Hi,
Just wondering, which poems compare well with each other for the English Literature 'Power and Conflict' cluster? I've seen Mr Bruff's video, but I feel like some of them just DO NOT work well together.

What are y'all comparing with each other?

This format would be appreciated

It's all well and good to try to match up the poems beforehand, but honestly it depends on the question that's asked.

Say, for example, somebody wants to compare "Remains" and "Bayonet Charge" together because they both have the conflict of war as their central theme, but the question asks them to compare "the effects of war on people" with "Remains and one other poem", it'll be much harder to compare the two. Equally if you're asked to compare the power of nature, etc. That's why personally I don't think it's the best idea to try to match up each poem to another specific one.

Though there are some poems that link very well to each other, and some poems that generally link nicely with most of the other poems in the cluster (like Exposure, which focuses nicely on both the power of nature and human conflict), which poems to compare completely depends on what comes up in exam day.
