    Aw thank you I shall try to remember your words of wisdom! But I am getting quite nervous, as much as I keep trying to calm myself down!

    I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO FOR SETTING FOR ROSETTI/AUDEN. WAH
    i

    Setting for Auden:

    Miss Gee: The setting effects the mood of the poem -> first part fairly cheery but 'winter wrecked trees' mark turning point after which things go downhill.

    As I Walked Out One Evening: Auden uses setting to convey the passing of time. At the opening of the poem auden mentions the 'brimming river' & continually mentions it throughout eg. Stanza 3 'river jumps on'. The last line of the poem is 'the deep river ran on' The river is very symbollic as it represents the message of the poem which is that whether you live or die, life goes on. Auden uses setting to convey a MORAL message.

    Hope that helped

    anyone doing enduring love - i just wrote this on symbolism for joe's gun

    Gun – represents final straw for joe. He has crossed the line, no longer sure who is good or who is bad. Questions are raised as to who is truly the mad one, jed is there begging for forgiveness and joe is pointing a gun at him. That shot represents final blow in joe and clarissa’s relationship, she looks at him with “such repulsion” that it is difficult to recover from that to where they were. Point where he actually fires the gun is like the end of a scene. The next page is joe reflecting on what he has just done, by doing so the reader can also reflect on what has happened and digest the intensity and implications of it. Gun is a symbol of anarchy, when joe feels he can no longer rely on science and logic he turns to violence. A feminist might say joe is being chauvinistic, using a gun to assert his authority and dominance. A psychoanalytic Freudian reading might show that joe has given into his id, his primal urges of aggression, rather than relying on ego and superego – rationality, intellectualism. I feel the psychoanalytic is the most effective as it shows a complete reversal in joes personality, it shows that even the most civilised man can be pushed over the edge.

    but i dunno what i would say for setting, or even which settings i should choose. i was thinking the field at the start, talk about how tranquil it is until the balloon appears. the place where joe gets the gun. also mrs logan's house, how the lack of care in terms of cleaning it reflects how mrs logan no longer has the will to do anything, she doesnt care about her own appearance anymore either.

    also, does anyone have any notes on symbolism or setting for any of thomas hardy's poetry?
    thanks

    You got anything about symbolism on the Curious Incident?
    I'm thinking that it has no symbolism in it and that's the point. You don't necessarily have to write about what's there as sometimes what's not there is more important. Something to do with Christopher placing little value on things as he just reports rather than evaluates?

    On the other hand you could say something about how Father and he spread their fingers out and put them together to symbolise love and trust instead of hugging. Can't think of anything else right now

    Section Ai is AO2 language form structure the Aii will be context, forming an argument based on the question, interpretation no AO2

    Hey everyone!
    Just wondering what Browning question people think will be asked tomorow on the paper, as I have only really started revising over the weekend and want to reassure myself I have studied the right poems! A bit late now, I know but any predictions would be good!

    The great skill of Fitzgerald is to create a character which is as much a figment of his own imagination as he is the reader’s.’ How far do you think this reflects the author’s presentation of Jay Gatsby.

    how would you approach this?

    I've done notes on chapter 1, 2 and 3, just look in my recent posts on my profile. I tailored them around section A though.

    Iampic pentameter. Its the closest beat to natural speech/heartbeat. My teacher describes it as 'de-dum-de-dum-de-dum'. 10 syllables per line I believe. Its good as its quite open to interpretation

    It's not necessarily pentameter... could be tetrameter (4 stresses) , hexameter (6 stresses) etc. Also, I've been told that it's more interesting to talk about where the rhythm is different, rather than where it's all the same (use of trochee, anapaests etc.)

    this will sound really stupid, but I was doing a mock today on the significance of openings in 3 texts, and I just couldn't come up with much for The Great Gatsby other than Gatsby sounds mysterious :s does anyone know any on the top of their heads?
