    How do you answer Q1 (24 marks ) when it’s unseen poetry? It’s hard to write a lot since I don’t know much about it can I have ideas on what to write and how to be perceptive? Q2 (8 marks) is quite easy but the poem comparison question is difficult to get near full marks. Any help on how to get more than 18 marks on comparing poems from the anthology? (Power and conflict)

    When comparing anything use PEE comparison. So make a point they share and then say how one does it with evidence and how the other does it with evidence. Then say how they do something different and why it’s effective with evidence for each one.

    Any points that she raised that we can perhaps explain better?

    structure, tone, language (zoom in on single words and explore their effects. say what type of word they are, eg verb or adjective)
    Subject:
    What does the poem appear to be about? Is it obvious or ambiguous? Is it narrative in nature, telling a story; or is it more abstract and concerned with feelings and emotions? Is there a clear link between its subject and its title?

    Tone:
    Does the poem convey a feeling of celebration, sadness, rage, joy, regret, love, hate, irony, satire, pathos? Does the tone of the poem appear to give an insight into the poet's state of mind at the time the poem was written?

    Rhythm and Rhyme:
    Is there a clear rhythm to the poem? Is there a discernible rhyme scheme? Does it rhyme at all? If so, how and where? Are all the lines of roughly the same length? Are short lines intermixed with long lines? What effect does this have as the poem is being read? Does it help to emphasise the poem's meaning?

    Imagery:
    What visions and pictures fill your head when you read the poem? Are they beautiful, gentle, savage, awe inspiring, confused, picturesque, horrific...?

    Vocabulary (lexis):
    What words, phrases and register does the poet use to add impact and power to the poem? Can you identify the use of metaphor, simile, personification, or any other imaginative devices?

    Effects:
    What sound effects does the poet use and why? Scan the poem for the use of, for example, onomatopoeia, assonance, alliteration, cacophony...

    Sorry, was off the site for a bit.

    Evaluate is basically just using quotations from the subject text to backup your point.
