don't ask me anything hard please
English A level, that is.
Instead of an interview to uni I've been given two poems to discuss the relationship of. 'The Deserter' by A.E. Housman and 'O what is that sound' by W.H. Auden. Any...you know...knowledge of these?
Is that not cheating? And ending a sentence with a preposition? They will not put up with this!
isn't a preposition, just part of the prepositional phrase 'of these'
I was referring to the sentence ending with 'of'.
It's just learning. If I had someone write the essay for me, yes, blatant cheating.
ask again in 3 years
then I'll have an english degree. Fun times.
Drums, war (the folly of), soldiers, strict rhyming schemes in simple, nursery-rhymish four line stanzas, the strength of love in extreme situations, betrayal... go freestyle on this stuff. Anything you write that is remotely interesting about these things will serve you better than churning out whatever you think they want or copying what some half-hearted people on a message board think.
The part about writing what I found interesting. I was focusing far too much on whether my interpretation was correct. thanks bbz!
there'll be loads of people in the same position and equal amounts of people wanting to show off their knowledge.
