Whatever you do, don't use anything along your story lines ever again for the hsc, it's simplied to cliched.t kitchingman said:Thanks very much for your advice. I decided to go down the track of art and the domestic and confined lives women lived in the 19th century. Basically... a girl is brought up by her wealthy grandfather after living in middle class society until her parents died, she then has to learn to bend her ways to suit her new upper class life. Im not exactly thrilled with the story, but it's due tomorrow, so haven't really got time to change it. Thanks again for your help.
Yes, but try to make your work more 'original' and not totally cliched to todays hsc student response standards. Such as dowry's, heroine constricted by marriage rises above and challenges society, etc. Think about other stuff eg. Oscar Wilde 'The Picture of Dorian Gray'.Rockyroad said:^Response to above post.
True but remember that 19th century novels did have cliched endings - that is what was unique to the 19th century victorian novel - happy ending, villian, etc.
Anyone know anything about - or any good links to - the topic - '19th century was a time for change and conservitism' - and 'what were the factors pushing change and conservertism' eg darwin, marx, tennyson etc. zzzzz help. Advanced English is hard.
