  • Link to AO3 messages and context
  • Question specific sentence

 

Orwell’s allegorical fable ‘Animal Farm’ tells the story of a group of animals that revolt against their abusive and oppressive human owners, only to suffer the same fate under the tyrannous regime of the pigs. The events of the novella closely mirror that of the Russian Revolution – Orwell’s method of satirising the political ideologies that lead to a totalitarian rule. + QUESTION FOCUSED SENTENCE

CONCLUSION

Orwell’s novella conveys the ominous message to the reader about the corruptive influence of power, as well as the dangers of apathy.

Shakespeare's tragedy 'Romeo and Juliet' tells the story of 'two star-crossed lovers' who confront the bitter feud between their families, and the efforts of fate, in order to pursue their forbidden relationship. Shakespeare explores the paradoxical relationship between love and hate, demonstrating the influences of the Jacobean era: patriarchal dominance, religion and the role of women. + QUESTION FOCUSED SENTENCE.

A Christmas Carol

Introductions:

  • Introduce the text and plot
  • Link to AO3 messages and context
  • Question specific sentence

Dickens’ allegory ‘A Christmas Carol’ follows the central protagonist Ebeneezer Scrooge – a representation of the upper classes of Victorian society – and his journey to redemption. Dickens uses his novel to satirise the view points of the wealthy and their view of the poor. We also see the significant influence of religion which Dickens clearly utilises to make the reader empathise with the views of Scrooge with the intention of posing the question… what if that was me? + QUESTION FOCUSED SENTENCE.

CONCLUSION

Dickens uses his novella to emphasise the importance of social responsibility – supporting those less fortunate: a message that is still relevant to audiences today.
