Grammatik, kronologisk ordning och meningsuppbyggnad


Till engelska 6 har jag skrivit en "literary analysis" som ska reflekteras över tre kända verk. Skulle vara till stor hjälp om någon kan ta sin tid att rätta, grammatik, meningsuppbyggnad, ordformuleringar etc.


In love and war

In love and in war, a time sum with divisive love. An impossible love due to the era as the Elizabethan, Napoleonic War and second world war, take place. A forbidden romance due to the social norms of the time. What impact does the increased time scheme have on these works development? Is it conceivable that a love story of this magnitude could take place so quickly?            The time has influenced societies’ aspect on the different forms love could take. Is it still on a changing course? If so, where on do we stand.


To begin with, we have one of the most famous and exquisite love stories ever written, Romeo and Juliet, a play written by William Shakespeare. The love between Romeo and Juliet is amorous, passionate and pure, but it also has a fraction of destructiveness, painfulness and defiance. In the play, Juliet is being arranged to marry Paris, a kinsman of the prince, despite of her disapproval. The play sets an act during the Elizabethan era when the women were expected to marry whoever the father would hold appropriate. The marriages were usually arranged by the families of the bride in order to create a close family bond with other powerful families, which becomes the obvious environment in the play about Romeo and Juliet.


Secondly, we, have Pride and prejudice. The aspect of love in this novel was more about marriage than the emotional state. The novel sets an act during the Napoleonic War in the nineteenth century. Love was not crucial between a man and a woman. Instead, the ideal goal was to marry someone financially capable of supporting you. Due to this choice, passionate love was presumed to be less essential in people’s lives. Love was always secondary. Socially ideal marriage was the most common way to unite in the turn of the 19th century. Love was mostly difficult for many to find therefore social norms. Marrying because you’ve fallen in love was rare, it was often made to give the families some sort of benefit. The times Pride and prejudice plays out in, plays a big role in this story. The social norms of the time are the foundations of this story. On the contrary, Jane Austen’s Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth shows how love is the actual necessity, despite the war during this era.


Finally, we have Casablanca, directed by Michael Curtiz. The film sets an act in Morocco, during the second world war. Concurrently the film is a love story and affiliated with the political situation in Europe. A love triangle sets a hysterical act for the main characters, Isla Lund, Victor Lazlo and Rick Blaine. The war drove the characters to leave their belonging behind them, jobs, families and homes. Victor Lazlo and his wife Isla Lund who fought for the resistance, where forced to go to Casablanca and escape the Nazis. Rick Blaine a former love interested man of the young Isla had likewise leave Casablanca. If this story had been played out during a different era, there would perhaps been a different one. Ilsa would certainly not met Rick and Victor, nor would they have come to Casablanca.

To sum up, the play’s, the film’s and the novel’s theme of eras can be seen as a historical timeline, where all three works have their differences while the view on love is the common denominator. In a way we can say that both authors, Jane Austen and William Shakespeare speak for the women at that time and their difficult situations in love and marriage. The novel and the play have had a great literary importance. They give us a sensibility of love and marriage during the Elizabethan Era and the Napoleonic wars. Even though these two are from two different eras and are quite divergent do they still have a common theme in the concern of love and marriage. The film Casablanca shows us clearly how the war did affect the society, and how people managed to escape the Nazis.


How did, sociality, families, wars and the social norms of the time manage to influent people’s lives? Can our fairytale actually be our reality despite the era? The answer may not be that simple. Wars have divided, families have banned, and sociality have prevented the amorous, pensioned and pure love. Yet the history of humanity shows us so many varied approaches to love, so many different assumptions about how couples are supposed to get together and so many distinctive ways of interpreting feelings, we should perhaps accept that the prevailing environment beyond our bedrooms does have an impact on love and our relationships.

Jag kanske inte är riktig behörig att svara på din fråga, men efter en snabbläsning kan jag inte se så stora problem i texten.  Ta dock allt jag säger med lite salt!

Det enda jag kan säga är:

"How did, sociality, families, wars and the..."

"how did sociality, famillies, wars and the...."

Inget kommatecken? ;)


"common denominator."

Denominator: something shared or held in common; standard.

Behövs verkligen common?

"Rick Blaine a former love interested man of the young Isla had likewise leave Casablanca. "

Det klingar inte så värst bra i mina öron.

"The war drove the characters to leave their belonging behind them, jobs, families and homes."

The war drove the characters to leave their belongings, families, jobs and homes behind them"

Kanske det i stället?                                              Plural!                      Skulle hellre flytta dem dit.

"Secondly, we, have Pride and prejudice"

Kanske istället: "Secondly, we have Pride and Prejudice

                                                                                   stor bokstav!

Om någon annan ser att jag rättar fel, rätta mig!
