Romeo and Juliet and two poems: Visiting Hour and Church Going. I'll see which one's more fitting once I get in to the exam.

Yeah, but Church Going is easier to write an essay on since longer poem = more quotes = better essay happy.gif

We're studying the film The New World and also A Streetcar Named Desire so i'll hopefully do something on either of those two. We are also studying short stories by Anne Donovan but we've not gone into much detail with that so i doubt i'll do it on that. Good luck to you though. smile.gif

Well i like visiting hour, its a good poem that is reasonably meaty with imagery etc, and its not too long, you have to be careful u dont laden urself with quotes unless u r totally able to analyse them in detail(not saying u cant do that) but i find it better to take a few quotes and really get deep into them. biggrin.gif

I'm doing "The Great Gatsby" and "A Streetcar Named Desire" though I feel like I can't remember much themes for Gatsby 'cept for the green light. Which symbolises too much stuff.

we studied "A Streetcar Named Desire" but i found it easier to write about marrakech by George Orwell and 'Limbo' by Seamus Heaney as i was more likely to finish two essays with time to check over it i tend to write too much for Streetcar

You managed to pull that off for Higher? That was something we were told to do in 3rd year as part of our folio blink.gif Although I suppose there's enough in it to write a Higher essay on.

Yeah, but it's got a lot of substance to it. You could easily write 6-800 words on just about any drama question with it.

Well, I studied The Crow Road by Iain Banks as prose; at first it appears somewhat 'rubbish' but after a while you realose that it has got real depth and substance. For poetry we concentrated on a poem called The Death Of Marilyn Monroe by Edwin Morgan, and for drama, Othello. I would definately reccommend the Crow Road to you though.
