    Hey guys,

    As you’re probably all aware, our English Literature exams are next week.

    I’m studying:
    -Macbeth
    -A Christmas Carol
    -An Inspector Calls
    -Power and Conflict Anthology

    At the moment, I’m trying to vary my revision, and I personally find helping and teaching others a really nice way for me to revise; it keeps things varied! In light of that, if you need any help with anything, don’t hesitate to let me know; I’ll do what I can. Xx

    Have you made a quote bank for any of those?
    If so can you give me one for Macbeth? I'm really struggling to find quotes that relate to themes
    I have quotes set for macbeth and lady macbeth but themes specifically, i just have no clue on

    Fair point. I suppose there wouldn’t be much to learn though, if we only considered our own interpretations; that’s easy for most. If we’re doing these exams, we should gain something from them. I feel that considering the intent and interpretations of others helps us to do that. Other than that... you’d have to ask the exam board haha xx

    Please explain what iambic pentameter is
    In poetry, a group of two or three syllables is referred to as a foot. A specific type of foot is an iamb. A foot is an iamb if it consists of one unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable, so the word remark is an iamb.

    Pent means five, so a line of iambic pentameter consists of five iambs – five sets of unstressed syllables followed by stressed syllables.

    I think messages, intentions and emotions are the things that get the high marks. Every book has been written for a purpose. And it also shows great levels of knowledge and understanding if you can spout out complex ideas linking what you know and the context of the text.

    What are some key pieces of information for Macbeth and An Inspector calls that you think will really help, if you know them. How much context should we have for the anthology?

    How would you structure a whole-text answer on Macduff, Duncan or Banquo?

    e.g. "How far does Shakespeare make you admire Macduff?"
    "To what extent does Shakespeare make you believe that Duncan was a good king
    of Scotland?"
    "How far does Shakespeare convince you that Banquo is a moral character"

    Knowing how GCSEs have gone so far, I'd say it's pretty likely the exam boards will try and hit us with one of these "edgy" questions.

    Wow, you're literally studying the same literature as me. Sorry in advance for the barrage of questions!

    - Which poems compare to which and with what themes?

    - What sort of questions can I expect on a Christmas Carol and what quotes would be good to learn?

    - Approximately how many quotes should I learn for each scene in Macbeth?

    - Will I need to refer to how An Inspector Calls would be staged?
