I'm due to take my IGCSE World Lit exam next Friday and the book we're supposed to be studying is Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress. The paper gives you a passage and often they ask you 'How does the author make this a powerful moment in the novel?'
How do you answer that type of question?

Lol dude I also have my world lit on Balzac tomorrow. Try and find key words or devices the author uses, analyse it and maybe talk about its connotation. Another important thing is to memorise some key quotes from the book so you can use it in your essay to support your points. Oh and make sure you know the key themes, for example Coming of age, power of literature, Failure of re-education etc. Good luck! Hope it helps!
