      For Browning in June 2010 it was the patriot that came up wasn't it? and Auden was As I walked out one evening?
      For Browing it was the patriot and the pied piper.

      Like 10 days, guys! D:
      Scary :afraid:


      I'm hoping to really nail this exam and get better than a D in it :sad:

      I need 93 out of 120 UMS for an A which dependant on what comes up is possible but I think more realitically I'll be going for the B as I only need 73 to get that

      It's written in Spenserian stanzas - 9 lines, first 8 are iambic pentameter, last line is an alexandrine/iambic hexameter (which 'throws you out of rhythm' as I've written in my notes).
      It's a third person narrative.
      There is a transition from past to present in stanza XXII. Stanzas XXVI and XLI are also written in present tense.
      The narrator's voice can clearly be heard in the final stanza.

      Hope that helps

      Brilliant. That matches up to some of my notes

      However, doesn't it relate more to form than structure?

      Thanks XD Oh I see! Well that makes sense. Not gonna lie though, can't ACTUALLY tell your gender! And I have no idea to be honest, it translates as 'that girl' in Spanish and I'm a little Spanish

      Oh you nerd you! Ah well, whatever floats your boast!

      Tips for hitting A03 - when talking about a quote, try and give conflicting viewpoints from specific schools of thought. For example, steer away from the general: "some readers may feel.....while others may feel......" Because if you give a specific 'feminist vs religious' or audience of '1st reception vs modern day' ect - you can evaluate them much easier. And evaluating them is something that is Band 5/6.
      When i say evaluating them i mean explicitly find the "strengths" and "weaknesses" (as quoted from the band 5 mark scheme). Like i'm doing Rossetti - and because she was a devout christian, a religious reading may be the most useful in understanding her main thoughts and ideas; alternatively feminists may find her avant garde nature of writing empowering or belittling, just find the opinion specific to you.

      Hope that helps - i'm kinda sh*tting it tbh, exams coming up :|

      Ugh retaking this. My place on UNI depends on it Not looking good atm either. I don't understand how this is graded. I think this is a poor exam tbh, failing to reward how well you actually know the novel.
