    I've used this site in the past to gain ideas and help with other work but I'm really struggling on 'Wise Children' by Angela Carter.
    I'm re-sitting it in January (I got a D first time around) and really want to do well on this unit.
    I know the text throughout and remember quotes, but my only trouble is structuring the essay, for example, I don't intergrate my quotes well and don't talk about Carter's techniques well enough and have trouble coming to grips with what carnivalesque, magic realism and have trouble when talking about critics views.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Get a tutor to teach you how to write essays. About carnivalesque and magic realism, what do you understand about them so far?

    Ask my a paticular question and I'll be able to help, otherwise I don't know what to help with, other than "Wise Children" and essay structures in general.

    I'm studying it by the way, becoming a dab hand at it as well :p: So feel free to ask for any help anytime.

    i frigging love wise children, as is evident in my user title :love:
    dora is my favourite narrator ever
    and yes, i echo the above. specificish questions please
