Hi,
I am currently coming close to the end of my first year as an AS english literature student. I am studying Love, two-year Alevel course (1171/1172); pre-1900 love poetry, Othello, Handmaidens Tale, Rebecca, Feminine Gospels, Street Car named Desire and self-study novels. I would much appreciate ANYTHING that could help , any resources, any advice, any material, any notes that helped people ... anything!
Thank you,
Anna

The study guides by Nicola Onyett are the best ones. I do Handmaids, Feminine Gospels and Streetcar also. I would advise to write a prepared essay structure that you use every time and is guaranteed to get you high marks.

Hi

I am in my second year of studying English literature so my final exams are in a fortnight. I do tragedy which is Othello, Tess of the D’Urbervilles and Death of a Salesman. Then social and political protest including Songs of Innocence and Experience, The Handmaids Tale and The Kite Runner.
I find that the best way to find new readings of the texts is through essays you can find from searching online. I tend to read through and make notes from there. Its so useful because it gives a good idea of what impressive essays are like, giving inspiration for you in the exam. It also presents some really interesting ideas which incorporate authorial methods and integrates it into the essays to make arguments which are pretty cool to understand.
Good luck x

Hi, I'm also in year 12 and do othello, Tess of the d'urbervilles and death of a salesman. I recommend buying the York notes guides and also going on google scholar and typing in your selected novel and getting as many critical views on the text as this is helps to link in with a04 and a05, good luck everyone with your exams
