Hey guys!

I'm making this thread open to anyone who has questions about the AQA English Lit because between us we can probably answer each other's questions. But I'm also starting it to ask a specific question; do people know how to approach the questions that ask "How does the poet tell the story in this part of the poem?" I don't think they're worth tons of marks, but I'm not sure exactly how many.:confused:

For me, this question is about the Ancient Mariner by Coleridge, but I know that other people have different set texts.

Basically, anything you can give me is helpful!

Thanks!

It's 21 marks for this part of the question. You go about answering in terms of aspects such as narrative perspective/voice, structure and setting, if you can't find enough to talk about, you can also discuss form or genre. We were told to refer to the effect on the reader each device has.

I have an exemplar answer to how the story is told in the Great Gatsby if you'd like, but I don't seem to have any on poetry saved.

(Did this course last year)

Okay, thanks so much!

If you don't mind, the exemplar would be really useful just to get an idea of essay structure etc..

Also, I'm doing Gatsby next term, so it's still relevant for me!

I found it useful to read the examiner reports from the AQA website as they really tell you what they are looking for. What other texts are you doing? I did this exam last year with Enduring Love, The Kite Runner, Auden and Browning. I have some exemplars saved if you want me to upload them?

Hi,

I'm an AS Lit student and I'm studying Streetcar for my coursework close analysis - I am so far over the word count. I'm doing the scene when Stanley attacks Stella? How did you find/are you finding Lit coursework?

I'm doing Gatsby and The Kite Runner too - two great books! I'm also doing Browning's and Rossesti's/Auden's poetry.

For the coursework, I did one essay on The Taming of the Shrew and got full marks. Our second essay is on One Man, Two Guvnors, which we're currently drafting. Are you still doing your coursework - it feels like my school have ran through the texts!

I love Kite Runner! I'm not so keen on Gatsby, but I don't dislike it.

We finished officially doing the teaching for the coursework in October, it did feel quite fast! I've finished one essay and I'm drafting my second over Christmas! Our school don't tell us how we've done, but I think it must be okay, or she wouldn't have let me hand it in...
