    Okay so The Falling Leaves, Flag, and The Right Word have never come up, but that's not to say it will be one of these... Bayonet Charge has been done twice and so has Mametz Wood so it is unlikely to be one of these two.
    How are you revising???
    Hi,

    My teacher has told us that those 3 poems are Foundation tier only and definitely wont come up if you are doing Higher??? I haven't been taught these at all so if these come up tomorrow, Im screwed :eek:

    What would your points be?
    Coy mistress - narrator is scared of death - 'deserts of vast eternity' - shows that we are insignificant like grains of sand when we die, and death is eternal. Also he uses death to persuade his mistress to be more adventurous - ' The graves a fine and private place, but none do there, i think, embrace' 'Worms will take your virginity'

    Harmonium - The old organ reminds narrator of his father - he is about to die The whole second stanza can be seen as a metaphor for a coffin. There's a video on Mr Bruff's channel that explains this really nicely:

    Ah thanks! Can you help me with how to structure an answer please? I understand the unseen but don't get how to structure the comparison.

    Thanks
    Here's what I do and I used this to get an A*~ in the mocks: The opening paragraph I just give an intro about the form of both poems, so for example 'The ruined maid is written in anapestic trimeter' this enable you to get the marks early on, and even if you don't talk about all the structural elements, you still get credit!
    For the second paragraph, I would pick one of the structural elements and talk about how they help to carry the given theme in the poem. Whilst doing this, I in cooperate linguistic devices used such as syntax etc.
    I would do this technique until i cover the main points and remember to use the vital skills such as imagery, poetic devices etc.

    I would then repeat this process with the other poem, and slot the paragraphs in comparison to the given poem. So for example if my first paragraph is talking about The fall of women in The Ruined maid, My next paragraph would be comparing the devices used by the poet in the poem I choose to represent the same issue.
    If i have time I may conclude, but it's not necessary and if you are aiming for the A* try and add some Intertextual allusions!
    Good luck and hope that helps!

    In sister maude, does he beloved really die? I get the feeling from it that her father is the only one that dies, especially in the poem when she says 'spared his soul'? Not sure whether to go into the exam with this interpretation of it?

    You get marks for showing alternative interpretations (thats what "exploratory" means in the mark scheme) so use both arguments in your answer. I agree with you too, especially because the poem strongly implies that the father is now in heaven with "my father may sleep in paradise" and "If my dear and I" which suggests that the lover is still alive.What poem would you compare it to?
