This could not be more wrong.intertextual perspectives have nothing to do with the context and values between the two composers. Breaking up the words, intertextual = drawing from or referencing something, perspectives = a point of view. Therefore it is the point of view or attitude the composer is trying to convey regarding contextual concerns of their time. When putting together the module and elective, we were required to compare the intertextual perspectives offered by the two composers to show how similar/differing perspectives can arise from differing contexts. Correct me if i'm wrong ... jks don't care no more english forever wooooooo
Straight from the syllabus:
Module A: Comparative Study of Texts and Context
This module requires students to compare texts in order to explore them in relation to their contexts. It develops students’ understanding of the effects of context and questions of value.
Each elective in this module requires the study of groups of texts which are to be selected from a prescribed text list. These texts may be in different forms or media.
Students examine ways in which social, cultural and historical context influences aspects of texts, or the ways in which changes in context lead to changed values being reflected in texts. This includes study and use of the language of texts, consideration of purposes and audiences, and analysis of the content, values and attitudes conveyed through a range of readings.
Students develop a range of imaginative, interpretive and analytical compositions that relate to the comparative study of texts and context. These compositions may be realised in a variety of forms and media.
The question for Module A was deceptive. You had to explicitly and extensively discuss context AND answer the question provided.
