Answer:

When teaching writing, one should always remember the fundamental significance of writing and writing well. It is the most effective method of communication, and should therefore be treated with the respect it warrants. Each student is at a different skill level and requires different forms of assistance, so it is vital to get to know them before offering any critique. It is important to develop a level of familiarity and comfortability with the student, so that the tutor is able to offer assistance best suited to their specific needs.

Answer:

By studying a piece of literature in a critical manner, one becomes better acquainted with the time period of which it was written, as well as fundamental elements of human nature. A critical study takes into account the various eras of literary criticism and theory, and works to apply those key concepts to the work in question. Literature is then altogether enhanced and deepened by critical study.

Question:

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë is considered to be a classic gothic novel. Why do you think it is categorized in this way?

Answer:

Jane Eyre was published in 1847 in the midst of the Victorian era. This era saw the rise of the first industrial revolution, which prompted various political and social reforms. Notably, the writer Charles Dickens explored these themes of economic unrest through the eyes of Britain's lower classes, ultimately affording them a voice. One may argue that Charlotte Brontë wrestled with this theme in her own unique way in framing Jane Eyre as a gothic novel; the title character experienced various supernatural/inexplicable events throughout the narrative. These events could represent the general state of social confusion and unrest during the Victorian era, by heightening the issues into dark and even frightening manifestations.
