Hi so I've begun the HSC Extension 1 course and have studied the movie Bright Star and Frankenstein. I was wondering if anyone could suggest some related material for these two texts. Anything would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You :)

Hi mary_winchester,

I've just begun the HSC Extension 1 course this term and am studying Mary Wollstonecraft's A Vindication Of the Rights Of Woman, Shelley's Frankenstein and some Coleridge poems. Just as a suggestion, perhaps Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter?

All the best with your studies!

I've decided on:
Common Sense, Thomas Paine
London, William Blake
Snowstorm: Hannibal and his Army Crossing the Alps, J. M. W. Turner
Darkness, Lord Byron

I'm worried that they all verge on the dark or the political, without much on nature or eternity.
Thoughts?
