The Merchant's Tale - Exam questions

(0)
This is a collection of Eduqas style A level Merchant’s Tale exam questions, they have been collated not only from past Chaucer questions but from Eduqas questions on other poets, other exam boards, quotes from critics etc. With it being a relatively new spec (and obviously no paper this summer) I very quickly exhausted past paper material in year 12 and have found this resource invaluable - they can either be used in a mock exam setting, revision, or just general practice.
A05 The Merchant's Tale (Chaucer)

A05 The Merchant's Tale (Chaucer)

(0)
These are a selection of A05 quotes that are relevant to the A Level study of The Merchant’s Tale. Drawn from various critical guides and essays, as a student I have often found these essays inaccessibe and often full of rambling/uncessary detail for A level study and certainly when approaching essays. As a result, I have created this useful sheet of compacted critical quotes, in a table containing the critic, quote, theme it pertains to and if it can be attached to a particular moment/page/line of the poem.
An introduction to Eco-Critical theory

An introduction to Eco-Critical theory

(0)
As part of my University Pre-reading, I am attempting to work through as many criticial schools as possible. The following is a very basic and comprehensive summary of Eco-criticism// Green studies. I feel that this would have been useful during my A Levels, particularly when studying Ted Hughes’ poetry and completing my coursework (which I did on Cormac McCarthy’s ‘The Road’) It could also be used for current Year 11’s as some wider reading between now and Sixth form if they are looking to study A Level English Literature.

Introduction to Post-Colonial criticism

(0)
As part of my University Pre-reading, I am attempting to work through as many criticial schools as possible. The following is a very basic and comprehensive summary of Post-colonial theory. I feel that this would have been useful during my A Levels, particularly when studying the Fin De Siecle period of unseen prose and my coursework. It could also be used for current Year 11’s as some wider reading between now and Sixth form if they are looking to study A Level English Literature.
A05 Plath and Hughes

A05 Plath and Hughes

2 Resources
This is a collection of my A05 critical perspectives that I have collated from key critical volumes like Byrne’s ‘‘Guide to essential criticism’’, Casebook series of Plath and Hughes , the Cambridge companion to Sylvia Plath etc These critical texts whilst helpful are often filled with academic jargon and uncessary details that I have never found valuable in completing essay questions. So instead I have created these documents with shortened quotes that can be adapted to suit essay titles. There is a box in both documents to label a particular poem/collection to each critic as well so the document can be adapted as it suits.
Context/A03 - The Merchant's Tale

Context/A03 - The Merchant's Tale

(0)
Contained in the document are key points of context relevant to Chaucer’s ‘‘The Merchant’s Tale’’ focused around the following key points: Power - socio-political context Gender Marriage Christianity Literary context Biography. The research is generally drawn from resources such as; *‘The Cambridge Companion to Chaucer’, The British library, JSTOR, Gail Ashton’s guide to Chaucer and the Casebook interpretation of The Canterbury Tales. The way that I have organised the information, gives clear points and direction as to how it could be applied to the text thus satisfying the top band of the mark scheme where context must have a symbiotic function, furthering literary analysis etc.

Loot - Joe Orton A Level. Completed analysis of the entire play

(0)
Having studied, Orton’s Loot I found it extremely difficult to find online resources to assist with practical A02 analysis of the play to A level Standard. As a result, I created this ‘workbook’ for myself which is in fully completed condition. Inside is detailed analysis of each page of the play, that corresponds to a question, so that you could either just use my analysis, or add your own thoughts as well!

Introduction to Post-Modernism

As part of my University Pre-reading, I am attempting to work through as many criticial schools as possible. The following is a very basic and comprehensive summary of Post-colonial theory. I feel that this would have been useful during my A Levels, particularly when studying my post 2000 prose coursework. It could also be used for current Year 11’s as some wider reading between now and Sixth form if they are looking to study A Level English Literature.

A05 Plath criticism ( A Level Hughes and Plath)

(0)
These are a complete collection of A05 quotes assimilated from various essays and critical works on Plath. When reading the essays listed they are full of academic jargon and rambling that isn’t necessarily accessible or beneficial to A level study. As a result, I have made this document with short quotes that can be used in an exam style essay. In addition, I have inserted a block in which students could attach each quote to a particular poem or collection

A05 -Middleton's Revenger's Tragedy

(0)
This is a collection of A05 quotes drawn from critical articles on *JSTOR, The Casebook Series of Three Jacobean Revenge Tragedies, The Cambridge Companion to English Renaissance Tragedy, Emma Smith’s podcast etc. Like my A05 resources on Plath/Chaucer/Hughes etc, they organise the critic and statement into a neat column, in quotable length lines that are easily adapatable to an exam essay. In addition, there is another box, that you can use to attach to a particular theme
