What notes do you write when reading a novel?Watch
I’m currently reading Wuthering Heights for English A Level though I’m finding it hard to get into and find into. I found reading Margaret Atwood a lot easier because I made notes mainly on the synbolism of the book. (eg how women were treated) Sounds stupid I know but what do you look out for when reading a novel and what quotes do you need to memorise and does anyone have any tips in getying top grades? Or has anyone read Wurhering Heights that could give me some help?? Thanks )
You then have three sets of notes imo.
1. Structure and plot to understand what happens when. A revision guide gives you that.
2. Characters and motivations because you often get asked questions about characters.
3. Themes and authors perspective.
English notes are odd imo and you really need to get used to trying questions early.
and then i do a summary on a post it note of each chapter/scene and stick it at the end of that chapter.
works for me though
i personally love margaret atwood, are you studying handmaids tale?
