Question 16- 'Poetry is just another way the community espresses itself, and a community needs...to find an articulate voice for its sorrows and joys; to encapsulate its lives and histories'.
Consider this statement and compare and contrats the ways Plath and Larkin give voice to the concerns of th post-war comunity in their poems.

MCMXIV (1914)
Nick and the Candlestick

'Death is an ever present fact of life'. Consider the validity of this statement comparing and contrasting the extent to which Plath and Larkin present 'death as an ever present fact of life'.

Lady Lazarus

Edge

Dockery and Son

Question 5: Giving critical readings of your chosen poems compare and contrast the ways the poets write about parents and children. Aim to write about at least two poems by each poet.

Or Question 20.

Ariel: Daddy and another poem.

Whitsun Weddings: Dockery and Son.
Self's the Man. Faith Healing.

'Plath elaborated a personal symbolism and strained to breaking point the capacity of metaphor to give structure to a lyric poem.' Discuss the use of imagery in the poetry of Plath in Ariel, and Larkin in the Whitsun Weddings.'

Dockery &Son, Mr Bleaney and small references top Wild Oats.

Daddy, The Applicant

Thom Gunn; On The Move 'Man You Gotta Go.in reference to structure, and Anne Sexton in reference to unstructured

Im doing question 13,
in critical readings of 3- 4 poems compare and contrast attitudes and values of Plath & Larkin towards the opposite sex, exploring how the poets use language and poetic techniques to convey their ideas,
doing poems like sunny prestatyn.

Q20.'Far from being a haven of security where one may feel protected from the conflicts of the wider world, family life is fraught with conflict'.
Compare and contrast representations of family life in the poetry of Plath and Larkin to evaluate the validity of this statement.

Poems:
Plath- Morning Song & Daddy
with references to Lady Lazarus.

Larkin- Home is so Sad & Dockery and Son
with references to Talking in bed and possibly The Importance of Elsewhere.

Cheers all- there are some 'doubles' of poems here and not sure what Laura is up to, but this is looking good. Get writing and I'll see you Friday and then I'll post final versions on Saturday on here, as discussed.
