Unseen poetry help needed
by kinchino123 Junior Cert Irish — 08/06/16 3

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. Or 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.
