Text Transformations (AQA)

Asked by Ian.Caithness | Jun 23, 2008 | A Level > English > Coursework
Ian.Caithness asks:

One of the problems that I have seen with the AQA A2 English Language & Literature course is that numerous students fail because the coursework forces people to transform a text according to the standards of the examining board, which in its own right seems unfair because their understanding of 'literary value' differs from that of a seventeen year old student.

Regardless, I have the problem with some of the texts I have selected for transformations. I have considered numerous different avenues but each one seems to scream problems and I would much prefer one in which the words come with ease, rather than force myself to write in such a way as to show my lack of understanding.

Below, I have detailed the choices which I have made and I hope that you could provide some suggestions on possible transformations (one genre to another genre/sub-genre). Each text is different and is a different genre (I assume) which means the possibilities are endless, if you could provide them.

1. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
2. The Interpretation of Murder by Jed Rubenfeld
3. The Meaning of Night by Michael Cox
4. Redemption Falls by Joseph O'Connor
5. Song of Solomon, King James Version.
6. Revelation, King James Version.
