Literary Study – Plath

Hello dears,

As you know, on Monday 29th August you will begin writing a Literary Study-style response to a question on Plath and the three questions we have studied so far. This is OPEN BOOK so you can have your plan in front of you, and will have an hour and a half in total.

Make sure your plan is completed for Monday, along with your DISSERTATION PROPOSALS.

Task

  • Using your notes on ‘Blackberrying’, ‘Sleep in the Mojave Desert’ and ‘Arrival of the Bee Box’, you are going to plan a response to the below question.
  • We will write this on Monday and Tuesdays lessons, totalling 90 minutes.

With reference to at least three poems by a particular poet, discuss the effectiveness of the poet’s use of nature and the natural world in the presentation of significant themes and ideas.
