Ah nevermind mate, no problem after reading around here about english i have realised that not everyone does the poetry anthology :p: i used to think that everyone did that for the poetry section, but it appears not, some people doing all one poet which i think is weird lol but must be odd, many similarities in style and etc.

But good luck on it anyways, i've realised that its near impossible looking for someone doing the exact same thing lol.

Hey. I am doing "Translations", "Emma" and the poetry anthology. I don't know what you mean by your poetry but mine is a huge selection of poems, something like 25 out of the blue edexcel anthology.

As for questions, I don't really have ANY idea but I am definately going to use the following key points somewhere in my essays if I can

  • Critics quotes from critical essays (or other sources)
  • Mention the Napoleonic wars and how, although Jane Austen does not dwell on them too much in the book, she still recognises it
  • The difference between French manners (F. Churchill) and English mannerism (Mr Knightly). French being more on the surface, more fake and less meaningful
  • I read something about being aware of other books released at the same time : Frankenstein. Common themes between this and Emma are Romantic themes including isolation (Harriet is isolated in mannerism due to her lower class), love of nature (the many walks and scenery BOX HILL!) and loss (F. Churchills aunt)


I am quite nervous about Emma but I think I am OK for Translations and Poetry. Apparently quotes are not very important in our Emma essays compared to the plays that we are doing. For poetry just make sure you base your answer around the Who wrote it, When was it written and how does this affect the poem, Why did he write it and what were the intention and WHAT form/structure is it. The WHO/WHEN/WHY/WHAT!

Just trying to help, you got any tips? Good luck!!
