    What was both of the questions for the AQA conflict cluster again? One was about The right word and the other was poppies ?
    The right word one was;
    Compare how the poem the right word and a poem of your choice present how causes of conflict cause different attitudes to people.
    It was something along the lines of that.

    I'm sure you did well! My points were quite similar to yours, how the grief has become a cycle and that they cannot be free from it! (shown in Yellow Palm by "the fruit fell in his arms" showing a possible inheritance of conflict and the grief that comes with it, and in Poppies with the "dove" where her son possibly wants to stop beig a burden on her, but she cannot escape the grief as she reminisces!) I hope my writing makes sense to the examiner because I was sort of chucking down all of my thoughts as I had to rush a bit near the end. But overall, an alright exam I'd say!
    Yeah it was okay, I guess, but my poetry is usually a hit or miss. Once I got a 13, the other time I got a 32. It's ridiculous and I'm really tentative about this. But yeah, what can ya do, right? Good luck. x

    I am pretty sure it said "nuzzle" because most people said that is what they analysed, or I'm going crazy!

    When I saw To His Coy Mistress I didn't even bother reading the other question. Found out afterwards it was on Brothers
    Anyone else do the Relationships cluster, and if so how did you find it?
    My friends who did Character and Voice said they loved 'Medusa', so I'm glad that went well for you guys.
    Thought the unseen was quite nice too.
    Loved that paper.

    This is a summary of what I wrote in the unseen. Is this ok?!

    1) Repetition- 'sharp and sharpness' + other examples to suggest how the weapons yearn war.
    2) Tension- the men don't want to fight but the weapons are 'hungry for blood
    3) Personification- there were a couple of examples- these show the weapons desire for war/ the effect they have.
    4) Simile
    5) 'cold steel' description= the weapons were heartless and emotionless about war
    6) View of God- he didn't grow talons so this showed he didn't want there to be fighting
    7) View of people due to God- the benevolence of God caused the people to think against the war and the weapons. This meant they would be scarred by war.
    8) Imagery- the line about the bullet shooting through the heart.

    In the character and voice, I compared the change in The Ruined Maid to Brendon Gallacher.

    I did that as well. I mentioned loss of sanity and innocence. for devices i mentioned caesura, semantic field, metaphors and similies.
    Did you write about the 'bayonet blade' and how it was almost thirsty for blood. Also wrote about the simile 'like a madman's flash' which had connotations of brutal murder and linked to death. Finally, I wrote about the rhythmic scheme which seemed soft and gentle and how it almost juxtaposed against the violent and graphic imagery described by Owen in the poem!
