    Hi. is the exam on the 20th May (tomorrow) about short stories? such as 'compass and torch' or about poetry like 'quickdraw' etc? I'm confused reading these posts as i done poetry in my last literature exam..

    I know tomorrow has questions about of mice and men aswell but is it short stories and of mice and men or poetry and of mice and men?

    How would you structure your essay on OMAM?
    ermm...
    part a

    i woud chronologically work down the extract

    no intro here
    annotations on page would be my plan

    part b

    intro - 2 compound sentances... 3/4 lines max
    point 1
    point 2
    point 3
    point 4

    no conclusion

    For those doing The Crucible, what points could you make on the Putnams? Since I would have thought that they were minor characters...

    To kill a mocking bird and an inspector calls. Hope nice questions come up. Any ideas? English is so hard to revise for and to guess what is in the test.

    I'm doing those too! Okay, so, for English Literature, although you probably already know this, PEE is pretty vital.
    That's Point
    Evidence
    Explanation

    When you get your question, do a brief introduction and then answer it using the PEE chain; so make a point, find a quote to back it up and then explain your point further. Separate your main points into paragraphs, and that's the basic structure. Oh, and a brief conclusion. Good luck!

    Does anyone know any good sites or resources for poetry techniques and caesura and hyperbole etc; I've figured that techniques are all I can revise for poetry

    this is what I though, like I know people say giles and mary are minor characters but they play a much more important part in the play than the putnams who simply use the trials as a way to seek revenge. I don't think that they feature in the play enough as they are only in Act 1 and briefly in act 3, unlike mary whos in 1,2 and 3 and giles whos in 1,2 and 3
