Anyone got any ideas on what could be a likely essay title that may come up for Jane Eyre this year? I know you can never really predict it, but what do you think or have been told may come up, my teacher said religion hasn't popped up in a while? Thoughts?

I was thinking religion as well but with the secondary text (The Magic Toyshop) I'm doing, there isn't much I could say to compare or contrast. What secondary novel are you doing?
I'm hoping for Role of Men or even the Supernatural!

Yeah I'm dong the magic Toyshop too and I hope as you say that something on patriarchy or gothicism comes up because there are so many pertinent links to be made with Jane Eyre!

Yep!! For Gothic, you could bring in Rochester, Bertha, Fairytales & the Supernatural elements surrounding them both. Also about Thornfield and how it's described & identifies with it's inhabitants Rochester & Bertha but not Jane. You'd link this to TMTS by talking about the role of Uncle Phillip, his general dark presence, his oppressive rules & temper etc. Agree?
I'm retaking this from last year so I might be completely wrong. Lol 😩

Funnily enough I'm retaking this too as I got a B last year and I'm hoping for an A so that I can get an A overall.I agree with you yes, that when it comes to all things gothic you can talk about uncle phillip and even the severed hand Melanie finds in the cupboard. You could also link it to the idea of bluebeard and the bloody chamber also by angela carter!

Ahh! Didn't even think of the hand, nice one!

I'm trying to find some examples of magic realism in The Magic Toyshop but I've come to a loss. What do you think?

Ah, I got a C. I'm hoping for a B overall. Kinda pessimistic about the exam tomorrow 😩

well you can talk about the mystical qualities of the moon and the idea of lunacy in the garden on chapter 1 where melanie puts on the wedding dress. The moon almost signifies a sense of supernatural and witchcraft.

have a close look at that section

The unseen I found a bit tricky but overall I thought it was quite good. The desire question threw me when I first read it but I understood it after a couple more reads you?

I did the Home poetry and the first one was quite tricky and weird in my opinion.
But overall, the desire question was quite good and also the unseen poetry. Easily to understand for me.

I think the only named poem for Home was My Father Played the Melodian. I did the one on poets writing about a stereotypical view of home, and the Jane Eyre one on desire

Section A - Calm
Section B - Calm
Section C - did intro - p1 - p2 - p3 - p4 - conclusion so 6 paragraphs and ran out of time so rushed conclusion...
17 + 34 + 25 = 76.
Got 76/80 in CW.

I'll either scrape A or miss A.
I pray to god its the former.

Did the poem for the unseen section and found it fairly tricky to understand.

I did the question on stereotypes of poetry about home which was good I guess and did the extract question for Jane Eyre which was on suspense

got carried away doing the prose question as i had too much to say, so i rushed the poetry essay and couldn't manage to do the last unseen question. considering the fact that i was retaking it and i need an overall A, i'm sorta disappointed in myself. it was fairly easy though

It was 'My father played the melodeon', I compared it to 'The House of Hospitalities'

This was a retake for me too and I'm hoping for at least an A overall for English!

I assume you're also doing unit 3 on war texts and poetry - the exam being on the 11th of June - how you preparing for that?

I'm just getting back to revision for unit 3 after weeks of doing unit 1.
I'm mostly looking for links across my texts and the poems and trying to memorise quotes from critics and learning the context around each text.
