11 pages
Purpose
Describe a bleak and lonely gothic setting.
Description
In this lesson we rewrite a single paragraph from Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, describing being trapped outside a house on a moor. The focus is on descriptive detail that creates a sense of being exposed and vulnerable in a slightly hostile environment. We rewrite the passage clause by clause, and then pull it all together at the final checkpoint.
