    Ok, so I have been sweating it out over the last few weeks in preparation for my English Lit AS.

    I'm at around A grade in poetry and novels, but for the play (Streetcar Named Desire) I just keep getting Bs. I thought the last essay I wrote would push it over the boundary, but what do you know? I get it back today and B++. What even is that grade? My teacher wrote this guide on points to use and I'm convinced he just won't give me an A because I use my own ideas as opposed to his.

    Anyway... If anyone wants to mark it and tell me what they think then be my guest....

    The question is 'Elysian Fields may be a vibrant place, but the only practical response to the world the play depicts is to seek refuge in illusion.' In light of this comment, explore Williams' dramatic presentation of illusion and reality.

    Unfortunately I cannot read your writing so I can't help. If you scan it or type it out I can give you some pointers?

    But I think a B++ is one more point off an A or it could be an A- in disguised. I wouldn't may attention to it.

    Are you discussing dramatic presentation and effects, making sure you're analysing stage directions and misc en scene too?
