I'm not sure if close reading is hard or easy, for my textual analysis im doing the 6 Carol Ann Duffy poems which should be easy to remember, essay is just memorising as well. Its the 8 marker in textual analysis that kills me.

(Original post by jonathansmithx)
Just set it out as

Commonality(2marks): This poem explores the theme of ... as does .....
Extract(2marks): Quote one technique from the extract given and analyse it.
Other(4marka): Quote two techniques from the other poem mentioned in 'Commonality' and analyse them
That does help quite a lot when you put it like that, thank you. Hopefully its Valentine in the exam, or Anne Hatheway.
