Nicole7631 — 08/06/16
well i mentioned the poet himself a couple of times ( i wrote about seamus heaneys poem digging)
123HOLOPER456 — 08/06/16
Im pretty sure if u talked about a poem of the poet it was right cus it said to support your answer with reference to the poets work
Benmartin — 08/06/16
you'll do fine :)
Nicole7631 — 08/06/16

If I said in the first like "the poem I have studied is 'midterm break' by seamus heaney" and talked about midterm will I get the marks?
is it june 23rd yet — 08/06/16
shit i wrote about how base details affected me

i wrote about seamus heaneys poems mid term break, early purges and talked about the effects it had on me and how i felt in the different parts of the poem??

Is this higher or ordinary ???
Nicole7631 — 08/06/16
This is higher level paper two
EH458 — 08/06/16
So many people did this! Oh my god ���� but yeah 15/30 seems to be the max as you only referred to one poem when they were probably looking for upwards of 2 and a discussion about the poets style of writing etc
EH458 — 08/06/16
But I could be very wrong, they may bend the marking scheme a little bit to allow for extra points, I'd say you'll be fine!
carolinaaplasencia — 09/06/16
but they only said discuss the 'work' not works and how a certain work of your chosen poem made you feel right??????????????/
Salman — 09/06/16
EXACTLY, ppl, it says refer to his/her poetry, not the poem. I'm rlly hope u guys are wrong

i did the other question, on a poem suitable for a certain occasion (dulce et decorum est=historical anniversary) and wrote pretty much the same thing for both parts, as i didn't know what to say... i'm sure they'll be lenient as so many people have made the mistake.
Molly121 — 09/06/16
I think it's right if you talk abou the poem and how the poet uses to poem to convey messages that give you different perspectives on ideas. So I wrote about a poem called Revenge and how the poet gives readers new perspectives on the idea of revenge. I dont think you need to do more then one of the poets poem because it does say work not works. i'd say everything will be fine
carolinaaplasencia — 09/06/16
yeah ur right Salman just realized it said refer to her poetry probably the poets style of writing using a work of his as an example so I think it works both ways we can discuss the poet mainly if we want or g into further details about the poets poetry2. get me this is rlly confusing I know

I did dulce et decorum est and David how I realised the futility of war by studying it but I inly referred to the one poem what does anyone think ...
Nicole7631 — 12/06/16

adamob544 — 12/06/16
