Gcse 9-1 aqa poetry - power & conflictWatch this thread
Nature (Storm on the Island + Extract from the Prelude + Exposure)
Pride/Glory (Ozymandias + My Last DUchess + Charge of the Light Brigade + London)
Inner Conflict (Poppies + Kamikaze + War Photographer)
Past/Identity (Emigree + Checking out me History + Tissue)
I know I'm missing out 2 poems but I can't find a dedicated theme for them. Please help put them in a place. Also I'm trying to find two poems easy to compare with each other in each theme For Example two poems in Nature to compare with each other and two in Pride/Glory to compare with each other.
Please help me.
I'm not sure if this helps or not but instead of just nature, our school has been studying it as the power of nature. This means that you can put Exposure, Storm on The Island, Ozymandias (nature destroyed what Ozymandias had built as 'nothing beside remains'), and The Prelude all in one c: I've found that Ozymandias compares to just about anything from here quite well because there are lot of differences in structure, language and tone, but the themes are quite similar. For past/identity I guess you could also add Remains, as the narrator is worrying about his past and what he has done - it also fits into Inner Conflict in this respect as he is having nightmares/abusing substances because of his guilty conscience.
I'm not sure what other poems you're missing but again, I hope this helps c:
Have a nice day!
I'm so confused bc some of our poems are the same some aren't. I'm also doing Ozymandias and London but then I'm also doing poems such as Dulce Decorum Est, Valentine, Manhunt, Cozy Apolgia
2) Are you doing the power and conflict cluster?
