    I SERIOUSLY need some help please!
    How do I structure my poetry answer (on Thursday)? I know it's meant to be a comparison essay, but what do I compare?
    Should it be like this:
    Paragraph 1&2: comparing the structure of the 2 poems
    Paragraphs 3&4: comparing language in the 2 poems
    Paragraphs 5&6: comparing language/devices in the 2 poems

    Or is it ok to compare the themes and attitudes in the 2 poems, like this:
    Both poems focus on the futility of war. In poem 1 this is evident through the use of metaphors.... Examples, blah blah blah... On the other hand, poem 2 uses rhetorical questions to challenge the need for war... Examples, blah blah blah... Therefore both poems explore the futility of conflict, only through different techniques.

    OR is either structure ok, as long as the points I make are good?

    If the AIC question is, as many are predicting, on Eric and it was something like "How do you respond to Eric? How does Priestley make you respond as you do by the way he writes?"

    What would the main point of focus be:

    - His problems - alcohol/aggression(acted in a threatening manner to Eva and his mother when he found out about her rejecting Eva at her charity)/stealing

    - Poor relationship with parents - he accuses Mr Birling of not being "the kind of father a chap could go to when he's in trouble" and his distant relationship is shown by the fact that his parents did not know about his quite obvious alcohol problem.

    - Responsibility - Eric is deeply affected by the news of Eva Smith, and like Sheila shows remorse and signs that he will change as a person for the better.

    Can anyone think of any more key talking points about Eric to add? It will be a very useful exercise as much of the signs are pointing to a question based of Eric. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers.

    ''Discuss Steinbeck’s descriptions of the natural world. What role does nature play in the novella’s symbolism?''

    I have mentioned,
    - that the natural world acts as a representation of the duality of relationships: Lennie loves animals, but kills them. Candy loves his dog, but can’t stand up for it; and even Crooks tends to the horses that maimed him.
    - The rabbits that sit like “gray, sculptured stones” hurry for cover at the sound of footsteps, hinting at the predatory world that will finally destroy Lennie and George’s dream.
    - The dead mouse in Lennie’s pocket serves as a potent symbol of the end that awaits weak, unsuspecting creatures.
    - Vivid colours - peaceful, heavenly, idyllic setting - like Garden of Eden.. description of the river place at the beginning of the book.
    - end of book, the same place described as ‘a pleasant shade had fallen’ ‘the sun had left the valley’ ‘Rosy in the sun’ ‘The mountains seemed to blaze with increased brightness’ contrasting the initial description of the place. Scene is symbolic and portrays the predatory nature of evil in men and animals.


    What else can i mention?

    Since Gerald and inspector goole has came up already, if they really do ask a question about them would they be comparing them to another character? Or do you guys reckon they won't come up at all?
