    9. Question stems • “Discuss the view…” • “Explore the ways in which…” • “Consider the view that…” • “To what extent…” • “How far do you agree that…”

    10. Example questions (section A) • Huckleberry Finn – Mark Twain • Childhood has been depicted by some pastoral writers as a lost Golden Age and a time of closeness to nature. • Does Huckleberry Finn show Twain to be one of those writers?

    11. Example Questions (section A) • Brideshead Revisited – Evelyn Waugh • Waugh said that the novel was written ‘in a bleak period’ and was consequently filled ‘with a kind of gluttony… for the splendours of the recent past.’ • How does Waugh use the idea of a Golden Age?

    12. Example Questions (section B) • Discuss the uses made of urban and rural oppositions in texts you have studied. • To what extent is a pastoral treatment of the past inevitably prettified and nostalgic? • Compare depictions of rural life in at least two texts of your choice.
