    Hey guys! i kinda think Gerald will come up yet his the character i know the least, can someone give some key points and themes priestley uses to present Gerald

    Thanks!!
    He is the play's example of a member of the upper class. Stage directions say that he's 'well bred'. He cheats on Sheila and agrees with Birling's views about responsibility. By presenting Gerald in this way, Priestly is showing the bourgeoisie to be socially unaware and immoral people.

    How are people revising for OMAM? I've done some character key quotes and analysis' but I feel like they would be useless as we are given an extract.
    The extracts are likely to be on the key events in the novel, so make sure you know what each key event is, where in the novel it is and why it's important. All the key events link to George and Lennie is some way so make sure you know that.

    Candy knows that his Dog should be killed because it's too old. It's too weak. George knows that Lennie cannot live in such a harsh world with his disability - this was at a time when people had little understanding of mental illness. He knows that he's going to keep causing trouble even though he doesn't mean to, and he knows that back then nobody would understand. His mental inability makes him weak. Both Candy's dog and Lennie are killed out of mercy, they have no place in such a ruthless society. You could say something about how Candy told George that he wishes he'd shot his own dog - because it's his duty as his friend/owner. So this foreshadowed George killing Lennie.

    Like Candy was responsible for his dog, George is responsible for Lennie. When Candy says "I ain't outta let no stranger shoot my dog" links to George shooting Lennie as they were so close and Lennie only had George to rely on.

    Does that make sense?

    MA28613; thank you!!!! that's really perceptive and i really like your vocabulary. Good use of context too. I guess you could link Candy's social hierarchy and because of his low position, he didn't have the power/ ability to confront the men with agression and kill the dog himself. So yeah George learns from Candy's mistake.

    navjotkaurjohal; thanku!!! I get it all now, thanks guys. Also thank you very much for the evidence, appreciated

    Modern Text: Purple Hibiscus
    Play: An Inspector Calls
    Poetry: Character & Voice

    I haven't read Purple Hibiscus all the way through, we read it in class but I think I have a problem, i just cant sit down and read a book, it's just so boring, but ive read like chapter summaries and like the first 9 pages.

    Love An Inspector calls tbh, i think i'd be alright

    Poetry, I don't even know about poetry tbh. I'm gonna have to try and get better in the novel lit paper, than poetry because poetry is just a no no for me

    I do OMAM and An inspector calls for the texts and Place for poetry. I've revised context and attitude/themes for both OMAM and AIC, but what do you think the questions could be. Who could the character be for the OMAM passage or theme and same with AIC?

    Yeah exactly!!! But how could you discuss candy in the ending scene? like george and lennie linking to candy and his dog?
    I would say that Lennie's death is significant through structure as Candy's dogs death also happened in the same way- therefore it was foreshadowed. Candy's dog was shot in the back of the head and so was Lennie. But apparently this scene already came up in a previous past appear- someone said so idk if it might come up now.
