How to study a novel?Watch this thread
Thank you in advance!
You might also find mind-mapping the quotes based on theme/character/chapter helpful, then figuring out which ones you're most likely to use OR which ones apply to multiple characters or themes so you cover more ground.
Some other things I've heard but haven't tried are:
* Apparently just repeating quotes out loud and writing them down is supposed to help memory (I think this is called the Feynman method?)
* Mind palaces, picturing your house or your room in your head and associating quotes with objects like your mirror or a pair of shoes
* This one sounds a bit weird but just adding it anyway, I've heard that napping after a bit of revision helps your brain store the information in your long-term memory (science students, feel free to correct me!)
Hope your essay goes well!
