    I'm doing a practice paper (June 05 - what fun) and 1 b seems to be mainly about women's writing. We haven't done much on women's writing in war literature yet except we watched some film about Vera Brittain which was a bit crap.

    So far, in terms of typicality, I've got that their writing seems to be more emotional and the subject is either on their helplessness or their strength.

    But what else? I've run out of things to write! Has anyone else done this paper, or knows what I could put?

    Thankies.

    ah, women's writing from a certain age might have been more emotional. read virginia woolf's 'a room of one's own' and perhaps 'to the lighthouse' for a bit of insight into it. the latter is not only about women and their art, but is also a landmark in modernism literature. there are two main women characters; one of which is a traditional, domestic mother figure (based on woolf's own mother) who might represent these women writers from previous years. the other, lilly briscoe, is a young woman who defies these dated conventions which women comformed to; she is not so ready to get married and, as an artist, paints in a new, symbolic and impressionist way (this is an allusion to the change in women's writing). worth looking at. neither books are that long.
