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?
  • Closely analyse the presentation of Rochesters character in Jane Eyre. In the course of your writing make comparisons with the way Rochester is presented in Wide Sargasso Sea.

    "Although similar and comparable, the characters of Bront�'s Rochester and Rhys's Rochester are placed in different cultures, written in different centuries and have different circumstances. Rhys's villain is not given the fond treatment that Bront�'s Byronic hero is at the end; however, the presentation of both characters is consistent in many areas. Rochester, despite redeeming himself at the conclusion of the novel, is a symbol of the male oppression, of the patriarchal society and of the lies and deceit which bring about Antoinette's imprisonment and almost bring about Jane's. Words: 1644"

  • 'Rochester is master and Jane a passive victim.' Discuss power and control in Jane and Rochester's relationship.

    "In conclusion, I believe that the statement, ‘Rochester is master and Jane a passive victim,’ is not true to some extent. Throughout the novel, there are hints to support this statement however Jane is shown to be an outspoken woman who gives outbursts of her thoughts. She follows and obeys Mr Rochester as he is her master, throughout the novel Jane is heavily dependant on other people therefore she may find pleasure in Mr Rochester’s attention."

  • Discuss the significance of seemingly “unrealistic” or apparently implausible characters, places or events in literature you have studied.

    "In conclusion, the seemingly unrealistic or implausible characters in the context of each novel do play a crucial role in the development of the ideas the author wants to portray. In the first case, the Savage acts as the ambassador of our proper human passions in the Brave New World so that Huxley's point of view on the conflict presented, the trading of freedom and high art for ignorant bliss, is conveyed properly, using the necessary narrative subjective ness. However small carelessness's in the plot create an involuntary implausibility in this character making it not at all convincing in the underlying levels, yet no less effective in the conceptual clash and further debate, which is the whole point of the novel. In Captain Corelli's Mandolin a much different technique is employed by De Berni�res as we have observed, making of Alekos equally effective in transmitting the authors ideas as John, but doing so in a more artful and thought up way than Huxley through a subtle symbolic representation of the human values behind the author's call to innocence and modesty as the ultimate form of wisdom."
