    Thought I should make an Aqa poetry - CONFLICT questions thread

    What do you think might come up?

    Hope this helps.

    Who knows we might all get A*s from sharing each others ideas!

    Well it is guaranteed that we won't be asked to compare Flag, The Falling Leaves and The Right Word (for higher tier) so that's all good! If anyone wants to check have a look here: http://store.aqa.org.uk/resourceZone...-TRB-U01TG.PDF
    It says which poems will only come up in the Foundation paper and which will only come up in the Higher paper

    Make a chart of poems going along the top and themes along the side then tick what poems contain what themes. You will find it easier to pick a poem in the exam then that actually links to the poem that they make you do

    my teacher told us that "Flag", "The Falling Leaves" and "The Right Word" are not going to be named poems in the questions, but you can use them as the comparison poem.

    what poems do you love/hate? funnily enough i really like "next to of course god america i" even though apparently it's the hardest lol, i also like "out of the blue", "mametz wood", "the falling leaves", "futility" and "flag" :)

    "poppies" doesn't quite seem to work for my liking :p but i'm alright with all the poems i guess :)

    Me too, I'm also doing character and voice.
    My teacher said it is important to realise how poets use structure to resemble development in characters in poems, like in Medusa, Horse Whisperer and The Clown Punk. Also in structure rhythms are used to show how the character feels inside and to others during poems, like Give and The Ruined Maid. Basically poetry is just picking out devices used by poets and analysing and comparing how they are used to represent themes or ideas in poems.

    What you can do for section B is introduce yourself to a new poem and spend 5 mins noting down what you find in terms of techniques used.

    Good luck everyone for the poetry exam

    Close to making the thread myself! I do relationships at it is the most easiest but the most BORING apart from the family relationships like sister maude, By the way does anyone want a mock of comparing sister maude to brothers? I can offer it to anyone but please also share your own knowledge and notes.
