Any good revision suggestions for memorising key quotes from your chosen texts?

My chosen texts are for A2; Macbeth, Frankenstein, Wuthering Heights, and The Pardoner's Tale

I've put them on postits all around my house and then try to write as many as I can remember down, and then go round checking if I've made any mistakes and write down all the ones I couldn't remember so I know which ones I need to learn. Also make mindmaps for themes and try to think of all the quotes you can for each novel, then add to them afterwards with the help of your notes/novels.

Another way to do it is to record podcasts of the quotes and listen to it over and over! For some poems, such as Edgar Allen Poe's Annabel Lee  (La Disputes - Three), bands have even covered the poem in song form which really helps getting it into your head :) And there's always the old look say cover write check technique!

Thank you :) I just always try to find as many ways in which to learn them- to keep it interesting ( well, as much as it can be). I think its a lot harder to memorise them if you do it in the same old boring way!

Write them on pieces of paper, read them all and then turn them over so you can't see the quotes. See how many you can remember :-) x
