    I've been researching and found that it's a crucial thing you need in your answer along with language analysis,but it's difficult to talk about. I know OMAM is cyclical ,but what else counts as structure? And do you need to talk about it in an inspector calls too?

    P.s I should know this 2 days before the exam,but I've had a cover teacher for a large part of the school year :/ and she taught us nothing!

    Definitely include the fact that the novel takes place over 3 days (Thursday evening - Sunday evening) and that the novel ends in the same location it begins. Perhaps this is Steinbeck's way in presenting the American dream, no matter how much money you have you will always just end up in the same place you began. As for other forms of structure I am unsure like you, and am also unsure about the inspector calls part as you may be on a different exam board to me.

    Hello! Ok so let me help you out a little...

    The whole novel is balanced in somewhat way, it starts and ends outdoors at the pool. It starts while life and dreams, and ends with death... The stuff in between takes place indoors at the ranch.

    Although it's a novel it's written like a play!!

    * This works well because the entrances and exits are some of the key moments in the novel.

    * Each chapter has just one location

    * The location descriptions at the beginning of each chapter are more of instructions to a stage designer, they are very specific giving the reader a definite visual image of where the action takes place.

    Hope this helps!
