    Heya,

    I'm answering a question from a past paper and I'm not sure what poem I should use for this question:

    Compare the ways people are presented in ‘Vultures’ with the ways people are
    presented in one other poem.

    I've only learnt 'Nothing Changed' and 'Scangers in a Truck' so I need to use one of these I guess. Which one would you choose and what's the theme that links the two poems?

    Thanks everyone (:

    I did this question as a practise question in year 11 and I LOVED 'Vultures'. I compared it with "Two Scavengers", I think I've still got it.

    Ok found it.
    "...This imbalance of character is the main theme in both poems, as they each present a contrast which influences the reader to challenge the nature of the human race."
    That's basically what I based the essay on. Mentioned the use of extended metaphors, juxtaposition of ideas, society/reversal of class, description in general and the nature of love.

    Thank you (: And I agree, they're two of my favourite poems too. x

    People in vultures; Can people who really commit such atrocities still have love from their family/friends? Can love and evil co-exist within people?

    Two Scavs; Materialism, snobbery. Compared with blue labour workers, who make up the backbone of society. The injustice is, the latter are looked down upon when they do more for society than people who work in offices etc.
