Poetry & Drama Terminology

You will be aware that the OCR GCSE places much emphasis upon the skilful use of terminology in evaluating and analysing texts, not only in the Literature papers, but in the Language papers too. With this in mind, one of our wiser and keener pupils requested that we podcast on the matter.

Not wishing to disappoint, we have done not one, but TWO recordings - the first you will find here, in which we tackle some of the key terms you will find useful for tackling poetry and drama (and specifically, Shakespeare) tasks. The other, exploring the terminology of prose can be found in the 'Modern prose' section of this site. Enjoy!
