This is my response: In Futility and Come on, Come back, we see the results of wars past and wars future.Your parenthetical citation should come after the closing punctuation mark. (You should maintain double-spacing throughout your essay.) They entirely refused to have it in bed with them, or even in their room, and I had no more sense, so, I put it on the landing of the stairs, hoping it would be gone on the morrow.By chance, or else attracted by hearing his voice, it crept to Mr.Futility shows how war affects the living, how it makes them contemplate life, how it makes you question everything, particularly existence.In Come on, Come back, we see how war devastates the mind, how it leaves people longing for peace and salvation, even if they can’t remember what it is they have done or seen.The personas in the two poems are also different: Owen’s is a first-person narrative whereas Come on, Come back is third-person narrative.Owen’s use of a persona is helpful: it is insightful. This helps us empathise with him and gain an insight into his feeling of utter despair and despondency.When using short (fewer than three lines of verse) quotations from poetry, mark breaks in verse with a slash, ( / ), at the end of each line of verse (a space should precede and follow the slash).If a stanza break occurs during the quotation, use a double slash ( // ). I make sure I pick another poem that helps me answer the question. So I’m going to use words like nihilistic and existence because they’re better than any alternative I’ve come across. So, I know I need to explore the poems and analyse the language and/or structure and/or form. You’ve got 45 minutes to write about two poems, answering a given question, like this one: Compare how the results of war are shown in Futility and one other poem from Conflict I start by making sure I’ve written about both language and structure. I try to focus on the connections, not the differences. Usually, I’ve got the quotes highlighted before I even start. I need to make sure I have the right vocabulary to express what I think. I know what I need to show and I know if I can’t, I can’t get the full range of marks.
