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?
  • To what extent can a near death experience be considered a religious experience?

    "In conclusion, to a large extent a near death experiences can be considered as a religious experience. This is because both experiences can be perceived as supernatural; they can be described as mental events and are spontaneous. Recipients of religious and near death experiences usually say what has happened to them has 'drawn them deeper' into knowledge of awareness of God. This clearly shows the similarities between both types of experiences. Moreover, to a small extent, there is no proof of a near death experience, it is the way the experience is interpreted or it could just be an individual's blick, the way they look at the world and interpret it. It is subjective rather than objective."

  • To some poets death is the beginning of life, but to others death is finality. Discuss these aspects with close reference to the work of two or more poets.

    "In conclusion I believe that that all four poets have there own way of writing about weather they believe that death is a finality or the beginning of a new life. The poets may have their reasons for believing in what they did and perhaps this is the way they thought of life the beginning or the end. I disagree with both James Shirley and Francis Beaumont as I believe that death is not a finality and that we can have an after life. I agree with Dylan Thomas as I believe that no matter how high or low our cast we will die and become the same and it is up to the soul to carry on and make the next person a better person, and this means that I disagree with the fact that if you are lower casted you will not go to heaven because I believe that you can improve in your next life and that is the reason for the next life; so you can improve on the mistakes you made in the previous life. 3"

  • Compare and contrast the poetic of death and 'seizing the day.' 'Death the leveller' by James Shirley and 'to the virgins, make much of time' by Robert Herrick.

    "In summary of these two poems, I have come to the conclusion that 'death the leveller' uses more powerful verbs and stronger imagery of a battle with death while the 'to the virgins' poem gives an idea of living life to the full while you can and don't wait long or your time mat run out and you may regret it."
