SECTION A POETRY,QUESTION 1 PRESCRIBED POETRY ESSAY QUESTION. The Garden of Love William Blake, In a well planned essay of 250 300 words about ONE page discuss how the poet. used the TITLE IMAGERY and PUNCTUATION to help create the MOOD of the. TITLE The title proves to be ironic Initially it creates the expectation that the. poem will be a love poem that it will describe the delights of a literal or figurative. garden but it is not It is the opposite Thus the irony of the title creates the. sombre mood of the poem, IMAGERY The poem has three stanzas There is a development in each one. In the first stanza the speaker returns to a green garden in which he used to. play It suggests pleasant times even Innocence In the second stanza the. garden has been replaced with a forbidding Chapel Its doors are shut and no. entry is allowed into the Chapel The green garden has been replaced by a. Chapel that cannot be entered Figuratively the freedom of the garden has been. restricted by the Chapel s presence The image of a chapel that instructs Thou. shalt not suggests that the Church has become hostile it no longer provides a. green garden The mood changes from a pleasant one to one of enmity In the. last stanza the images of graves tomb stones and black gowns are in direct. contrast to the green garden of the first stanza The priests in black gowns are. ominous and threatening Instead of sweet flowers there are now binding. briars that cause pain The presence of the Chapel and the Priests has created. a malevolent mood, PUNCTUATION The use of capital letters in the first stanza shows that the.
Garden probably is a reference to the Garden of Eden it is a figurative garden. that has familiar connotative ambiguous meanings The Chapel that has. replaced the Garden is also capitalised it indicates the Church and her powers. rather than a small place of worship The phrase Thou shalt not ends in a full. stop in the middle of the line to highlight the finality of the command The use of. capital letters and the full stop in the middle of the line add to the stifling mood. the church will not allow freedom such as a garden would give a child in which. to play That innocence is prohibited which helps create an oppressive mood.

QUESTION 6 ESSAY QUESTION THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY. In a carefully planned essay of 400 450 words 2 2 pages in length critically. discuss to what extent Dorian Gray s character shaped his life. NOTE This is a guide Consider other relevant answers. To a large degree Mostly Dorian s life and death turns out to be of his. own making, As a young and innocent man Dorian Gray is strikingly beautiful He is. made aware of his exceptional beauty by Lord Henry whose flattering. remarks are supported by Basil Hallward who paints a portrait of Dorian. that confirms how beautiful he is, When Dorian realises how beautiful he is his own beauty came on him. like a revelation Lord Henry s warning that his beauty will not last is a. sharp pang of pain He is enchanted by his own beauty and also. enchanted by Lord Henry who opens up a new world that is based purely. on the appreciation of beauty and outward appearance. Lord Henry leads a debauched life He professes that when we are good. we are not always happy Dorian is strongly attracted to this philosophy. and sets out to live a life based on enjoyment and pleasing himself. without much regard for the consequences, Dorian gradually immerses himself into the hedonistic lifestyle. According to Lord Henry the only way to get rid of temptation is to yield. to it and it is exactly what Dorian does He believes that he can do what. he wants because he retains his beautiful youthful looks he does not. age Why would he be good if he gets away with being bad. The argument that Dorian is the victim of Lord Henry s manipulation does. not hold water Dorian chooses to follow Lord Henry s example He is. entranced by his own beauty and the wish that he will not age is enough. to spur him on to lead a degenerate life Lord Henry does influence. Dorian at first but Dorian eventually makes life choices without Lord. Henry s involvement, While he is not looking at the painting he can do what he wants This. includes murdering Basil enticing Adrian Singleton into opium addiction. without any accountability blackmailing Alan Campbell and indulging in. dubious activities that he hides from his society friends. Basil is a good person whose love for Dorian is obvious and true He. wants what is best for him and shows concern when he sees Lord. Henry s undue influence on Dorian Yet Dorian remains unmoved by. Basil s presence, Sibyl Vane probably loved Dorian He rejects her when she does not.
perform in a way that pleases him He is callous in the way that he deals. The languages are all South African which makes the poem South African The wardens speak Afrikaans They represent Apartheid and the reason many prisoners are in jail Language is used for communication In this case the prisoners had designed their own sign language to communicate secretly They were not allowed to do so
