Finally, a conflict thread!

I will be so happy if Yellow Palm comes up.

Have you got any points of where to compare Belfast Confetti? I have nothing to say about it. It's also been predicted that Poppies may come up.

Structure-wise, I always use point, evidence, explain, effect on the reader, link back to the original point, alternative interpretation of a quote, link back to the original point.

The right word and the falling leaves won't come up as named poems as they're foundation only poems - although we can still compare them!

Having said that, I just found this document http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...IT-CHANGES.PDF which says they might! It also gives a list for the unseen poems.

Yup you're right. Hardly anyone knows though so i'm guessing a lot of people won't revise those poems

A few things for you...

FLAG
Personal pronoun “my friend” asking the audience to reconsider the meaning of flags

Repetition of “just a piece of cloth” – an insignificant image to show how patriotism is worthless.

Personification “blind your conscience”.

Pun on “guts”, it can give men courage and victory but it also leads to death because their bodies have been blown up or attacked.

RIGHT WORD

Juxtaposition with "outside" at the start of the poem and "in" at the end of the poem. This suggests the transformation from problem to solution/ political to personal.

No structure reflects a difficulty of finding an agreed point of view and society’s political disagreements.

I've looked at all the past papers and futility and falling leaves are the only two that didn't come up or been associated with another that has come up.
Also how do you structure your paragraphs. i know is 3 double petal but what do you talk about in those 3 (e.g tone etc.)?

:O Thank you! Very helpful!

Poppies vs Falling Leaves would be a nice comparison
I'm hoping for the Yellow Palm or 'Come on, Come back'

I love Come on, Come back!

But it's unlikely to be named because it came up in 2014.

Make sure to know key points about your favourite 1-3 poems. If you know enough good points you can adapt them to any question or poem that comes up, they are all related to each other in some way or they wouldnt be in the same section. Go through past papers and bullet point answers. You can also make comparison lists between your chosen poem and a poem that is likely to come up.

I love Mamatez wood, but it came up last year ( I think Belfast Confetti might come up though, which is an alright one.

For Belfast Confetti:

The work 'confetti' is ironic as it usually describes a celebration/ union however in this context it is describing war a desuction. Alternatively it can be seen as a symbol for debris from an explosion.

The extended metaphor of punctuation shows how conflict is interrupting his train pf of thought and life on a broader sense. Peace is disrupted by language.

'Hyphenated line' could link or divide.

Structure- no structure reflects chaotic atmosphere

Hope that helps
