I'm an A-level English Lit student trying to complete my coursework for A2. For one piece I have chosen to write about metaphor use and symbolism in Simon Armitage's Matchstick poem beginning 'Mother any distance, greater than a single span...'
I got my first draft back today and my teacher, who isn't always the most helpful, told me that I need to put more AO4 into the essay. For those who are not familiar with the AQA assement objectives, I basically need to put the poem more in context, Eg to hit AO4 for an essay on Pride and prejudice, you would need to say something about the fact that it's set in the Regency era... Anyway, you get the idea! I'm just finding it really hard to find any stronger points on AO4 except the obvivous, that it's a poem about a mother and son, perhaps even Armitage himself!
So I'd be really greatful to hear any suggestions you lovely people have please! thanks in advance for your help!
Please can anyone help? watch
