    Exile would be good. Awesome in fact. ANything would be better than portraits.
    Literature would be fun.

    Or maybe a present/past sort of thing - transition of time. Hardy's The Self-Unseeing would be great for that. ^_^

    Armitage did a Titanic? Ooh.
    Edit: Oh, 9/11.

    My guesses would be:
    1) Ferrets
    2) Blind people
    3) Nature and trees and stuff
    4) Food
    and of course
    5) The weather.

    9/11 would be too restrictive, i think. I mean, in terms of time. I would've thought they'd like just being able to pick willy nilly from centuries. but what do I know.

    Guilt! Memory!

    I was talking about Armitage's poem being about 9/11.

    What I could really do with now is a sample paper that I didn't look at 3 months ago.

    My bad. Try talking about different sample texts on the paper?

    I hope the 'link' next week isn't something really obscure that makes me (us) approach the texts in a different way (as in under a different theme) altogether...

    Do you A-Levellites ever do commentaries on unseen texts as part of your course?

    hey everyone i just joined this forum today- i have a question
    when the ELAT asks to compare and contrast- are you guys going to look at the way the author writes his poem? like the style of the words and the syntax- or are u going to compare themes and ideas that the poems talk about, like the main message

    Both. You look at the themes by way of style, structure etc. (It's not necessarily as simple as that, but in a general sense, that's what you're going for.) Looking at "the way the author writes his poem" is pretty important.

    You look remarkably like Anne Hathaway.

    What I mean is: I hope that the link that is given at the start is something that is workable. Something that is good to write about, and isn't so difficult that it makes me try and find new themes in the texts.
