please leave below revision tips//any predictions you may have for any of the texts. (These are for the 19th and 24th of May 2017 examinations)
Having read the sample papers, I believe Stanley as a character will not come up or is very unlikely to, moreover illusion was also referenced so that wont come up either, i'd suggest some meaty quotes and a few stage directions, id have a few critical interps up my sleeve as well,Great Gatsby probably wont feature hedonism so i'd revise tension/ deception facade, perhaps loneliness. Lots of flowery quotes would be good to analyse.
For example the theme of tention throughout 'TGG' can be seen with the frequent reference to heating in chapter seven
With facade you could talk about Gatsby holding thses parties which presents a persona of a man with many friends and ease in social situations where in actual fact Gatsby is lonely. Hope this helps x
