    Really thinking tragic hero or modern audience will come up for lear/burial and maybe morality tale or preaching for Chaucer? What do you think though?

    Agreed, hope it's modern audience though. I'm doing John Donne rather than Chaucer, really not sure exactly what to expect but it'll be something to do with man's relationship with God...

    How's everyone feeling for it??

    honestly have no idea!! could be anything, they have never went into topics like a social satire which could be possible? Modern could also come up but I honestly have no idea! butcher boy is easy, it's only analysis of methods but always include the following though:
    -Stream of consciousness
    -spatial organisation
    -textual organisation
    -temporal organisation
    -long, rambling punctuated sentences
    -Cowboy language
    -vernacular
    -Tonal shifts
    -retrospective narration
    -highly subjectivised narration, everything focalised through the POV of the deranged Francie Brady
    -unreliable narrator
    -His limited self awareness, ironic gap between his perception and the readers
    -his preoccupation with trivial things, e.g sweets
    -free indirect speech (absorbs others speech) when the speech is in speech marks these words had a particular effect on him

    relevance to modern audience would be EXCELLENT but it come up in tragedy, so i don't know if it would come up a second time this year. it's really hard to predict because there are only four papers on the CCEA website :\ idk why, but i have a feeling about social satire? for no reason, just kind of a gut feeling? good luck tomorrow anyway!! x

    It wouldn't be that bad, I just dont think I could write an A grade answer on it, but on that note, someone from our centre got 42/60 in section A and 37/60 In section B last year and got an A... due to the grade boundaries having to come down so low. I need ABB or else I aint getting into Queens also
