Comparing Literary and Cinematic Devices
(Free Download)

This 20min video tutorial walks through the steps to identify, write and compare both literary and cinematic devices for the Comparative Unit in VCE English. Initially the focus is on the difference between literary, cinematic and narrative devices overall and then moves into different ways devices can be used as evidence to support different interpretations. Finally, the focus looks at how to either compare or contrast the devices through various scenarios. Although this tutorial has used the comparative pair of The Queen and Ransom as examples and evidence, it is still very useful for other text selections as well.


Included as a part of the tutorial is a downloadable worksheet that highlights numerous literary, cinematic and narrative devices that could be applied to any text selection and can form an integral part of your study for this outcome and an invaluable resource for the final exam.
