How do I structure my exam essay on narrative techniques?

  • 0 votes

I've been studying Kite Runner and Enduring Love and I'm okay at the essay questions apart from the exam questions on narrative techniques.

"How is the story told in chapter ...?" I already know the different types of narrative e.g. voice, time, setting, character etc but whenever I do the essay I always seem to get low marks =/ I'm not really sure what it is

The poem section for me is the easiest but its this that I really need to understand becaue I'm definately missing something

Whenever you make a point use  a quote to back up what you're saying. Also i would advise you use critical terminology e.g   " The use of the narrator using first person is effective" " The noun used here conveys... " This will allow you to get maxium marks.

Also don't foucs on the whole story pick out key events and write about them in detail.

Hope this helps **
