AQA Classical Civilisations 3C - Greek TragedyWatch
What do you think are the main themes we could be asked about?
Some of the questions can be about the structure, too - use of only three characters plus the Chorus, use of dramatic irony, or how dramatically effective do you find the openings/endings of the plays? For these questions, think about what 'dramatically effective' could mean!
Hope this helps... feel free to PM me if you're still struggling!
I'm having issues with the 40 mark essay question! Such a limited time frame to discuss all 4 plays.
In terms of other themes you could look at the portrayal of love too. I would make sure that you know some technical language as well to really impress the examiner (I.e hamartia, etc).
How are you revising the plays? I don't know whether I should learn key quotes? I'm really struggling with remembering the sequence of events in each play. Those pesky 5 markers 'explain the circumstances that have led up to this point in the drama' really do not sit well with me.
