Hi guys,

Ive got 1 week and 5 days till my A level AQA English literature A exam and I’m stressing out about section B and C. I would appreciate it if anyone could give useful tips on how to analyse poems and compare them for section B. For section C I’m doing The Great Gatsby in comparison to the ‘love through the ages’ anthology booklet that we’re given. Does anyone have any ideas on how to effectively link the two texts? One being a post 1900 novel and the other a booklet full of poems. I find it hard to compare 3 poems to the novel so if anyone has any tips / advice that would be very much appreciated.


Thanks


P.S. hope your revision is going well!

Personally, I think the best approach is to focus on themes and link them, also the different approaches to similar situations or contexts and how this links to the writer's purpose of each individual text and why it is the case?
Perhaps the structure of the poem could link with certain tones and paces of sections of the novel. This is just a few ideas, I hope it helps.

Haha luckily for me I’m fasting so no distractions but revision 😂. Food was one of my biggest distractions. After every 10 mins or so I would just go downstairs to either get water, fruit, sweets or anything really 😂.
