    Hey, is anyone doing Restoration by Rose tremain for their AS English Lit and lang course, it's just that I can'y find any revision or analysis material and it's getting realy annoying, 'cause there's revision stuff for almost every other novel except for Restoration. So do you know where I can find revision material for Restoration? Ohh, and how did you find the book?

    Hey ! There are probably no replies cause no one I know in any other schools do this book. I do it for English in College and it is so bad - mainly because there is nothing online to do with revision, it was actually a really unknown book written by the author - a clear bad choice from both my teacher and yours
    Anyway, as soon as she gives me notes for it I will post them x

    i have been doing restoration for my english alevel too.. i find it really hard so any of your notes would be helpful. -
    i have a few that you might like me to share with you;

    Merivels change in voice -
    Chapter one: samantic feilds : the atomical knowlage/ the body.
    > the heart, ulcer, ribs, organs, heal, puterfaction, suppuration.
    the use of short sentences show that he is thinking quickly and his life is moving at a fast rate.
    asides - uncommon but when they are present are there for a long time.

    low frequency lexis, pertubation, ravages, fandangling, nonchalently, rapturous, louche.

    Archaisums: runicund, bexiwue

    he has a eleborate/ fancy way of talking.

    Chapter 16.
    samantic feild faith and pain

    uses more complex senteces.
    more calm and mature & plain way of talking.

    im sorry i dont have more notes on chapter 16 i will try and get back to you with more notes.

    Relationships between merivel and pearce: M=merivel. P=Pearce.

    the heart/ chaper one: they learn together. P influence over M, shows their history together, p consice m knows it.

    Ps death: shared historry. M is M not robert.,Deep trust (P admits he is scared)

    after Ceilia incident M hears Ps voice. : knows p vlues has interniled m (m can hear/ think what p would what when he is absent.) p is present tho physicaly not there. p is like ms conscience, m conscience in ps voice.

    p at ms wedding: turns to p in time of need/ crisis.

    M present P as comic and rediculus but unreliable natarive voice so we dont seem to agree.
    P is there when M prays. (p is a god send?)

    Ps voice is : less flashy, religios tone, plainer than m.

    P hides his love for friends, harsh on his friends for their own good. criticul to people.

    i hope this helps you a little bit
