is anyone doing jane eyre for gcses?Watch
yh i am! it doesn't seem like many people do it. I'm finding it harder than the rest of english lit cos it's such as big book with so many themes i'm finding it hard to know them all well
it had me rly stressed bc its so big but the exam question wasnt bad for me bc i revised the events related to jane being distressed. how did you find it? jane eyre is difficult so lets hope we get a bit more marks for it!
yeah same im glad it came up! how was paper two for you? even tho i had ozymandius i didnt like the paper bc there was so much to do and all my ideas were all over the place i think i did rly bad overall
If I remember correctly, we had a quote in which Juliet was talking to her parents (just before the bit where her dad gets really mad at her) and the question was about the portrayal of relationships between the younger and older generation. I spoke about Juliet and her dad, Juliet and the nurse and Romeo being distant from his parents as a contrasting feature.
It was honestly quite good, but as far as I can remember it was only before the fight. From the extract, you could only really analyse tension and formal language because it stopped before any of the name-calling started. If you remembered the next part of the scene you were set though.
We got Lord Capulet conciliating Tybalt at the Capulet party, a bit boring but enough to work with really. Our global analysis of the play was in response to a question about the theme of power. Once again, a bit dull, but definitely doable.
