  7. Commentary - Ethan Frome

    This is my essay which I used for my IOP in 2014. It is titled " How are the themes in Wharton's Ethan Frome constructed through her use of imagery?"
    When I started IB, I found English Literature to be very difficult (and I still do) so I thought I would share this essay with whoever is struggling to analyze Ethan Frome or thinking of doing IB.
    I do not know the grade of my IOP, but my teacher told me I did a good job and my peers told me it was insightful as well.
    Enjoy!
  8. World Literature Paper 2013 ("Family Ties" By C. Lispector)

    This essay was an analysis of Clarice Lispector's use of narrow settings in her work, "Family Ties". "Family Ties" is the title of the collection of short stories we covered in class. In this essay, I attempt to analyse four stories.
    Although I think I offer some acute observations, some ideas are left undeveloped (granted, 1500 words isn't enough to say something significant) and some ideas do not mesh together with the essay prompt very well. The essay also sounds a bit verbose, and I think I used too many big words or used inappropriate words because it is quite hard to understand at times.
    I didn't get the mark breakdown, but based on my final mark, I would guesstimate that this essay received a mid 6 ~ low 7.
  9. Comparative Paper 2 on Drama (Beckett, Shakespeare, Miller)

    Prompt: "Visual Action can be as important as speech on stage". Discuss with referencing at least two works that you have studied.
    I chose to write my essay on Beckett's Waiting for Godot, Miller's Death of a Salesman, and Shakespeare's Hamlet. We only got 90 minutes to do this essay, so it's a bit unfinished near the last point/conclusion.
    Received a 6.

    An "open topic" paper on Emma by Jane Austen, in which I wrote about the character of Mr. Woodhouse and his absurdities.
  11. Grade 7 paper 2 essay (drama)

    A Paper 2 english literature essay on a past drama topic about stories and their effect in plays.
    The texts used were A Streetcar Named Desire, Death of a Salesman and very briefly Waiting for Godot.
    This was marked by an IB examiner and received a 7 (23/25).
