    The Merchant's Tale was okay, I found that doing the Tempest was way easier but when they asked for the portrayal of three characters, I struggled as there was not enough time but the passage was good, that paper was easy. And for the Bloody Chamber, I reckon it is about feminism or how Carter links love/infatuation through dominance maybe?
    I think it could be a monstrosity question or how is the idea of transgression/ uncanny is explored throughout the stories

    Can someone tell me what the tempest questions were exactly?
    I reckon number one was how does the play explore fatherhood and the second one was, 'Caliban is nothing more than a "savage and deformed slave,"' I chose the second one.

    A D isn't bad at all but I reckon boundaries will be low for grades. What stories out of the collection of Carter's are you most confident on?

    Of course, it was the basis of my actual essay, and the fact that Prospero turned his back on Caliban when he attempted to rape Miranda and did not teach him right from wrong etc. What did you choose?

    Ah see The Bloody Chamber is the easiest, go for Wolf-Alice and the Company of Wolves too, as well as the Snow Child as it is under two pages long.

    Are they? What grade boundaries do you go by? My teacher based them on last year's percentage and then had a guesstimate really.

    Ah right. Yeah it was easy and I am surprised I had it in me to revise all this last night and actually put it into use, I was worried my quotes would be irrelevant.

    Yeah I know, it's odd. We can only but guess what the boundaries will be.

    I did that all day, however everyone will have done stuff differently, no point worrying about it.

    True, as long as you've done the best you can do and show that you've understood the text then you should be okay.
