Strategy for an unseen poem:
1) Look at the title ( what meaning/ideas does it suggest?)
2) Read 1st line-keywords-what do they tell you?
3) Read whole poem- are there linked words/phrases?
4) What thoughts and feelings are there? (look for emotive words!)
How to write about a poem:
Meaning >what is it about? any repeated ideas and or themes. (About the impact of... Conflict between... )
