In this class Rosie will talk you through how to examine how a poem’s form, structure, language and context can shape its meaning. This framework for analysis can help you approach any unseen poem and examine it through a more critical lens which will give students the tools and confidence to tackle poetry in lessons and exams.
This class encapsulates how students should approach a poem, either seen or unseen, with the particular tools needed to discover meaning on many levels.
