Friday 25th January Analyse On Your Own... LO: To build on our knowledge of how to analyse poems. Level 6 Skills Level 7 Skills Now that we have discussed poetry analysis

Evaluation of how structure helps meaning
Connects context to meanings Alliteration- makes us emphasis these three words I'm back again from hell,
With loathsome thoughts to sell;
Secrets of death to tell;
And horrors from the abyss.
Young faces bleared with blood,
Sucked down into the mud,
You shall hear things like this,
Till the tormented slain
Crawl round once again
With limbs that twist awry
Moan out their brutish pain
As the fighters pass them by. To The Warmongers For you our battles shine
With triumph half-divine;
And the glory of the dead
Kindles in each proud eye.
But a curse is on my head,
That shall not be unsaid,
And the wounds in my heart are red,
For I have watched them die. Hell as a metaphor for the trenches Connotations of red : danger, passion Directly addresses those at home who think war is an adventure Chooses to use the word abyss, meaning endless, bottomless pit. Contrast emotive

ANNOTATE! 'Autumn' by Siegfried Sassoon Direct address, like a letter In your book, list as many RELEVANT facts about Siegfried Sassoon as you can remember. Things that would provide context about his poetry in an essay! October's bellowing anger breaks and cleaves
The bronzed battalions of the stricken wood
In whose lament I hear a voice that grieves
For battles fruitless harvest, and the feud
Of outraged men. Their lives are like the leaves
Scattered in flocks of ruin, tossed and blown
Along the westering furnace flaring red.
O martyred youth and manhood overthrown,
The burden of your wrongs is on my head.
Alliteration- makes us emphasis these three words I'm back again from hell,
With loathsome thoughts to sell;
Secrets of death to tell;
And horrors from the abyss.

With triumph half-divine;
And the glory of the dead
Kindles in each proud eye.
