Reappraisal - Assignment Modules

Including A Passage to India, I have four assignments to do between now and the end of April. Sounds straight forward enough, but I have a tone of research to do - even at this stage.  My main problem, is that I cannot double up and use the same texts. Therefore, I cannot compare Monica Ali's Brick Lane with A Passage to India, or reuse Orwell's 1984 again; not can I compare Ibsen's A Doll's House (20th c) with Jane Eyre (19th c).  However, I can slot Ibsen in with my other final draft assignment of Jane Eyre in TH2 and I can reuse some of these text in next years sitting.

Anyway, back to the present.

SP3 - Discuss E.M. Forster's portrayal of India in A Passage to India (2,000 - 3,000 words).
I have started this and I am sure that my musings will be logged on here as per usual.

IL3 - Using one example of each, contrast the writing of the 19th and 20th centuries (1,000 - 2,000).
I will probably have to speed read Brick Lane and see if there is an 19 c equivalent or rethink a few things.

TH3 - Reading a text from two perspectives (1,000 - 2,000).
Maybe Brick Lane here instead - or not.  Have to read a few things ASAP

IN3 - Can literature have a political purpose? (1,000).
LOL - just thinking of my A Very Hungry Caterpillar opposition speech from last week.  Would love to get that in somehow, but probably can't.

All of this is to be at least 3/4 done before May as next month is about turning every one of these suckers round. In total 12 full essays plus Transactional Writing - 4/5 pieces with revised commentaries for port folio; Creative Writing 4/5 pieces with revised commentaries for port folio.
