‘Vergissmeinnicht’ means forget me not in German and helps show that this is about more than war, it's also about love. In this class, students will be introduced to Douglas’ use of language, form and structure in this poem included in the OCR GCSE Anthology in the section of ‘Conflict’. This is a great class for those who want to strengthen their poetry analysis skills and prepare for their GCSEs.
