    How would I compare THCM with Hour?
    Similarities:
    -Both talk about love in relation to time, and time's effects
    -Both personify time
    -Both discuss positive relationships of love
    -Both follow a regular rhyme scheme

    Differences:
    -Ideas about love- Hour is romantic whereas THCM is used to persuade an unwilling partner
    -Language- THCM uses a syllogistic argument, Hour uses modern imagery
    -THCM focuses on giving into time, Hour tries to conquer it

    Just had a question where it said 'how does the poet use language to.....' does this mean that if I talk about the structure I won't get any marks?

    The blackbird of glanmore because both writers have similar motives for writing their poems, depression. Yeats the person he loved didn't love him back and Heaney his brother died. Do you think either poem will come up because the blackbird poem came up last year

    I haven't seen any mention of the Place poems come up, which I'm doing.
    Does anybody have any predictions as to what might come up out of the 15 of them?
    Apparently A Vision hasn't come up in ages

    Are they hinting that they will come up or are they using reverse psychology so that we end up revising for them and then they don't even come up :?
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding is that initially AQA had selected some poems that would only feature on the foundation tier paper, but this year those poems may also come up on the higher tier paper.

    This makes much more sense to me, because whilst it remains obvious that the poems that have not yet featured in any exam papers are much more likely to come up, AQA have not previously said that they do not repeat poems, therefore there would be no need for them to highlight that all of the poems have an equal chance of appearing in the exam paper.

    I thought that they wouldn't but someone else on the thread said it was quite likely to come up because it hasn't come up in a while and that it is a good poem

    Flag goes well with At The Border, both emphasising the pointlessness of nationalism. next to of course god america i and Charge of the Light Brigade also go well with patriotism and jingoism even if it is in a negative way
