    I know right! I concentrated to much on prose I suck at comparisons, it takes me ages to choose a poem. To be honest I don't have any ideas, but out of all the predicted poems on this thread, I hope The River God comes up

    I think it gave the quote "Ralph wept for the end of innocence", and asked how you responded to the end of the novel and what was Golding trying to portray? (Sorry that that's not the exact wording). I did this question but pretty much no one else from my school did, and I'm worried about what I wrote - I just picked out innocence, and then talked about innocence in the novel:/ what dd you write?
    Ahhh thats so good thank you! I swear i saw it say something about a naval officer?
    i suppose its not a bad thing not many people did this question!
    that sounds good, i wrote:

    How the rescue by the naval officer was ironic- the pure descriptions of him and his uniform contrast the boys, and its ironic as he is fighting in just as a brutal war. Also about how he commented on it as "fun and games" when it really wasnt

    I said about the fire- how this was also ironic. Initially fire is key for 'rescue' as ralph says- however they light the fire in intention to kill ralph, but end up getting rescued after all

    I then said how he wept for innoocence, he reflects on his actions and how he contains innate evil (goldings message). I said how he can be viewed to be responsible for the savagery on island - he makes Piggy a target early on by telling the boys his nicknames

    Hope this helps x

    I don't think the question specifically said the naval officer, but it asked about the end of the novel, so writing about the naval officer was fine yeah, I'm going the fact that not many people did it will be to my advantage as well - it's easier for your answer to seem original!
    That sounds really good what you have written, mine was really different to that but hopefully still alright - I think the question was quite open and could have been taken in a number of different ways.

    FOR ALL THOSE DOING THE RELATIONSHIPS CLUSTER:

    The four poems that haven't yet come up are Sonnet 116, Ghazal, Born Yesterday and Coy Mistress. I believe the most likely ones to come up are going to be Sonnet 116 and Born Yesterday. When comparing the poetry you need to cross reference between the two poems. I would recommend using the "peals" technique

    P: Point
    E: Evidence
    A: Analyse
    L: Link to SMILE
    S: switch

    So basically every other paragraph you alternate poems. Do 3 similarities and 3 differences for the 2 poems and use PEALS on each paragraph to answer. So in a paragraph you would state a point (eg: Sonnet 116 uses the theme of time to express love blah blah) use evidence by stating a short quote, analyse it(state what effect it has on the reader and basically how it makes the poetry work) Link to either structure, meaning etc (so "this is further supported by the structure of the poem") and switch by going on to the next paragraph and writing about a similarity or difference (similarly Coy Mistress also utilizes the theme of time to express desire.) Do 5 minutes planning for section A and then 6 minutes on each paragraph.

    Links I would suggest would be Sonnet 116 and Hour, Coy Mistress and either Ghazak or In Paris With You, Born Yesterday and Nettles or Hour and Ghazal and Coy Mistress. I worked this out from a combination of my teacher, finding techniques on YouTube and doing some maths and common sense/looking at potential links myself haha. As far as unseen goes just read the poem twice and then analyse the structure, meaning, imagery, language and effect on the reader

    Good luck everyone!
