    From what people have said on previous pages for Lord of the flies it could be Simon/roger/Ralph
    For blood brothers I have no idea it could be anything. I find this play very hard to analyse as its very straight forward and there's not much to say
    What do you think will come up?
    Ralph probably won't come up bc he came up last year



    Personally I'm finding this exam harder to revise for, probably because the predictions for each text are less vague, & we have 2 texts not just 1 this time... Think about it though, this time tomorrow we'll be completely done with English Lit

    hey guys, for heroes, what is the likeliness of a character question about a minor character? or maybe a question that asks about the importance of minor characters?

    also, has the theme of love or heroism/bravery come up yet? those themes are my most confident ones. i don't mind appearance/reality either. as long as the theme is not war (i find that extremely boring)

    I think they would definitely be the only character questions which would come up for Heroes... It's just whether or not it will be a theme style question. I really really hope it's Francis as the others have come up before.
    how shall I respond to a whole text question on a character, please?

    - Nazis rejected democracy. Hitler demanded total loyalty and obedience. Jack is a Hitler-like figure - he seizes power and says to Samneric "you *got to* join the tribe".

    - Himmler was a very important figure in the Nazi party. Hitler put him in charge of organising the concentration camps. Roger has a similar position in Jack's tribe - he carries out violent acts for Jack and becomes the executioner and torturer.

    - Simon has relations to Jesus and Christianity - he is the peacemaker and the ethical boy of the group, and he is the envision of Christianity & Jesus. He helps the littleuns pick fruit and he meditates by going into the forest - "I wanted to go to a place - a place I know... Just a place I know, a place in the jungle".

    - The name Simon relates to Christianity as Simon was one of Jesus' twelve apostles and when he met Jesus in the Bible he changed his name to Peter which means "rock". This could mean that Simon is a "rock" for people, as he is the person everyone would go to for advice. Simon is shown here as having an important role of being the level-headed and ethical one in the group.

    So Jack is Hitler, Roger is Himmler and Simon is Jesus

    A theme style question wouldn't be too bad as, for the majority of themes, you can just cleverly switch round the question in to talking about all the main characters and their relationships. Francis would be a godsend but can't see it being him as he is the most obvious one to revise and wjec always seem to try and catch people out. I heard that the last three years were Nicole, Larry and Francis. Any of these three characters would be good as there is so many relevant quotes.
