This is a comparative question asking you to examine the way in which ambition effects the actions of the characters and is represented by the authors. For comparative question, it is important to pick out both similarities and differences if you can. You must also ensure that you include quotations from both literary works. This can be both long and short quotations, however, when it comes to writing an answer under exam conditions then shorter quotations may be a better option. In addition, you must remember to include an analysis of the quotes used, historical context and critical analysis of the text. The critical analysis can include feminist, historical, marxist or political readings.
Here are a couples of example points you could include in this answer. Following your point you would need to added quotations, analysis of quotations, critical and contextual analysis.
1) Both authors present ambition as causing characters to manipulate those around them. Symbolised in the Wife of Bath by the Wife's need for mastery. In Volpone, the main characters manipulate those around them in order to enhance their position in society and their personal wealth.
2) Loyalty centres on what others can offer. In the Wife of Bath, this is examplified by her relationship with her husbands, particularly the first three. In Volpone, this is highlighted through the relationship between Mosca and Volpone. Mosca's growing independence and ambition throughout the play and his declining resilience on Volpone results in him double crossing Volpone.
These are just two examples of points that could be used to answer this question. You should plan to make three to four points in an exam. In addition, it is essential that the points you make answer the question so make sure that prior to starting the question you underline the key words, understand what is being asked of you and make a plan.see more
The focus in this question is the degree to which enhanced energy scarcity will effect politics on a global level. It is important to include a number of examples, such as Russian control over gas reserves and oil in Middle East. Here is a sample answer:
Energy scarcity will have an enormous impact on global geopolitics. This is as a result of countries, particularly in the western world, dependence on energy to maintain everyday life. Therefore, in order to ensure that supply matches demand many countries will take a number of actions that could impact global political relations. OPEC nations, many of which are in the Middle East, control c. 44% of global oil production and 50% of global gas reserves. The USA is highly dependent on oil from the Middle East and this oil is often from unstable areas, such as the Middle East. Therefore, increases in oil scarcity could result in enhanced US involvement in the Middle East, which could result in increased global political turmoil.
In addition, enhanced energy scarcity could result in expansion of energy activities into environmental sensitive areas, such as the Arctic. Extraction of Arctic Oil can have massive environmental impacts on the fragile local ecosystem. However, as the price of petroleum increases extraction of oil from environmentally sensitive areas such as the Arctic will become more viable. Thus resulting in enhanced political despites between indigenous communities, Governments, environmentalists and oil companies.
Furthermore, nations with greater energy reserves could use them as a weapon for political control. Thus highlighted the Ukraine ‘Gas Wars’ in 2006 , which resulted in Russia cutting off supplies to Ukraine, which impacted supplies into Europe. The gas dispute was arguably about Ukraine’s increasing relationship with Western Europe. This indicates that as energy scarcity, particularly in relation to fossil fuel access rises, nations with energy reverses could use this to gain political control. Energy Scarcity will have a significant impact on global geopolitical relations and nations with access and the ability to control energy supplies will have greatest influence over geopolitical relations.see more
