    I couldn't find a thread for this particular exam (6ET01), so I thought I would start one

    How are you revising for this? Is anyone else doing Jane Eyre and Wide Sargasso Sea? Do you think you'd go for poetry or prose in the unseen section?

    I'm doing Wuthering Heights and The Color Purple, and we do the unseen poetry. At this point, just going over quotes from the novels and techniques used in the anthology poems (I'm doing 'Home' poems from the Rattle Bag). Good luck to everyone for tomorrow!

    I'm doing 'Home' as well. Just trying to think of poems I can easily link together before I go into the exam. I hope I can use some of the longer poems like Wanderer or Autobiography; I find them so much easier to analyse. Good luck to you too and to everyone else ^-^

    Strange, isn't it? Very few people on TSR are on Edexcel for Eng Lit :yep:

    How did your exam go?
    I didn't do the same texts as you, but I did choose the unseen poetry

    It's from Here to Eternity (Andrew Motion) :yep:
    What do you mean by the wrong one?

    I did the question on thematic depth for poetry (whatever that is exactly :confused: ) because I disliked the other question so much, I think it went pretty well though. For Jane Eyre and Wide Sargasso Sea I did the question about suspense, I think that went really well too, far better than I was expecting (although I'm paranoid I wrote the wrong question number, I hope that doesn't affect the marking ). The unseen however wasn't too great, I did the prose although I wasn't keen on either. I'm not exactly sure what "sound devices" in relation to that piece but I tried with it, and the question about "voice" caught me out as well, I thought it meant dialogue since it was third person narration but I'm not too sure. I just have to hope I think

    there's also a "chimney sweeper" poem in the anthology about work. I commented on this one, and not the one about 'here to eternity'. who's Andrew Motion?? "chimney sweeper" is by William Blake?

    Yes, that is the same anthology, I just gave it it's proper name :yes:
    There are different anthologies which different places use - in the question all 3 were about work (it was the work question, after all!).

    "The Chimney Sweeper" is by William Blake, yes

    Did you mix up different anthologies? I'm confused.

    From the 'extract' bit about the fire I talked about short sentences, use of fear and mystery, then the panic when she realises. I compared it to the house fire scene in WSS. Then I talked about when she is hiding from John right at the beginning, and in WSS when Antoinette is bullied by the other children in the way to school. The last point I made was about when Jane thinks she is going to die when turned away from Moor House. I'm not sure if those were the best examples but I think they were pretty good

    Awh I'm sure you did fine :jumphug:

    The first thing I did when I'd left my exam was to look it up :giggle:
    The more I look at it, the more I like it...

    THE city's heat is like a leaden pall
    Its lowered lamps glow in the midnight air
    Like mammoth orange-moths that flit and flare
    Through the dark tapestry of night. The tall
    Black houses crush the creeping beggars down,
    Who walk beneath and think of breezes cool,
    Of silver bodies bathing in a pool;
    Or trees that whisper in some far, small town
    Whose quiet nursed them, when they thought that
    Was merely metal, not a grave of mould
    In which men bury all that's fine and fair.
    When they could chase the jewelled butterfly
    Through the green bracken-scented lanes or sigh
    For all the future held so rich and rare;
    When, though they knew it not, their baby cries
    Were lovely as the jewelled butterflies.

    I spent far too long writing about it though, which messed up my timings for the later questions :cry2:
