Ok, so... barely even looked at the pre-release yet but from what I've seen so far I'd guess the main them to be changing attitudes to mental health over time
e.g. King Lear + Yellow wallpaper = older texts revealing Elizabethan and Victorian attitudes... i.e.
Lear: mental illness the sign of the heroes fall...
Yellow wallpaper: attitudes towards marriage + women as well as mental illness... loonies should be locked away... women (especially looney ones) shouldn't do anything creative.
CONTRAST: Bob Monkhouse + Thom Yorke = contemporary texts revealing more liberal and modern attitudes.
i.e. People with mental illness still perfectly capable of appearing normal and even achieving great things... However.. still a certain stigma >>> portrayal of Monkhouse
Not sure how to approach the study guide extract.. I'm sure something will come to me.
RIGHT, now i've got that off my chest...... What about the second question?!
I've never attempted it in practise and I have absolutely no idea of how to approach the damn thing. I have just under 36 hours... I'm stuffed

*Agrees*... loads of stuff in there, I actually find Q2 easier... because you can basically use the same phrases in any essay .

I find Q2 easier too, you get say 30 minutes on it if you manage your time and you can basically plan all you are going to say before you even go in :P
