Anyone here do Hamlet and the Importance of Being Earnest?? If so, predictions.
I'm thinking madness or corruption.
I'm thinking Lady Bracknell or even Canon Chasuble for characters.

I do both and my teachers are pretty dead set on Chasable or religion coming up for IOBE since superficiality and morality I think came up in AS but for Hamlet they're saying madness/corruption/revenge or a character. Ngl I'm stressed just thinking about it.

yeah i mean i don't like to talk about setting for street car; I prefer theme as the ideas seem more broader imo and yeah true expressionism hasn't came up so therefore it might me a technique question
(Original post by l.wil01)
Maybe a question about women for Othello? They've never had a female character before so maybe Emilia or Desdemona. I think Bianca would be unlikely so early on in the exams, especially as Cassio was quite obscure last year.

Streetcar I'm unsure about. I don't think they've had anything about Williams' use of expressionism or something like that. Or setting?

Agreed, hate talking about setting for streetcar. Will always choose the alternative choice :/
As for Othello I think setting may be likely to show up.

yeah haha imagine talking about belle reve and elyssian fields for an 1 hour haha. And yeah Ottomon empire and cyprus etc and locations like the bedrooms scenes location of the handkerchief scenes etc can be good pointers to talk about Othello imo.

I saw a question about 'minor characters' come up on a previous drama paper. Does anyone have any idea how you could discuss this for Streetcar or Othello?

steve eunice - how they live their life domestically in the patriarchal society in post war America. Emilia and how she views relationships and compare her ideologies with the main character (Desdemona's). Roderigo and Brabantio their manipulation by Iago etc. These are some pointers to go about maybe.

How the negro woman, street vendors, Mexican woman and other minor characters create the environment of New Orleans that Blanche is "incongruous" to.

Guys, if we get a question on minor characters, do you think it would suitable to treat Mitch as a minor? Or is he definitely a major character?

This is what york notes said:
'Steve and Eunice Hubbel
Pablo Gonzalez is one of Stanley’s poker-playing friends.
Other characters are the Doctor and Nurse, the Negro Woman, the Mexican Woman and the Young Collector'

I'm thinking for TIOBE it might be Miss Prism or Any of the women in the play. For anyone doing Othello, have a feeling it might be a question on women as well or Marriage possibly.

My teacher said possibly female characters, and morality which apparently has yet to come up in an Earnest exam. Does anyone do Twelfth Night, and if so do you have any ideas on what may come up tomorrow? Stressing to the MAX
