Afterwards: Osbert Sitwell - 'The Next War'
Osbert Sitwell - 'The Next War'
See notes on previous page
- Discuss use of free verse and place in literary tradition (cf. date of composition)
- Explore fantastical elements of the verse (can link to horrific humour in Owen's 'The Last Laugh')
This Pathway is to be used for revision purposes, predominantly. Whilst the over-arching theme is ‘Afterwards,’ several further themes ('Disillusionment,' 'Memoirs,' 'Sacrifice') emerge and pupils should be encouraged to explore these.
The main aim of the Pathway is to enable pupils to draw connections between works. This is especially useful for those sitting the AQA Unit 6 paper, ‘Reading for Meaning.’ They should also be encouraged to analyse literature of different forms (poetry & prose), focusing on how the pieces fit in to literary tradition / the canon.
The tasks relating to the various sources are listed within the ‘Page Details’ section of the page. Feel free to add to these where necessary.
