Today you will be familiarising yourself with the three main types of secondary reading you will use for your NEA . This will support your A05 – alternative interpretations. The three types are: books / magazines / online. You will also learn about Harvard referencing.
Here is a useful guide to Harvard referencing. Read it and then complete the tasks below:
Task 1 – in text referencing (sources with one author)
Imagine, you have read an interesting article on The Great Gatsby and Wuthering Heights entitled “Asking Questions and telling Tales” .
It was written in 2010 and authored by Sue Hemming. It was published in Oxford by Philip Allan.
You have written in your notes the critical quote “Nick can swallow Gatsby’s large crimes because they are inspired by romantic hope.”
Write a sentence embedding the quote and the correct referencing to answer the question ‘ Is Nick a reliable and neutral narrator?’
Task 2 – Bibliography: sources with one author
Every source you read, even if you don’t refer to it in your NEA, must be included in the bibliography at the end of your essay. This is how you do it:
Author, Initials., Year. Title of book. Edition. (only include this if not the first edition) Place of publication (this must be a town or city, not a country): Publisher.
Write the bibliography entry for the source in Task 1.
