Okay folks, you will be completing a lit study tomorrow (Thursday 16th November) on Jane Eyre, for the following question:
Discuss the thematic significance of symbolism in Jane Eyre.
This will be closed book, so no plans or notes in front of you – you have tonight to revise, and the task we have been working on in class should be helpful for you.
Please also take into account the feedback from your lit study responses on setting last week:
- Don’t try to do too much – have a clear focus, established in your introduction.
- Have a clear point you explore in each paragraph/section, one that links back to your overall argument – some were all over the place. You need to PLAN.
- Phrasing – you need to read over your work, ideally at the end of each paragraph – some of these were the ramblings of a crazy person.
- It is still wildly obvious that a lot of you haven’t read the book – not enough quotations, a lot of vague references or assertions about what the novel is about/explores. I shouldn’t have to tell you how important this is, and it WILL be the difference between passing and failing.
