    Hello!
    Are there always character questions in English literature papers? I'm doing An Inspector Calls, and surely i could just learn each character off by heart and not bother with themes?
    Thanks Jade

    I didnt study the book, so its best to do past papers so you familiarise yourself with the breadth of questions asked. Thinking back about English lit I seem to recall that its a risky stragey to question spot, so I wouldnt go in with just one type of question as if they did just themes then you might have trouble. Look at the past papers and have a backup plan even if you specialise on one sort of question.

    you link themes associated with that character for full marks. i mean you can talk about a character for ages, and in your essay surely one bit will have what theme they represent too right?
