    For all who have already taken or are going to take their english GCSE, is it possible for us to any notes/qoutes from the different cultures poetry notes which would be helpful for any future english language student?

    I am chossing to cover one poem per 1/2 days: the poem of today is Limbo.

    Here is a rough outline for the notes:
    • Main Message and background of the poem
    • Structure
    • Lanuage
    • Presonal Response


    Limbo

    And limbo stick is the silence in front of me
    limbo

    limbo
    limbo like me
    limbo
    limbo like me


    long dark night is the silence in front of me
    limbo
    limbo like me

    stick hit sound
    and the ship like it ready

    stick hit sound
    and the dark still steady

    limbo
    limbo like me


    long dark deck and the water surrounding me
    long dark deck and the silence is over me

    limbo
    limbo like me


    stick is the whip
    and the dark deck is slavery

    stick is the whip
    and the dark deck is slavery

    limbo
    limbo like me


    drum stick knock
    and the darkness is over me

    knees spread wide
    and the water is hiding

    limbo
    limbo like me


    knees spread wide
    and the dark ground is under me


    down
    down
    down
    and the drummer is calling me

    limbo
    limbo like me


    sun coming up
    and the drummers are praising me

    out of the dark
    and the dumb god are raising me

    up
    up
    up

    and the music is saving me

    hot
    slow
    step

    on the burning ground.

    I'm not entirely sure what you are asking. For notes, see here:

    I also recommended the Heinemann books published for this specification. They have been endorsed by AQA.
