    psychological setting

    Hey guys, working on my works in translation ( for final hand in to IB). In class, we talked about psychological setting briefly when discussing short stories. It was basically tone, mood and atmosphere. But im unsure because we only touched upon it. However, in my essay, I want to use it. I searched it up to clarify the meaning of this type of setting but can't find anything. Do you guys know what psychological setting is in literature? I want to know for sure. Thanks!

    Hi I'm planning to do my WIT Essay on Medea by Euripides, but I'm really struggling to come up with a topic. HELP ;-;
  4. Hi guys, I have to complete my Works in Translation first draft by Monday and after having written half of it I am a little worried on whether my topic of 'An analysis of different forms of conflict in Lorca's play Blood Wedding' is too broad or not worded correctly. I would be analysing the conflict between the families, conflict between ones' individual wishes versus societal laws and the conflict between nature and humankind. Can anyone assist me here?

    Help reviewing some work?

    Hey there, I was wondering if anyone was keen to help me review some of the work that I have done for my WIT and EE maybe? I'm not sure, am I allowed to do that? Just send some work to you, you tell me if I'm totally going on the completely wrong track or if I'm going pretty okay? Also, is there a risk that if I do this, it will show up when they check my work with turnitin? Or will anyone plagiarise my work...? Thank you

  8. My own notes made from a collection of sources, not only on the play itself, but also on Ibsen's stylistic features.
  9. Hello, fellow IBSers! I am currently editing my first draft of my WL essay; however I am not sure if my question is good enough. I am doing it on Chronicle of a Death Foretold, and my RS talked about Vicario remorse, honour, and machismo. My current essay title is Vicario Remorse: The effects of Latin-American machismo in Chronicle of a Death Foretold and my 'question' is How is Vicario remorse depicted and to what extent is this a result of machismo? Is my question okay, or do I need to make it tighter?

    Reflective Statement Sample *Full Marks*

    Reflective statement sample for World Lit. Full marks were received.
  11. Hi. I'm writing my WIT essay on Lorca's symbolisms and its representations of repressed groups in "Blood Wedding". I've written about Mother + Bride as repression of women, red/blood as repression of people who desire freedom/repression of 'sinners', Woodcutters + Moon as repression of freedom and individuals. I am aware that the Beggar Woman is a major symbol, however I've only mentioned very VERY briefly about her in my essay and my essay have already exceeded the word count. Is it silly to not write about the Beggar Woman? Thanks.
  12. I really need to get a high 7 for this assignment to make up for my horrible IOP score. So... Firstly, I really, really want to ace the reflective statement, so I'm wondering what's the difference between showing superficial development, some development and development of culture and context (see criterion below). A: Fulfilling the requirements of the reflective statement To what extent does the student show how their understanding of cultural and contextual elements was developed through the interactive oral? 0:The work does not reach a standard described by the descriptors. 1: Reflection on the interactive oral shows superficial development of the student’s understanding of cultural and contextual elements. 2: Reflection on the interactive oral shows some development of the student’s understanding of cultural and contextual elements. 3: Reflection on the interactive oral shows development of the student’s understanding of cultural and contextual elements. WORD LIMIT FOR THE REFLECTIVE STATEMENT IS 300-400 WORDS. IF THE LIMIT IS EXCEEDED, 1 MARK WILL BE DEDUCTED. For all my practice WiT essays, I have gotten only 1 out of 3 for the reflective statement, and can't figure out why. As for achieving well in the rest of the criteria (below)... Are there any posts on this website and/or online resources that would be useful? I know there are essay writing tips and stuff, but they're mostly to do with organisation and language. What about criteria B (knowledge and understanding) and C(appreciation of the writer's choices)? How do you show detailed knowledge and understanding and perceptive insight? How do you show excellent appreciation of the writer's choices? B: Knowledge and Understanding How effectively has the student used the topic and the essay to show knowledge and understanding of the chosen work? 0: The work does not reach a standard described by the descriptors. 1-2: The essay shows some knowledge but little understanding of the work used for the assignment. 3-4: The essay shows knowledge and understanding of, and some insight into, the work used for the assignment. 5-6: The essay shows detailed knowledge and understanding of, and perceptive insight into, the work used for the assignment. C: Appreciation of the writer’s choices To what extent does the student appreciate how the writer’s choice of language, structure, technique and style shape meaning? 0: The work does not reach a standard described by the descriptors. 1-2: There is some mention, but little appreciation, of the ways in which language, structure, technique and style shape meaning. 3-4: There is adequate appreciation of the ways in which language, structure, technique and style shape meaning. 5-6: There is excellent appreciation of the ways in which language, structure, technique and style shape meaning. Organisation and development How effectively have the ideas been organized, and how well are references to the works integrated into the development of ideas? 0: The work does not reach a standard described by the descriptors. 1: There is some attempt to organize ideas, but little use of examples from the works used. 2: Ideas are superficially organized and developed, with some integrated examples from the works used. 3: Ideas are adequately organized and developed, with appropriately integrated examples from the works used. 4: Ideas are effectively organized and developed, with well-integrated examples from the works used. 5: Ideas are persuasively organized and developed, with effectively integrated examples from the works used. E: Language How clear, varied and accurate is the language? How appropriate is the choice of register, style and terminology? (“Register†is student’s use of elements such as vocabulary, tone, sentence structure and terminology appropriate to the task). 0: The work does not reach a standard described by the descriptors. 1: Language is rarely clear and appropriate; there are many errors in grammar, vocabulary and sentence construction, and little sense of register and style. 2: Language is sometimes clear and carefully chosen; grammar, vocabulary and sentence construction are fairly accurate, although errors and inconsistencies are apparent; the register and style are to some extent appropriate to the task. 3: Language is clear and carefully chosen, with an adequate degree of accuracy in grammar, vocabulary and sentence construction, despite some lapses; register and style are mostly appropriate to the task. 4: Language is clear and carefully chosen, with a good degree of accuracy in grammar, vocabulary and sentence construction; register and style are consistently appropriate to the task. 5: Language is very clear, effective, carefully chosen and precise, with a high degree of accuracy in grammar, vocabulary and sentence construction; register and style are effective and appropriate to the task. btw, There aren't many exemplars out there, because the first exams of this syllabus was only last year.
  13. Hi everyone! So I am writing my Written Assessment Essay about the book Perfume, by Patrick Suskind and I'm having a really hard time getting started. I dont really wanna write about the stuff that i wrote in my supervised writing, which was about postmodernism mostly. I kind of want my topic to be along the lines of scent, and/or the constant comparasins made between grenioulle and other animals (the tick) My teacher is kind of lazy, and doesn't explain things very well. So I'm having a hard time choosing a topic, and I also don't really know what exactly the essay needs to contain. Thank you!
  14. Hey! Could anyone please help me with analysing this poem? I'm not confused about the overall message, i just need to go into deep analysis of it which im finding hard to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! The Poem is, The Answer by Bei Dao Debasement is the password of the base,Nobility the epitaph of the noble.See how the gilded sky is coveredWith the drifting twisted shadows of the dead.The Ice Age is over now,Why is there ice everywhere?The Cape of Good Hope has been discovered,Why do a thousand sails contest the Dead Sea?I came into this worldBringing only paper, rope, a shadow,To proclaim before the judgmentThe voice that has been judged:Let me tell you, world,I—do—not—believe!If a thousand challengers lie beneath your feet,Count me as number thousand and one.I don't believe the sky is blue;I don't believe in thunder's echoes;I don't believe that dreams are false;I don't believe that death has no revenge.If the sea is destined to breach the dikesLet all the brackish water pour into my heart;If the land is destined to riseLet humanity choose a peak for existence again.A new conjunction and glimmering starsAdorn the unobstructed sky now;They are the pictographs from five thousand years.They are the watchful eyes of future generations. Thanks!
  15. I'm working on my essay for Works in Translation and I feel like my essay is kind of off topic and I was considering changing the topic question. Does this question sound okay for an IB Essay? In what ways does Antigone give insight into the Ancient Greek Culture? My original topic was addressing the influence of culture on the play, but I kept referencing the text and interpreting the culture through the text opposed to how the culture influenced the work.

    Peer review WL/WIT essay

    Could someone please private message me if they would be interested in reviewing my Works in Translation essay on A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen? It would be helpful if you were familiar with the play. Hopefully within an hour would be great! Thanks in advance!
  17. Hi! I just need some feedback and help with my written assignment topic on 'Chronicle of a Death Foretold' by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. So what do you think of my WA topic: 'How is magical realism used in the novel and what is its significance?' Should I narrow it down to: 'How does Marquez's use of magical realism in the novel affect its narrative?' Even if you haven't read the novel, can anyone suggest what are some other impacts of the use of magical realism; what are some of its purposes? Also, are there any must-mention things that I should include in my essay? Thanks heaps in advance.
  18. I'm meant to be writing my WIT essay on my chosen text which is Miss Julie by August Strindberg, originally written in Swedish. The idea I want to discuss is how Strindberg uses his play to explore dependence between the characters, on the levels of both gender and class and as a representation of humanity as a whole. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to go about doing this, how I should structure my essay - should it be chronologically structured or should I do it thematically? HELP!!
  19. I am doing my WIT on We by Yevgeny Zamyatin. I need help deciding the topic. Actually, I've already written halfway through, and my general focus has been on religious symbolisms and allusions in WE. I've played around with ideas that WE is a biblical allegory of Genesis. I've also hinted that association of OneState with Christian allusions suggests that Zamyatin was anti-Christian (he was). I've got good sources to support both my arguments, and I imagine I could tweak it a bit to support any good argument. But I can't decide on anything concrete (it's a common problem with me). Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks a lot!
