    **** guys, the ****ing ****ty exam board have changed everything, the bloody *******s. Poetry has changed and the amount of ****ing focus that the *******s have put on the ****ing context means you basically miss a whole **** load of marks if you don't ****ing write about it. ****ing *******s means that **** **** *******s are making the whole ****ing exam about 300 ****ing times harder. ****
    How has poetry changed? And is this the thing about them putting a load of focus on the context? :LL

    What points could you make about mrs dubose and the setting of maycomb in an essay question??

    Mrs Dubose:
    -how she is a symbol of bravery and she shows maycombs racism
    Her "strands of saliva" can be linked to the fact this is an ugly concept and leads to her physically disheveled appearance which also shows maycombs racism within this as this too is part of their disgusting nature. Her morphine addictions makes her in to the "vicious" women she is but by weaning her off it before her death makes Atticus believe she is the "bravest person I ever knew"

    Maycomb:
    this can also be connected to Mrs dubose as her camellias show maycombs usual disease" of racism. This is due to the fact camellias are nice on the outside but have a horrible smell which shows a parallel to maycomb with its lovely exterior but they're racist inside.


    Anything anyone else could add would be helpful!

    If Maycomb setting is one, there is so much you could say! The house as a symbol of somewhere Scout and Jem are taught by Atticus morales etc. The school where Scout is needing to be dressed as a "lady", and all the issues at school that come with it, Walter Cunningham etc. Then you've got the courthouse, my favorite quote of which is the one about "ancient Greek revival columns clashed with a 19th century clocktower housing a rusty and unreliable instrument" or something along those lines, you've also got the "all men are created equal" in court quote. Then you can talk contextually about how it is in the deep south and how it was very racist in the 30s etc and how the book was published in the 60s when there was a black power movement going on. If that question comes up then there is so much you can say!

    same goes to Candy ! how the **** am i supposed to write a 20 mark about him, someone help , what are the main things i can say 4 paragraphs
    Some that I have:

    - He's pessimistic towards himself as he knows he doesn't have much use on the ranch & is in denial about a lot of things incl. his dog
    - He's influenced easily and is oppressed by the upper members of the hierarchy on the ranch
    - He also represents the theme of loneliness after his dog dies
    - He cares a lot about The American Dream to the point where he will defend it in front of a person he's normally fearful of (Curley's wife)
    - He wants to have control - "He was the master of the situation" - over something in his life as every other decision is decided by society and the members of the ranch (again about the scene with him, Curley's wife and Crooks)
    - He's selfish, though I don't have much to back this up with
