in any essay question related to the charge of the light brigade, will writing about the similar verse from the lords prayer increase my mark??

I guess you could say, ‘this is a biblical reference too ...’ and then the effect. I wouldn’t go into too much detail but just that is fine.

Last year's poem was Bayonet Charge and the question was on how the effects of war are presented. So Charge of the Light Brigade probably saw a lot of use last year. It could be a fairly different question this year, if I were in your position I'd be focusing on the less war-focused poems.

yeah this is probably correct, I used Charge of the Light Brigade to compare to Bayonet Charge last year and many of my friends did as well so it's likely it'll be a 'Power' focused question instead of a 'Conflict' focused question like it was last year - something like Prelude or Ozymandias would be likely.

Disclaimer: still revise all of them but these are the ones I would say are 'Power' poems. I'm a little rusty as I did this a year ago, but these are the ones I can remember being most about 'Power' and my basic reasoning.

Ozymandias (power/effects of time and how power is finite)
London (power of authority and the misuse of it by the ruling class/lack of power for the working class)
Prelude (power of nature compared to humans)
My Last Duchess (power of a man over a woman)
Tissue (hated this one coz I never really got it, but I'd say its more power than conflict)
Checking Out Me History (power of colonialism over his culture and now his power of reclaiming his heritage)
