English literature revision materials :D

Showing 1 to 25 of 38

Ok everyone :D

We are all scared for our english literature exams on thursday so i have taken a bit of time to scan some poems in for last minute revision.

If you would like to make suggestions on which poems you would like to study just ask and i will see if i have it and if needed i will upload it for you.

(Also if anyone has any revision resources on the relationships poems, PLEASE, PLEASE, upload them as i have searched and cannot find much analysis on them at all)

So yes, just ask if you need some help as i do have resources on SOME of the poems which we have studied just say the name.

And good luck all :D

Are you referring to the relationships cluster? If so, could I please have some tips on 'The Farmer's Bride' and 'To His Coy Mistress' - they're so confusing!

Thank you ever so much!

I have loads of ideas on Sonnet 43 and Nettles if you want them, they're not resources though.

Posted: 22-05-12 17:27 by Cheryl_285

Sonnet 43:

ANAPHORA used - repetition of 'I love' throughout the sonnet shows the amount of love the speaker has, and conveys many different sides of it.

'With my lost Saints' refers to religion - the speaker is committed to their lover in the same way as she used to be committed to religion.

'Being and Ideal Grace' - the lover is represented as God, which shows that the speaker views him as a superior being and not just a person.

Starts of with rhetorical question - makes it personal and direct  ('thee') and highlights the depth of her love.

Fifth line implies that the speaker feels that their lover is an essential need for everyday life ie. a source of breathing.

'Most quiet need' - speaker loves without expecting anything in return - just the lover's presence is enough to make her more than content.

Last line shows eternal, ongoing love.

Sorry for layout - hope these notes helped! ***

Btw, these notes are BRIEF - they obviously need expanding on and more analysis to get the marks.
