  1. Poetry English language

    If I was called up for the army like they were in WW1 then I would feel confident and relieved because it would be easier to get in there. Plus I wouldn't need all the stress with the interviews and getting in. I realise that poetry can change according to the fashions and attitudes of that periods of time. Just like everything else, I have studied a selection of War poems from a period of time and I am going to compare the attitudes from those times.

  2. Comparing Poems from different cultures

    I think that the theme of loneliness reinforces the content of the poems as people usually listen more to people who are, in the case of Nothing's Changed, angry, and in Island Man, sad. In both poems, the poets meaning and opinions are conveyed to the reader in similar ways, in Island Man, I think that poets meaning and opinions could have been conveyed metaphorically, as he still almost asleep, and is in a daydream, through many subliminal messages in different phrases of the poem.

  • Compare My Grandmother and Long Distance - Best Words

    "In conclusion, the themes of family and death linked in both poems. Each poem is about a family member who died, and how they felt after. The authors also include similar emotions, such as obsession, however the obsession is focused on different topics. They also share the same feelings towards the members of their family because both authors stayed distanced from them; however it could also be argued that Harrison still felt a slight obsession to the "disconnected number" of his parents. The difference between the authors' is that they have different views towards death. Harrison clearly states he "believes life ends with death" perhaps showing us that he is an atheist. In contrast, Jennings is not an atheist, as many of her poems talk about religious experiences. Because of the points above, I believe that both these poems shared similar views on family and death, but they were expressed in different ways."
