i just done my mocks and for english literature paper 2 i didn’t complete section c, unseen poetry. Any advice on how to analyse your own texts?
Look for the rhyming pattern and the language devices e.g personification etc. You could also see how the poem is structured.

I have an essay on Macbeth I could share with you. Also, if anyone needs any help with essay writing I am more than happy to help. Look above on this thread for more information on what I did for English Lit.
Please could you give me essay writing tips just in general so that I can apply it to both papers?

I do macbeth/ ACC/ DNA and power and conflict

in english i am more weak in literature compared to language.
does anyone have any tips on how i could improve my analysis because that's where i struggle the most.
also does anyone else do DNA cuz there's barely any resources for it except revision world which doesn't go much into depth.

get a blank text of the books and analyse them using genius. it's the best way to revise! and after u analysed one act/stave or even small scenes, make quote banks for character and themes. it really helps!
