    • Even-numbered Exam question 14. ‘The women in Tennyson’s poems are presented as victims of a male world.’ How far do you agree?Plan:Set up the debate in the first paragraph – are they only presented as victims? What does itmean to be a victim? What does the term suggest? Could they be viewed differently?Choose one of the poems and explore how the female character and her story arepresented. What images do we get of her? How could she be interpreted by differentreaders? How might we respond to her character? Why is Tennyson presenting hercharacter like this – consider the ways that women were treated and how they were viewedboth at the time (contemporary) and now (modern context).Consider a second character.Consider a third character – maybe one who is completely different.Conclude by returning to the question and answering it clearly and evaluatively. What isyour view, and what are your reasons for holding it?
