    On a scale of 1-10 (10 being most ready), how ready are you for tomorrow?
    7ish... I haven't really done much learning new quotes - i'm just going to cram them in tomorrow morning, but I'm fine about ideas and themes.

    Guys, if we're struggling with critical quotes, could we literally write: Richard Smith said that "Sybil Vane is presented as a variety of characters - with the exception of herself". ?
    I read somewhere to just write any name, at the end of the day hundreds of people will have written some form of critical analysis about Dorian Gray, if you really cant remember and you write a random name its unlikely they will recognise but just try to learn 2 or 3 really broad critical quotes, such as
    'a benchmark of decadence' Patrick Gullispie
    'so stupid and vulgar a piece of work' Stuart Mason
    'Wilde refuse to subject his art to a moral message' Koen Von Cauwensberger
    you can probably include this in almost any essay, the quote you've given sounds perfectly usable to me

    Ahh thanks for doc - it's helped me expand my discussion on women also I've read that sibyl parallels dorian in terms of character and being a living work of art - e.g. You said something about sibyl being a caged thing so was dorian in the novel!! It's quite interesting aha
    Thats a good point, thank you! If I find myself needing to talk about Sibyl i will most definitely use it as I certain have very few ideas of my own about her

    A lot of people have been saying that 'Easter, 1916' will come up, however, I think that it's too long for them to put it in. Similarly, The Cold Heaven is a bit too short and The Cat and the Moon could be too simplistic. These are just guesses though.

    I'm so scared for this.

    Do we have to include critical quotes for Frankenstein, or can you just say "The Marxist view is that...?"

    I don't think it will be any poem about feelings for emotions because that came up last year, i think it will be about memory or something like This is no petyt case of right or wrong that would be good to discuss
