    Well, just done the exam and I have to say it was actually really easy. I did the "Manhunt" question for relationships (not sure who on Earth would have done the other.) The unseen was also easy!
    Agreed, that was a lot better than I thought it would go.

    Honestly I feel very confident, for the unseen I talked about the title being Symptom? I added it connotes sickness when really the poet is trying to suggest the love for her child is infectious.

    I think there's no right or wrong answer to be honest, i interpreted as the subject was her lover and she was feeling those symptoms because the subject loved someone else and not her. So unrequited love.

    I wrote about the poet trying to convince herself that life is better now and how the regular verse length contrasted her haphazard use of punctuation which showed her mixed feelings about being in love

    Anyone else do the My Last Duchess question? I compared it to Ozymandias.

    For the unseen poem does this sound okay??
    I wrote that: (summary)
    1. Repetition of the start and end of the stanza emphasises it. The lexis 'although' was unusual as it is a comnective so we feel that the poet will criticise something which she goes ahead to do. The lexis 'better' connotes that the life of Sophie Hannah has improved since being in love. She has effectively not stated who she is in love for so a reader can interpret this themselves to be a friend, family, boyfriend, child etc...
    2. The phrase 'silly smile' is the only positive word in the stanzas so emphasis is brought to this as well as the alliteration used. A person smiles when they are happy so it comveys good emotions ....
    3. The final phrase we are left with is that life is better tan before. This conveys that despite all of the negatives, it doesnt matter as it is better to be in love that out of it

    Yep I said it she did it to emphasis that although love comes with make difficulties it still makes life better and another interpretation is that she's struggling to believe that love makes life better and she's trying to convince herself
