Fiction analysis questions and re-creation task

Using a fictional extract from The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, this resource includes some short analysis questions and then a creative writing task that aims to create a contrasting mood.

Sample content

Contrasting description - re-creation task 
 
  1. Write the opening of a description of a funeral wake/after funeral gathering that is in direct contrast to the description you read in this extract (aim for 150-200 words). 

Base your answer closely on the style and structure of the original extract. Make your description and mood serious and gloomy.

In order to use a similar style and structure, you could include:

  • an opening that starts with a description of the wider setting.
  • a description of the place/room/building where the event will take place.
  • a general description of the mood/emotions of the group.
  • an individual description of a character and his/her feelings.
  • a brief description of a character that seems out of place.
  • a third-person narrative.
