In the exam, you will need to be able to select quotations from an extract and explain what these show about a character or theme.
You will also need to refer to different parts of the text, using quotations to support your ideas. You should try to build a bank of quotations for each character and theme and learn these so that you can use them readily in your exam response.
In this activity you will practise identifying:
- who is speaking/being referred to in particular quotations
- what quotations suggest about a character
- what theme or idea is explored in a quotation
You should always refer to your own text when working through these examples. These quotations are for reference only.
