Write a five-paragraph essay in which you discuss the extent to which Phoebe is a flat character an idealised symbol of childhood innocence or a round character. You should select and discuss three relevant interactions and/or descriptions in the novel, and then show how each encounter or description supports your argument. Remember: ? Your essay should take the form of a close reading (see IELS 96-98 for further details). This means that you must integrate and discuss significant words and phrases from the novel to support your analysis. All these quotes should be connected to the central issue of Phoebes characterisation. ? Quotes need to be integrated into grammatically correct sentences, and that even two or three words can be a quote. Always discuss your quote and show why it is relevant to the argument you are making. ? In addition to characterisation, a consideration of narrative point of view and setting will enrich your analysis.
