Option 2c - The Detailed Study.

'A detailed study based on an aspect of ONE of the World Lit texts.'

This can be:

  • a formal essay
  • an analysis of a key passage (and this actually needs to be a KEY passage: that is, one which is of fundamental importance to the development of the text in some way)
  • An analysis of two key passages from one work
  • A commentary on an extract (of about 30 lines)

NOTE - In IB-speak, a 'commentary' is a detailed textual analysis which tends to focus tightly on one short extract. An 'analysis' is more concerned with using a short extract as a 'way in 'to a discussion of the whole text. Yes, I love these utterly arbitrary distinctions also.
