Gcse Anthology Essay

 
  1. Hey everyone. An idea just popped into my head. So i was thinking, if anyone has written any good essays for GCSE English Literature questions (doing the new specification) it will be really nice if you could share them by uploading them onto this thread and other people could use them for revision or to improve their own essays. I'm doing the 9-1 AQA English Literature GCSE and I'm studying: Romeo and Juliet, Inspector Calls and A Christmas Carol and as for the poems, I'm doing the power and conflict poems (cluster 2) from the AQA poetry anthology. If anyone has essays for questions on either of the books or essays for any of the poems in the anthology, which you think are of a level 7, 8 or 9 standard, please upload them to this thread. If you've handwritten them, take a picture of the essays with your phone and upload the pictures or scan them in.

    Thanks in advance <3

  3. I don't have any good ones. Mine are mostly at grade 5. I was hoping that others would upload higher level ones. If you want grade 5 ones, I could upload a few if you want.

Which of the two essay structures works better when responding to the example essay question?

Structure A

IntroductionHow both talk about family relationships between parents and children
Paragraph 1How Walking Away deals with family relationships - themes and form, structure and language
Paragraph 2 How Eden Rock deals with family relationships - themes and form, structure and language
Paragraph 3 Ways in which they are similar
Paragraph 4 Ways in which they are different
Conclusion Sum up comparison

Structure B

IntroductionHow both talk about family relationships between parents and children
Paragraph 1How the themes and ideas of Walking Away and Eden Rock are similar and different
Paragraph 2 How the form and structure of Walking Away and Eden Rock compare and how this links to their effect
Paragraph 3 How the language of Walking Away and Eden Rock compare and how this links to their effect
Conclusion Sum up comparison

Feedback

Either of the examples above could produce a good essay as they both explore each poem and compare their similarities and differences. However in structure B, the comparison takes place throughout the whole essay and avoids looking at the poems separately. This is a better model to use and one which can be applied to comparisons of other poems.
