AQA Love through the ages Drama wider reading

I have included quotes, book titles and author names and detailed analysis as well as splitting the different quotes in the different themes of love

You have the main theme of love, link the given extract to your wider reading through themes of love (eg. Passion) this makes it easier t understand the extracts. I did this and recieved a B in the exam

Make sure to practice within the time limit (2hrs 30min) as time is very tight so you need to get used to it

Good luck
