- Throughout this guide, a past exam-style question based on the play Macbeth has been used to illustrate ideas, but these have been written in a way that will allow you easily to transfer the idea to any other exam text, whether another ‘Gothic’ text or Pastoral.

- That you know your text well.
If that condition has been met, through classroom and personal study along with research via the Internet or other study guides, then this guide should help you achieve the...[ read full article ] »

Civilians, freedom, democracy, women and children, unity, join together, friends, decisive, liberation, success, safeguard, justice, co-ordinate, free world, civilised world,...[ read full article ] »
