Transcript of TALK IN LITERATURE

TALK IN LITERATURE
Why do writers use TALK in Literature?
IMPACT THE PLOT
Fill back story
Slow down
Focus on a particular event
Move the story on

CHARACTERISATION
Reveal aspects of a character by what they say and how they say it.
Reveal aspects of character by what is said about a speaker
Reveal aspects of character by how they respond to others
Concentrate on a particular relationship
DRAMATIC IMPACT

Create a context, the background of the society
(attitudes and values)
To establish a tone, atmosphere
To establish perspective
WHAT DOES THE UNSEEN QUESTION ASK?
Compare the two texts, commenting on the ways in which they reflect the
differences
and similarities between talk in life and talk in literature
. You must explore the
relationship between context, purpose and audience
, the
use of narrative voice
and the
ways in which
speakers’ attitudes and values
are conveyed.

FUNDAMENTAL TO THE EXAM!
Should be linked to every paragraph
NEW FOR 2013
Final paragraph if not throughout.
IN YOUR LAST ESSAYS
You tackled the transcripts well
BUT...
The Literary extract was less secure. You treated it in the same way as the transcript - it's not, we need to highlight the differences between TALK IN LIFE AND TALK IN LITERATURE.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN
TALK IN LIFE
AND
TALK IN LITERATURE?
TALK IN LIFE AND LITERATURE
STARTER TASK
What can you remember about the
GENDER THEORISTS
that we have studied?
Keith and Shuttleworth
Women talk more, are more polite, support one another and are emotive.
Robin Lakoff
Women hedge, are super polite, are grammatically correct and lack humour!!!
Deborah Tannen
Men use language to dominate, women to confirm ideas
Eggins and Slade
Women tell emotional stories, men tell naughty ones!
Was it difficult to remember?

Look back over the prezi on moodle.

This clip pretty much sums it up...
CAN YOU REMEMBER THE WORDING OF THE QUESTION?
MAIN TASK
Today we will look at talk in 3 different literary forms. You will recognise these texts - we've already discussed them

I want you to consider how each writer USES talk in Literature - I want you to consider how far the gender theorists can be applied to these texts.
I have a FRAMEWORK sheet that you can use to help with your analysis.
In small groups look carefully at each text.
Consider the use of TALK in each extract.

Remember that the question now also asks you to comment specifically on NARRATIVE too.
USE THE FRAMEWORK TO HELP YOU ANNOTATE YOUR EXTRACTS AND THE MARK SCHEME TO PITCH YOUR NOTES AT A TOP BAND.
TEXT 1
A PLAY SCRIPT
W,W,W,W,W?
How does the writer USE talk?
What Literary, linguistic or rhetorical features did you notice?

Text 2 - Sense and Sensibility
WWWWW?
Text 3 - Sister Maude - Rossetti
What is this poem about?
What did you say about TALK with this text?
What further links can you now see between the three texts?
CONTEXT, PURPOSE AND AUDIENCE?
NARRATIVE?
ATTITUDES AND VALUES
WRITE NOTES AS IF ANSWERING ON EACH TEXT FOR THE EXAM
ie - narrative, context, purpose, audience, and attitudes and values.
Narrative?
Context, purpose and audience?
Attitudes and values?
SO, WE HAVE NOTES FOR THE LITERARY SIDE OF AN ESSAY.
YOU KNOW WHAT'S COMING DON'T YOU?
YOU NOW NEED TO WRITE THE OPENING PARAGRAPH TO THE ESSAY. YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR LITERARY TEXT.
5 MINS FOR THE INTRO THEN WE'LL DO A QUICK BAND CHECK.
Can you name 4 gender theorists and outline their views?
Take a look at the extract copied for you
from The Apprentice.

What is there to say about gender and power in this transcript?

Which theorists might we consider applying?
THE UNSEEN
GENDER?
GENDER?
What might you expect to see from a transcript?
Now consider The Crucible - what is there to say in terms of GENDER with this text?
