Question Four is such a pickle of a question. Students are thrown by the idea of writing about ‘methods’, thrown by the statement (should I agree? Should I disagree?) and then thrown by the bullet points. If you have students producing responses that are lacking in detail, I prescribe this treatment.

Love and Relationships

A

In this poem John Clare portrays falling in love for the first time.

First Love

I ne’er was struck before that hour
With love so sudden and so sweet.
Her face it bloomed like a sweet flower
And stole my heart away complete.
My face turned pale as deadly pale,
My legs refused to walk away,
And when she looked ‘what could I ail?’
My life and all seemed turned to clay.

And then my blood rushed to my face
And took my sight away.
The trees and bushes round the place
Seemed midnight at noonday.
I could not see a...

The Natural World

A

In this poem, John Deane describes a basking shark which is seen off Achill Island, off the Irish coast.

Basking Shark- Achill Island
Where bogland hillocks hid a lake
we placed a tom-cat on a raft; our guns
clawed pellets in his flesh until, his back
arched, the pink tongue bitten through, he drowned.
We fished for gulls with hooks we’d hide
in bread and when they swallowed whole we’d pull;
screaming they sheared like kites above a wild
sea; twine broke and we forgot. Until
that day we swam where a great shark...[ read full article ] »

Conflict and Power

A

This poem by W.B. Yeats looks at the experiences of a pilot in World War One

An Irish Airman Foresees His Death
I know that I shall meet my fate  
Somewhere among the clouds above; 
Those that I fight I do not hate  
Those that I guard I do not love; 
My country is Kiltartan Cross,
My countrymen Kiltartan’s poor, 
No likely end could bring them loss  
Or leave them happier than before. 
Nor law, nor duty bade me fight, 
Nor public man, nor cheering crowds,
A lonely impulse of delight

This poem, by Derek Mahon, is about Bruce Ismay, the President of the company which owned the ‘Titanic’. He survived when the ship sank in 1912.

After the Titanic

They said I got away in a boat
And humbled me at the inquiry. I tell you
I sank as far that night as any
Hero. As I sat shivering on the dark water
I turned to ice to hear my costly
Life go thundering down in a pandemonium of
Prams, pianos, sideboards, winches,
Boilers bursting and shredded ragtime. Now I hide
In a lonely house behind the sea

Youth and Age

A

In this poem, Billy Collins talks about death.

My Number

Is Death miles away from this house,
reaching for a widow in Cincinnati
or breathing down the neck of a lost hiker
in British Columbia?

Is he too busy making arrangements,
tampering with air brakes,
scattering cancer cells like seeds,
loosening the wooden beams of roller coasters
to bother with my hidden cottage
that visitors find so hard to find?

Or is he stepping from a black car
parked at the dark end of the lane,
shaking open the familiar cloak,
its hood raised...
