    Hey ! If the Putnams do come up tomorrow this would actually be quite a good question as you could fully explain the idea of how power was abused in Salem to achieve personal motives, and how the hysteria allowed people to finally avenge these vengeances and express hatred and bitterness because they are doing so under the disguise of supposed Christianity.

    I can analyse a few key quotes if you would like?

    Good luck tomorrow x
    Omg yes please!! Thank you so much xx

    I've been told it's 45 mins for section A and then 45 mins for section B and they are worth the same amount of marks. Am I wrong?

    I'm on the exact same boat as you but I'm doing Of Mice and Men instead of tkam haha. Cliffnotes is also a good website for revision, and yeah you'll definitely get by if you're getting As without revision, plus any controlled assessments that you've completed will bring up your grade too
    thanks I'll have a look at it, good luck to you too! and I wish but I'm pretty sure I messed up my ca...shakespeare doesn't bode well with me lol oh well

    I'm looking at past papers and you're completely right, I have a gut feeling it'll either be on the Putnams or the judges

    hi there anyone wanna help me with how to structure the essay preferable how to do one for kindertransport or of mice and men
    For OMAM, I recommend doing part a and part b separately as it is easier and less confusing
    Part A - intro, 3-4 paragraphs and conclusion
    Part B - intro, 3-4 paragraphs and conclusion

    Choose quotes from the beginning, middle and end from the extract as this shows you've understood the whole extract. Similarly, for part B, use quotes from the beginning, middle and end as it, again, shows the examiner that you know the novel and understand it.

    Haha your'e welcome, I feel like this is the best way for me to revise so I don't mind (I have a tendency to ramble so I'm sorry in advance lol)

    1) "I am one of nine sons; the Putnam seed have peopled this province. And yet I have but one child left of eight" I think this is perhaps the most useful quote in analysing (some of) the reasons for the Putnam's frequent accusations of others during the witch trials and is very cleverly used by Miller to explore the idea that perhaps the Devil's work is not supernatural, but instead motivated by greedy and self centred 'Christians' in Salem. The quote itself suggests that due to the Putnam's status and societal position, they expect everything to follow suit, and because it hasn't, the only thing they can think to do is blame others (namely Rebecca Nurse) as they will not accept responsibility themselves.

    2) "It was Putnam who signed the first complaint against Rebecca" [this quote is from the writer's notes which you are allowed to analyse!- obviously theres not much close lang analysis but...] It's hugely significant that the Putnam's feel like they have the authority to challenge Rebecca when her almost Godly status is considered. It suggests that the hysteria gave people more confidence to express what they had previously hidden and also completely messed up the social hierachy- Rebecca goes from being admired to resented and Abigail and the girls use religion as a weapon of manipulation and go right to the top of society to the point where "the voice of Heaven is speaking through" them and therefore they are completely respected as no one will dare to criticise the court in fear of being associated with the Devil.

    Hope this helps! I wrote some more stuff about Puritanism and Reputation earlier on in the thread (page 27 ish) if you are interested

    good luck !! xxx

    It would literally be a gift from God if Abigail came up but I can't see it happening Definitely revise the Putnams though because I don't think anythings been asked on them before (well, recently anyway)
