G.C.S.E English and English Literature Coursework Poetry Assignment Ess
G.C.S.E English and English Literature Coursework Poetry AssignmentWe energise been set the projection to compare the ways in which the poems Ihave studied deal with the passing of time. The three poems are Tohis Coy Mistress, Ozymandias and To the Virgins to Make Much of sequence. All three of the poems clearly deal with the passing of time in contrasting ways. To his Coy Mistress is about a man telling a womanthat if he had all the time in the world, he would spend it with her.In the To the Virgins to Make Much of Time a man is trying to convey a woman to make much of her youth with the time she is given.Ozymandias is about time in a different way by saying no tyranny tummybeat time like the statue in the poem. This poem is different to Tohis Coy Mistress and To the Virgins to Make Much of Time. Its nonabout love or anything else to do with the other poems but the passingof time.In the To his Coy Mistress by Andrew Marvell the poet wants topersuade his coy mistress to have a fi scal relationship with him.Marvell splits the poem into three different stanzas, each one with adifferent purpose. The first stanza is an introduction, Marvell speaksabout what he wants to do with the Mistress, he speaks about time, andhow it is not on their side. The second stanza introduces that time istheir enemy he uses fear in this dent to try and persuade her. Andin the final section he changes the person in which he writes in henow talks about we, he speaks about how when the couple are togetherthey can tackle the problem of time. This is very well thought outbecause it is clear what he wants, he splits up the stanzaseffectively and makes the whole picture clear in your head, and thisis a... ...o are aboutsomeone who has most of hers yet to come. However they use differenttactics to show the passage of time to the reader, and explore howtime lasts as long as a person does. The poets both use day tones tohelp them convey this, they are day the time that has or pass on pass. InOzymandias the day is for something that was once hugely impressivebut over time has deteriorated into nothing, whilst in the other twopoems the mourning is for something that over time to come will lapseinto nothingness persons life.I thought that Ozymandias was the most speak toing. I think thisbecause its different to the other two poems and sometimes differentis better. It shows use that even if something is hugely impressive,over time it will deteriorate into nothing. I think it shows this in avery effective way and could appeal to many different people.
