  1. Brave New World. Lindas version of the New Mexican Savage Reservation incident.

    Seeing them there, mindlessly repeating the directions to us, made me sure that I definitely would not want to be a Delta-Minus or any class for that matter, Beta-Minus? get the best of both worlds. We get very good jobs and Alpha?s are attracted to us. What could be better? The first message we heard from the Delta was that we were a good few miles away before we would even see the Savage.

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?
  • The Crucible: To what extent is John and Elizabeth's relationship the main focus of the play?

    "My conclusion is that I definitely think John and Elizabeth's relation ship was the main focus of the play, we can see how their relation ship changes from Act 2 when they are arguing with each other, to Act 3 when Elizabeth tells the only lie she has ever told in her life to defend John in court, to Act 4 when eventually they forgive each other. We see how first of all Elizabeth holds the fact that John committed adultery against him, and then, throughout the play, she manages to see the good in him and defends him, and eventually forgives him. We see how John is ashamed to admit his sin but then he admits it, and is man enough to take the punishment and die an honest man. I think Abigail's role is equally as important as John's and Elizabeth's as she is the villain of the play and I think that Arthur Miller has linked his play to McCarthyism to show that even though two hundred years have passed, not very much in the political side of things, has changed."

  • I am going to discuss the portrayal of men and masculinity in two Scottish plays I have studied. The plays are 'Men Should Weep' by Ena Lamont Stewart' and 'Perfect Days' by Liz Lochead.

    "In conclusion the portrayal of men and masculinity in two Scottish plays that I have studied are that they completely dominate the society. They are selfish self-absorbed characters. In "Men Should Weep" this is portrayed through John a very self-absorbed character. I think the writer's purpose was to show how bad the conditions were that people use to live in and some people still do. In "Perfect Days" the men are portrayed to be very stupid and weak characters. I feel that the writer's purpose was to show that women can cope without men."

  • Compare Aldous Huxley's and John Wyndham's visions of society in 'Brave New World' and 'The Day of the Triffids'.

    "Therefore the conclusion that I come to is, that both John Wyndham's and Aldous Huxley's views of the future are very different. Huxley says that there is no hope for the future, that the human race shall be totally controlled by what one man desires. The human race shall become monotonous machines which will not ever have the power of free will. This however is what distinguishes man from machines, therefore making the plight for man pathetic and ironic. John Wyndham's however says that yes Man will help to cause its self a catastrophe but there is hope for Man in the end because he on the whole is good. Theodora Birch English Coursework"
