I have an English prelim on Tuesday for higher english and our teacher has not taught us much about the poem. She has told us one of the questions will be on poetic techniques from this sonnet by John Donne. Anyone able to suggest any poetic techniques that are within this poem with an analysis? Thanks in advance

I can't really help with your question, as never studied that poem, but just wanted to say hope it goes well tomorrow Try not to worry/panic about that section too much and perhaps when you're doing the paper tomorrow do the sections you're more confident with first. If the teacher hasn't really covered it much, that will likely reflect in the marks of the whole class, so it will probably let them know they need to spend more time on it after the prelim.

I don’t know about this poem but some of techniques you might look out for are: Metaphor, simile, extended metaphor, oxymoron, alliteration, synecdoche etc.

Thank you so much, I spoke about some of these but also spoke about others which im not sure if they are poetic techniques or if I have just made them up. One was plosive opening.

Thank you so much. Everyone was on the same boat as myself as we all found the essays to be challenging. Hopefully the close reading and set text brings us all up.🤞🏾 Thank you
