwandtlung has a disjointed style, swapping between the two styles of normal narrative focalised through Gregor and the narrative that describes Gregor's thoughts to the reader. This style creates unease throughout the story that is reflected by the questions posed by the story, over Gregor's humanity, and the juxtaposing of the real family and surreal transformation in the story. The gap of information given by the two styles of narrative give opportunity for humour, but the humour is also ambivalent, like the narrative, one does not know if it truly is humour this increases the reader's unease. The narrative also tracks the passage of time and makes the reader feel that Gregor was still human to the last. All of these aspects of the narrative combine to give the feeling that the reader cannot be sure of any moral stand-point in the story and is not able to come to complete conclusions - this means the reader is left with questions rather than answers and must therefore involve themselves in the story more."

  • Discuss differences in effect and structure created by the first-person narration in Dante's The Inferno, and Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.

    "In conclusion, it can be seen that Dante and Chaucer choose to employ first person narration for vastly different reasons. In the case of The Inferno, this perspective is ideal for the introduction of humanistic literary techniques and an increase in the importance of individual characterisation above role and gender stereotypes. It also increases the elements of adventure, as we are very close to Dante and the unfolding events. Ultimately, it serves to heighten the solo hope and futility of his epic quest (although not travelling alone, his destination is ultimately a personal one), while enriching the journey with the detail of characterisation and the characterisation of personally perceived detail. Chaucer, on the other hand, has far more mischievous motivations, and employs the first person perspective throughout his many tales in order that the characters get a fair chance to present themselves and that we get a fair chance to judge them. He relishes the fact that, given enough rope, they will inevitably satirise themselves to a degree that cannot be argued with."

  • Discuss The Similarities And Differences In Themes And Ideas As Shown In 'Stone Cold' And 'A Modest Proposal'.

    "This carried on until Vince locked him out of the house. Link went over to stay at his sister's for the night, and when returning home next morning Vince slapped him a few times on the head for worrying his mother. In my opinion this wasn't a good 'enough' reason for link to make himself homeless. Swindells could have it made it much harsher for Link which would have been made it more effect and real. Swindells also tries to write as a modern 16 year old when portraying Link. He makes lots of"
