I was wondering is there a fixed template you can use when commenting on the theme or character is the poem.As a question on theme or characters always comes up in the unseen poetry questions. Thanks.
Rinne mé staidéar ar an dán ______ ( poem title) le __________ (poet name)
Is léir go mbaineann _____ (theme) leis an dán seo.
Is léir gur duine ______ (characteristic) é/í (he/she)_________ (character name)
And then go on to explain your point :)
To answer it you can say: Baineann an dan/sceal le ...........
some themes might be: duine og, sean duine, an dulra, use the themes you know from studied poetry and pros
For characters you can say: Is leir gur duine.......
some types of people include: bronach, cliste, foighneach, cairduil etc. just if you say someone is nice quote from the poem something that proves what you say is right.
