    Me! I compared lists for language, the unstructured nature of the two and how they're 1st person so personal effects blah blah

    So on the summary page, the unseen poetry was that the boy grew talons because he was not evil but I wrote that because it unassailable because God "did not" grow him talons, the negative diction conveyed that the boy thinks his powerful and God can't stop him. Will I lose marks if the actual answer was that God didnt not let him grow talons because he isn't fundamentally evil?
    No using lose marks its all about interpretation and developing ur point and guving supporting evidence. As long as u acknowledged the whole effector war being wrong and evil etc

    I personally didn't but a few people from my school did. All the poems link in some respects. You get the marks for explaining why so DW

    for the unseen I talk about how the soldier was described as 'boy' this is emotive language as it evokes empathy from the reader at the notion of children getting involved in war.

    For the last stanza I talk about how the words 'talons' and 'no claws' shows that god did not create people as evil beings but rather it is the influence of society which molded their ideology of murder. I talked so much **** in the exam but I think I got an A in poetry

    For the unseen I spent ages trying to work out what to write but eventually got there in the end 😂 I put something like: assonance of 'steel' and 'keen' to describe the weapons, sounds almost like the weapons are malicious and scheming. Contrasted to innocence of boy. Juxtaposition of colours ('blood' = red and 'Blue') - weapons are cold, not like boy who is full of life and energy (I had no idea what I was saying 😂). Personification of weapons - almost like they can hurt the boy and hold power over him. Treat the boy like one of their 'prey' and that they can feast on him or whatever (can't remember quote lol) - ironic, usually only the person being wounded by a weapon is damaged, but this portrays that by firing a gun you will be damaged too, not physically but mentally. Last quatrain has a different tone to the others before it - the boy will not be pictured as evil or as a devil with 'horns' emerging from his head (biblical imagery). This conveys the message that if you kill one of the enemy in a war, you are praised for it, rather than being punished. Something like that. I have no idea if it is right tho and you can probably make loads of different interpretations

    Its alright as long as you talked about structure form and language you'll do fine! I liked the unseen question but I only did it in the last 17 mins - I am aiming for 14/5
    hey, do you know if it's necessary to speak about all three (structure form and language) to get the top marks?? I don't think I talked about form in mine:/
