This thread will contain a definitive list of supplementary material, which will be regularly updated – you do not need to search through the entire thread. Feel free to add to the list, however NO QUESTIONS IN THIS THREAD PLEASE! Only suggestions. Ta :)

All “what related texts should I use?” threads will be DELETED.

NB: Posts may be routinely deleted to allow for easy searching of “new” posts and related text information provided by BOSmembers. Also, do not be afraid if a “glittermark” appears on your post – this is just my way of keeping track of what I have and haven’t got up to yet. :)

Films - The Limey.
- Rob Roy.
- 8 Women (French film)
Short Stories - Have a look at some of Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected (e.g. William and Mary).You would have to do some serious bull-artistry around the tragedy aspects, but they could work if you can't find anything else.
You could also try the older versions of The Pied Piper of Hamlin - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pied_Piper_of_Hamelin.
Poems - R. Browning's My Last Duchess is a possibility.
Misc. - Some episodes of Buffy also deal with revenge and subsequently tragedy, especially in season six, but you'd need some bull-artistry again.

Bodyguard befriends his charge, charge gets kidnapped, bodyguard gets shot by corrupt cops diring the kidnapping, girl gets killed, bodyguard kells a couple of dozen people, takes kidnappers brother hostage, finds out girl is actually alive, trades himself for the girl. Bodyguard dies, girl lives.

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
It also helps in a way if you studied it in Year 11 Extension as a Gothic Genre text. Because the BOS doesn't know what you studied in Year 11. :p

Memento Mori by Jonathon Nolan, the short story precursor to Memento.
Brilliant short story, found on the internet.
