For Donne it will be a love question most likely however there will also be a question on either religion or death. I am only revising the religion and death poems and going with whatever the question is rather than wasting my time on the various love poems.

I'm hoping for the Divine sonet to come up as the religion/death question.

As for Lear/Thebes I'm looking over the themes of Family/reconciliation, Divine order (Gods influence), Justice and authority.

As for your last books I have no idea sorry (We are doing Huckleberry Finn and The Bluest Eye for the childhood essay) and Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha for the extract.
