Hey guys, I thought everyone could join together and help each other for revision purposes? Is anyone doing conflict here?

They're okay:/ I prefer them to the books!

Have you looked at 'The Right Word'? It's quite confusing and I can't get the grasp of it

How are you going about looking at these conflict poems? Are you just putting a name to a theme or remembering key quotes.

I've used GCSE bitesize to add extra annotations to my anthology (which helps me remember some key quotes and info). I've paired all the poems up in preparation for the exam
Tomorrow I will do a couple of exam questions and see if I can do them:/

Yup! I have a few notes on it from class,
to sum it up:
My view on it:
1) War is closer than you think
2) If you keep on viewing war as something not part of your life, or view conflict as something you can hide and run away from, it will haunt you in the end
3) You need to accept war and take responsibility for your actions and help others. otherwise the world will never be united and conflict will continue.

It can also show how people interpret people of war in different ways showing how there is no good or bad people within war, they are all fighting believing they are morally correct. If there is no good or bad people within war, it brings a sense of futility and pointlessness to war, and how peace can never be achieved if we don't try to understand one another.

Additionally, the child may symbolise how if we keep creating conflict, it will destroy the future generations and the future of the planet leaving our children and theirs to crumble and suffer due to our own mistakes. We need to bring peace and unite the world so the future generation don't have to suffer. The child also shows how any soldier could be your own child, and you would never harm or hurt your own child. Every soldier has a mother or father and is a child. You should help these soldiers and bring peace instead of killing a child who has a family like your own.

That is the basic emotions and themes of the poem I think Dx I'm not very good at describing stuff, so if your confused by some of my points, just say T-T Hope it helps!

By the way, is anyone else not learning quotes? I think it's kinda pointless because there will be too many..XD I don't know? Tomorrow i'm going to revising their history, use of language and also just coming up with ideas for some of the poems and what they show.
