    Great Literature

    Why is P&P so high on people's lists? I recently read it, and Austen's much wittier than I would have thought, but I definitely wonder what people see in the novel. Care to enlighten me?

    WL2 question

    I agree that it doesn't hurt to make your title more specific. I haven't read this work, so I don't know if you can go broader than that one aspect, but to answer your question, yes, that sounds like a formal essay to me. Just make a 1/2 to 1 page informal outline and run it by your teacher to be on the safe side.

    WL2 question

    When I think of commentary, I think of an essay based on a key passage of the text. The essay mostly sticks to what's in that particular passage. A formal essay, though, pulls analysis from the whole text. It's the type of essay I wrote before IB essays. Just a normal essay that can be about anything. Not sure how clearly I described that, but the way I see it, if you want to write an essay on the author's use of X to do Y in a text, it's probably a formal essay. I never had much practice with commentaries (except for the IOC, I suppose) so I considered analyzing a poignant passage to do a key passage analysis, where the passage is connected to the rest of the text. I also considered doing a formal essay just because it was a normal essay. Does that answer your question?
