Note the sub-question in the literary essay
Mr. Phan The Hoai noted the sub-commands that are easy to encounter in literary discussion questions in important works in the Literature program.
Since 2015, the literary essay sentence in the high school graduation exam in Literature has often added a sub-command next to the main command. For example, in 2021, the sub-command in the title is: “Commenting the feminine beauty in Xuan Quynh’s poetry” (1st time); “Comments on romantic inspiration of Quang Dung in the poem” (2nd time).
The sub-command of literary thesis for the 2022 reference exam requires “commenting on the humanitarian thought of writer Kim Lan through excerpts”.
