The document below gives an overview of each of the anthology poems, including:
- Thematic links
- The purpose of each poem
- A ‘clever’ comment on context, genre or structure
- Four key quotations and techniques
Remember though, these are just my interpretations of the poems. The very best students will bring in their own perspective and viewpoints. There might be other quotations you personally feel are essential in developing an understanding of the poem. That is the beauty of literature!
For the quotations, I’ve named the main technique in each quote. What else can you find to analyse in each quotations?
