    Default Please take a look at my article

    Task:Your local newspaper has invited readers to send in articles
    on books they have read entitled "People thought differently then".
    Write an article about your chosen book,focusing on how the
    attitudes of society affect the relationship between the
    main characters.Your article should be around 300-350 words.



    People thought differently then

    Many classical novels focus on the theme about social standing and
    love,disaproved by society. In these books the main characters fight
    for the right to be loved and to live happily. One such romantic
    fiction is Georges Sand's "Consuelo". The story takes place in first
    in Italy and later on in the occupated Czech Repuclic.
    The protagonist id a young gypsie girl named Consuelo. She lives
    miserably in Venice as an orphan after the loss of her mother. The
    only people who care about the poor heroine are her music teacher
    and a boy by the name of Andzoleto. The outstanding details of Consuelo's
    personality are shown by the author in every scene. Despite the life,which
    for her is extremely troublesome,she is a very nice,kind,gentle and
    loving person. Even though the young woman isn't as beautiful on the
    on the outside she has a very big heart and a tender and melodical
    voice. Consuelo is in love with Andzoleto,a very good friend of hers.When
    invited to be a singer at the biggest opera in Venice with him she achieves
    more than he does. Andzoleto breaks her heart and she runs away to The
    Czech Republic,where she is a music teacher.
    In the"Giant Castle"Consuelo meets a thirty-year-old aristocrat-
    Albert. According to the locals the man is insane and dangerous.While
    living there the young woman rarely sees him. The peculiar person happens
    to be very intelligent and caring. He shows affection and love towards
    the shy and extremely noble girl. Albert's family stand their ground
    against the marriage. Consuelo is afraid and her actions are based on
    her desire to make everyone happy. She is confused-if she marries Albert
    they will both be rejected and hated by his family and all the other
    high-positioned people.
    After passing many obstacles and suffering the two young people
    finally live happily together. Nevertheless the opinion others expressed
    about their relathionship played a major role in their destiny. I beleive
    that if in those times humans weren't pressured bt their social standing
    and the society's opinion about them, they would definrtly have lived better.
    Even disapproved and disliked by some Consuelo and Albert's will to be together
    gains respect,praise and admiration by all common people.
    I'll be awaiting your replies.Thanks in advance!

    Here's your first paragraph:
    Many classical novels focus on the theme of social standing and
    love that's disaproved by society. In these books the main characters fight for the right to be loved and to live happily. One such romantic
    fiction is Georges Sand's "Consuelo". The story takes place in first
    in Italy and later on in the occupied Czech Republic.
    Yes, it does seem to be appropriate to the assignment.
