Do I need to compare two texts in EE English Literature

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I'm doing my EE in English A Literature and am going to focus on something to do with Macbeth. Would I have to compare this to another of Shakespeare's works or can I solely look at Shakespeare's characterisation in Macbeth? Which would give me more marks?

Thanks

Whichever one of those approaches that allows you to do a more thorough analysis and bring out the best points is probably the answer to your question.

Hi, it's dangerous to only use one text, though it can be done.  I would suggest an analysis of MacBeth but use several texts to gain insight/context. I'm happy to provide more support, just ask.
