In your non-fiction booklets, please find the first article on page 2 ‘An Inspector Calls is poisonous, revisionist, propaganda’.
Read the article carefully. Make sure that you look up any words that you do not understand.
The answer the question at the bottom: What is the writer’s perspective (opinion, point of view) of the play and the adaptation.
Write your answer using 4xSQUAD paragraphs.
Statement – a point that answers the question. E.g. James Delingpole makes it clear from the outset of the article that he considers the play to be overated and left wing propaganda.
Quotation – Embed a quotation into a sentence that backs up your statement. E.g He argues that the play is a ‘load of manipulative, hysterical tosh’.
Analyse – Analyse the quotation for the writer’s methods. E.g language devices or words that you can zoom in on. E.g. The personification of the play as manipulative is interesting as it almost seems to become Priestley’s mouthpiece. Also the colloquial noun ‘tosh’ ridicules the play as a piece rubbish.
Development – explain how this shows the perspective. Could you link this to another point. E.g. Through this list of faults, the writer is clearly positioning himself as someone unaffected by the message of the play and who finds it instead something to ridicule.
Please see me in plenty of time if you do not understand.
