Question 7

How does Jack’s visit to Algernon enhance the plot?

  • Jack’s visit to Algernon moves the story forward in the following ways:

    • It provides the background to the play and gives room to other unfolding events
    • It exposes the hypocrisy of the Victorian society on marriage.
    • It introduces the word ‘bunburyism’ to the reader.


    A good number of candidates attempted this question. Many of them merely narrated the story, rather than explain how Jack’s visit to Algernon enhanced the plot.                                                                                                                                                                                                      
    Candidates’ performance in the question was poor.
