    In my English Literature exam the other day(books) For section B, question a I wrote about how language is used to describe Lennie's death, but everyone else I've spoken to said that you shouldn't talk about language as a point for that question. HAVE I COMPLETELY MESSED UP?!

    I'm pretty sure you can write about language (unless I have been lied to )

    Honestly I think you are fine, I also talked about language in section a. As long as you back your ideas up it's fine, I'm sure you did great!

    Talking about language may well get you extra marks. Analysing the language in quotes is a good thing to do and it gives you more to speak about. As long as you tied in themes and context, you should be fine.

    for the essay, it's more about reading between the lines, unless the question you answered has some element of language features in it.

    Don't worry.The mark scheme criteria says(for section B) "Evaluation of the writer’s uses of language and/or structure and/or formand effects on readers"
