    I did Yeats and Frankenstein, I was so happy with the questions that came up! The only problem is, I had so many ideas that I was rushing to scribble them all down and I think my essays ended up pretty badly written as a result.. oh well, at least its over with now! How did everyone else's go?

Questions looked hard at first but was lucky I had planned a similar question for 'The Second Coming' yesterday and I wrote an essay n Lord Henry as a manipulator and role in DG before so fingers crossed!! However like others my writing wasn't the best because I wated to get everything down

    Not many as long as you mentioned AO1/3/4 - I'm worried I didn't put sufficient context but I put quite a bit of critical analysis to balance :/ I think I did better on the poetry

    This was one of the only poems I didn't revise!

    I had to make up things

    I said that the blood dimmed tide line was about Maud Gonne getting involved in revolutionary politics and having blood on her hands because of the violence, etc.

    Talked of biblical language, Jesus came back to life (Second Coming) at Easter - reference to Easter Rising?

    Context of the poem - After war - cautionary tale to stop future wars.

    Repetition of turning and turning, and surely. Repetition starts both stanzas. Stanza 1 represents the descent into chaos, Stanza 2 is the chaos. Starting both stanzas the same shows it is the same world.

    Really worried - are these good points?

    Dont worry that sounds good dont forget poetry is interpreted differently by everyone - n u did mention ao2 if u put stanza pattern so even though u didn't put lots of language in u did put sum other ao2 stuff in
    AO1 is argument, critical terminology and fluency
    AO2 is language imagery and verse form
    AO4 is context

    AO3 is critical interpretation

    hope this helps

    What did you write for the second coming?
    Um my 3 points were:
    Changing world is eternal (gyres and stuff)
    Changing world is vexatious (indignant birds, sphinx, occult, golden dawn, loss of control (falconry in the middle ages))
    Changing world is foreboding (WW1 Revolution of St John Angel poured blood, Russian revolution)

    Linked to Leda- Transition in both poems revolutionary
    Linked to Cat and Moon (Moon taken a new phase, eternality)
    Linked to Easter- Was it needless death after all?

    Was very happy with my Second Coming Essay, Dorian Gray was ok as well but I only wrote 1 sentence for conclusion I ran out of time :/ Did the Henry Dorian relationship one, talked about Aestheticism, Homoeroticism, Influence

    I linked to Leda, but said how innocent Maud Gonne's involvement in revolutionary politics (ceremony of innocence / blood dimmed tide I said was a reference to Maud Gonne and revolutionary politics - blood on her) and how the swan changed Leda's world

    I also linked it to the fisherman: best lack conviction... Fisherman didn't soeak up against revolutionaries.

    Did you need to reference 3 poems

    Could you take a look at my points (prev page) and see what you think?

    Your point about Maud Gonne is good! (not sure bout the blood on her hands) but the idea is good about her gettin involved in politics...
    Yeahh it's good you linked to Easter rising, but small point, second coming in this case wasn't the return of christ, was about birth of anti-christ, cuz yeats says 'cradle' not 'manger' but yeah it's still really good context :P And yeah nice point about constant turning of gyres haha cuz that's basically context too..You'll do well don't worry!! xD
