INTRODUCTIONS:
Student's version:
The poet of this poem uses a number of literary devics to sucessfully capture the level of excitement he felt on his flight and conveys it to the audience.
Mistakes:
  1. which poem- mention the title
  2. has confused the poet with the persona- not always the same
  3. This is obvious and every poet will use literary devices- too general a comment


WRITING STYLE:
  • Always use the present tense when writing a commentary on prose or poetry
  • Avoid phrases such as 'alot of imagery/ large amount of imagery'- the first sounds childish and the second phrase is odd as imagery cannot be measured. Also every poet will use imagery so you are stating the obvious. Instead discuss the effect created by the use of imagery.
