Well, I thought I'd ask first before I brag that
I'D PRACTICALLY DONE THE MURIEL SPARK QUESTION BEFORE!!!!
AND I got a B for it first time round. *struts*
We didn't do the textual annalysis because we did the creative writing thing instead, and my folio is outstanding so weeeee!
I might get an advanced higher out of this.

Wake, melancholy Mother, wake and weep!
Yet wherefore? Quench within their burning bed
Thy fiery tears, and let thy loud heart keep,
Like his, a mute and uncomplaining sleep;

We've picked our texts and dissertation books (we're doing three texts for the dissertation, although everyone on here seems to be doing only two?) and basically we've been advised to read the dissertation books and I'm planning on reading some of the texts too.
For my dissertation, I've picked: Pride & Prejudice, Mansfield Park and Persuasion, all by Jane Austen. Can't remember my question too well, I'll go hunt it down later on.
Really looking forward to doing this, wanting to do English Literature at Uni so taking this subject quite seriously. Also took Advanced Higher History and Higher RMPS just to get my essays up to a high standard. I was scoring about 22-23/25 for my Higher English essays, so still got a long way to go!

What texts are everyone else studying? [for the final exam & the dissertation]
It’s not that I literally think I’m a faerie. It’s just that I feel so different from most people. And this idea of a race living underground in caverns, spending all their days dancing and playing the fiddle and eating flowers and reciting poetry and sharing their dreams, that to me sounds much more real than the way people live in this world, hating and fighting and wanting and hurting. - FLB
Imagine that I can't be comforted at all , in pieces I went from crawling into a ball. Evidence, it's in my breathing every day, less and less and less. Can you hear me now, cause I'm not doing fine, I'm drowning in my mind again - LisaMariePresley

How far is everyone else with the course?
Can anyone from last year tell me - is missing the poetry unit a bad idea?
Also can anyone give me notes for Super-Cannes? Or even anywhere to find them. I've tried and I can't get them. Ta!

You could use The Hobbit cos its about the same kinda theme and was written by the same writer and you can compare the different styles of the same writer.
