    I read somewhere that Chapter 5 and 6 has not come up. Curleys Wife and Lennies death is the only thing that happens there.

    Edit: I've seen a question from my teacher say describe what methods stb uses to show the reaction of diff characters on Curleys Wifes death.
    Maybe there could be one like that on Lennies death

    Does anyone have any good in-depth quotes for how Steinbeck represents Slim?
    "Prince of the ranch"
    "ageless"
    "majesty"
    "all talk stopped when he spoke"
    "word was taken on any subject whether it be politics or love"

    Hope this helped!!!

    Anyone else got RS and this English lit exam on the same day? -.-
    Yup- I'm so annoyed that they put two heavy essay papers on the same day. They should have put RS on the same day as a science instead or something...

    My friend and I make up random exam-style questions, such as ow does the author use the setting in 'Anil' to reflect the key themes in the story? etc, and take it in turns to suggest a point you could make. I also look at past paper questions and make little mindmaps about how I could answer the question (like key quotes, ideas etc.)

    in part a you should talk about the character or theme displayed in the passage you get, for example if its a passage from when Curley's wife is at the doorway, you would talk about her personally so her heavily made up face being a mask, her promiscuity, theme of loneliness if you can bring it in etc. and then in part b talk about how Steinbeck uses her to display how women in society were judged on their face, clothes and how this could be the reason behind her effort to attract attention and then talk about the whole novel from start to end, so you could include something about how even in death, she is called a '*****' and a 'tramp' and this displays men's attitudes to her, so in part b you can bring in more themes such as the minority group of women and their treatment from men and get quotes from when the workers discuss her.
    did this make sense? I hope it helped!
    Thanks a lot! Yes it did help. I always get confused with what to write in part a) and part b), but this confirmed what I need to do. I just hope that I can remember this under exam conditions, ahh!

    How to structure.

    1) 5 mins plan at the start-- pick out 5 points, quotes and small explanations.
    2) Use Point, Evidence, Explain, Link Method.-- P.E.E.L
    Point= answering the question with a basic point.
    Evidence= A quote from the text to back up your point.
    Explain= Explain how the quote shows you are right, build up on the quote, back up your evidence.
    Pick out key words, language features and tone in the quote and show how it may impact the reader.
    Link= ALWAYS link the text back to your question and ALWAYS explain why the author has used this quote and what he wanted to achieve.Always include context. (e.g 1930's America was an extremely racist period to have grew up in.)
