I'm hoping for Medusa or River God, and my Engliah teacher thinks it will either be My Last Duchess, Medusa, or Casehistory. Im absolutely screwed if it's Singh Song or Horse Whisperer though

for my mock I wrote a page and a half and got an A* but my teacher said if you write a lot about a little they will assume you can do that about everything

In the exam, if the question specifically says something like "How does the author use language to show ...." would commenting on the poetic techniques be useless? Do we only need to focus on the language used e.g. certain words?

I have read that they don't give any marks based on your understanding of poetic devices, but I think if you picked out a word you may as well state a device used, if you can think of one, in order to say how they used that word to show meaning or an idea.

'' and her looks went everywhere.'' - you can say that her eyes are everywhere (flirtatiousness) or is she just shy and embarrassed by attention.

Dramatic monologue- Victorian women were voiceless
one way conversation allows us to identify the speaker

painting curtain- able to eventually feel he is controlling her
smiles only for him

I guess
The control of the rhyme scheme shows the tight control the Duke wants of the Duchess
