Worksheet Overview

"Jo (Switches on light): "Come on, the truth.""


What is the significance of the 'light' in the stage directions here?


The word 'light' might suggest shedding light on something and revealing the truth.


Here we are looking at the connotations of a word, what words suggest to us, and analysing their effect.


When you are exploring a character in the exam, you will need to show that you can use quotations to support your points and analyse the quotations to explore what they show about the character. 

In the following activity, you will be able to practise analysing Delaney's characterisation in more depth, exploring the techniques she uses and how these reveal something about the characters in 'A Taste of Honey.'


You should always refer to your own text when working through these examples.  These quotations are for reference only.
