The Sign of Four – Revising Characters

You should be well aware by now that understanding characters is crucial for your exam success.

You might be asked a question about a character, a theme, or a combination of the two. Remember though, a question about a character will include lots of ideas about themes. For example, if you are asked about Watson, you will be discussing his friendship with Holmes, his significance to the theme of love, and his significance to ideas of ’emotion vs. rationality’.

Use these sheets to help collect all your ideas about characters onto one helpful sheet of A4. For key quotations, see the resources attached to this postIf you want a practice with specific past paper questions, click here.
