Hi!! This is a thread for those retaking english lit OCR AS level. I'm doing Jane Eyre and Yeats and was wondering if people had ideas for predictions - themes, characters and so on. i'm aiming to achieve an A in this but have completely forgotten everything i studied in year 12..!

I'm doing the exact same - I'm a bit unsure about what could come up for Jane Eyre and I have no guidance really because I moved to a new college who don't do the same exam board. I think for Yeats it will be a political poem this year as it's the last Yeats exam they're doing - either Easter 1916 or September 1913

Hiya! I'm in the same boat too, i agree, I think it will be a political poem, possibly Easter 1916 because its the 100 year anniversary this year, and going through the older questions they have only done themes and questions specificially talking about characters as Jane and Rochester either alone or together so I think they could possibly ask about St. John or Bertha! Hope not, but it's possible! Good luck with your revision!

Doing the same paper except fflr poetry I have Dickinson. I'm a bit worried about what question they'll give is for Jane Eyre and I'm struggling with my quotes.

I'm doing Edward Thomas Poetry and Jane Eyre at the moment and it's now the last week for just learning quotes and doing practice essays. I spent all of yesterday finding context and critical quotes for ao4 and ao3 respectively. So now I just need to learn them and my text quotes. So much to learn in so little time! :eek:

Should we all share our best bits of context/ critics? I think my favourite critics are, Bertha is a political symbol of female rage against patriarchy’- Gilbertand

Eric Solomon: Fire and Ice AND Water'Thefiery passion... must be quenched by the cold waters of self-control-- but notdestroyed by the ice of repression'
