    A01 - Ideas and themes
    A02 - Language/Structure/Form
    A03 - Links to other texts
    A04 - Context; this can be social, historical or cultural


    An Inspector Calls is marked against A01 and A02
    Of Mice and Men is marked against A01, A02 and A04

    I haven't done those two texts but here are some ideas to consider.
    For AIC - are there parallels, maybe between the end of the acts? How do the openings of each act/scene contribute?
    For OMAM - who does the reader see the situation from? How do the characters' way of speaking reflect their education/status? Foreshadowing? Parallels?

    Cliff hangers and foreshadowing in AIC. Form is a play so need to look at the stage directions and what they show. Also priestly uses the inspector as a mouthpiece for his views and the play is a microcosm for the capitalist society of the time. Also audiences would have watched the play with heindsight of WW1 and 2 so would view Birling's views as stupid cause he's wrong (about the nazi's and the titanic etc)

    OMAM cyclical structure which echoes the migrant workers lives and how they're monotonous. Also foreshadowing in many chapters (George telling Lennie to come to the river if he gets into trouble) (Lennie injuring Curley, and about to attack crooks but kills Curley's wife) also omniscient, 3rd person narrator who doesn't judge the actions of the characters.
