Hmm. No (sorry!). The 1000 posts bit should be easy (I'm nearly there too, Overlord here I come!), but being on this forum will suck your time away. I hope and beg you prove me wrong!

I don't know wheather I should do Jabberwocky...My teacher said it was a difficult choice and I should try and choose something else...so maybe I'll do To Virgins To Make Much Of Time By Robert Herrick instead saying about how they should waste their time in school because they will regret it later.

GOAL MET!!!

Jabberwocky essay which I decided to change to To virgins....

Proof

Discuss a poem in the Anthology Saying Why You Would Use It With Young People Aged 14 or 15.

The poem I have decided to discuss is To Virgins, To Make Much Of Time by Robert Herrick (1591-1674), a poet who died having never married.

The message in this poem is trying using negative reinforcement to encourage young people to seize the day before its too late. Although, the title has the sexual connotation ‘virgins’ and the poem contains other such as ‘rosebuds’ and ‘coy’, the poem is not just about getting the young to have sex before their grow too old. In the C16, a virgin was also a person who has never experienced something before. Herrick is showing that as you get older, you will regret not experiencing certain things or making the use opportunities you get. This would apply to pupils in years 10 and 11 as they would be studying for their GCSEs and some pupils may be wasting their chance of a decent education and future.

The poem is quite negative sounding. Herrick uses comparatives such as ‘sooner’, ‘nearer’ and ‘worse’ to compare the joy of youth with grimness of old. The poet, who may be regretting his own life, seems to be pasting on his experiences in this poem to aid his persuasion for example he says ‘go marry’ which is something he never did. Also, people in Herrick time were expected to be virgins until they marry.
