For any of you sitting the exam I was wondering what you think will come up and how you're structuring your revision. Additionally are you doing rape of the lock??

You're doing this with CCEA right? What's your second paper on (16th may?)
For me: 1st paper- Lear/Thebes and the pardoner's tale.
2nd paper- The Stranger/The catcher in the rye and the butcher boy.

I've not even looked at Lear and Thebes yet believe it or not... I'm probably going to start it tomorrow

No Idea I hope it's about Tragic Heroes/Heroine or just any question of that kind regarding the main characters (Antigone/Creon/Lear/Cordelia) If it's concerning any of the minor characters I'm pretty screwed. What do you think/hope?

Do you have any information on Drama at that time? All I really know are things like Greek dramas were for worship/the chorus provided moral judgement. and Renaissance ones were more for entertainement... like what more could you say to compare them???

Yea it's on tragedy so hopefully! Not so sure about specific characters :/ just Lear, Antigone or cream would be ok. Our teacher is a new teacher and won't predict anything so we've literally no idea. Nope, I'm the same as you. Basically just learning quotes, context, know books inside and out :/ I've never heard of Renaissance in my life, I just talk about he Jacobean/Elizabethan audience..:confused:

Don't worry, Renaissance is just another term for that era!

Ahhhh fingers crossed that something that we can talk about comes up I pretty much have nothing to say about the sub plot with Edmund/Gloucester etc etc, do you??

The amount of English we actually have is unbearable, I'm resitting AS as well

Yes what the hell, moral message??? Uhm I was seriously hoping for a question on Tragic hero/heroine. Highly doubt I've done well in that. My section A was okay though (I think), how was your other one?

I know!!!! I was so confused. What did u argue? I said that because BAT is written for the gods it did have a clear moral message following the tragedy conventions however Lear didn't have a moral message only mini messages :confused: and that it was created for the purging of emotions and fear so didn't have a message.. :confused: terrible answer.
My other one rape of the lock was a bit sketchy but hopefully I did ok!! Hopefully.

Do you do jane eyre?

I said something along the lines of they sometimes show moral messages through moral characteristics of the characters, and sometimes use immoral characteristics to again present moral messages? I DON'T EVEN KNOW.

No I don't, I do the Outsider and the butcher boy on Friday
There's a CCEA Eng Lit thread btw, someone else might -

That sounds far better than my argument! Most people I spoke to seemed to argue both plays had a moral message!! :confused:, I didn't even specially say that burial at Thebes was a clear moral message just that it had one, while Lear didn't? ahhh! Thanks very much!
