I started revising for the exam a few days ago, going through important quotations for the novels and trying to get alternative interpretations for them all. I'm studying The Kite Runner and The Great Gatsby - both books are great so I hope I do well when I'm answering the questions on them. I'm planning to do Section B with both novels and then another poem that I didn't answer for Section A because I think the Section B questions work better with novels. The questions seem more open since they have to cover all texts on the syllabus.
I'm studying Rossetti and Auden poems. I don't mind poems, but I find some of them annoying. I agree with BeautifulBossx~x that 1st September is really annoying. There's a lot of context but not much of a story... I don't really like Victor either. In the exam I hope the Auden poem is 'Musée des Beaux Arts' because I like that one (maybe because it's a short poem so I can remember everything?! Some of the poems (especially Rossetti's Goblin Market) are so long. Although they'll only ask you to write about a small section, it's still a bit annoying.) James Honeyman and As I Walked Out One Evening aren't too bad either.
For Rossetti I hope either In The Round Tower or An Apple Gathering come up. They haven't been on the exam before and I think I can analyse both of them well. I'm revising through all of the poems this week and then I'm going to do practise questions on them next week to consolidate my knowledge...
I'm doing The Great Gatsby (love it) and Enduring Love which I hate! Can't get my head around it or distinguish the narrative techniques McEwan uses! The stress is real.
I'm doing Gatsby and Enduring Love for my novels and Browning and Tennyson for poetry. I did Enduring love for my section A in the mock exam and managed to get an A, however I do feel that poetry is WAY easier for Section A Part A because you can easily pick out form/structure/language.. so it's a hard decision! I hope all of your exam prep is going well <3
