CRITICAL ANALYSIS TO 32 SONGS OF OURSELVES CIE - /AS POEMS.

This e-book, would among other functions help and encourage students writing the Poetry ,Paper 3 part of the CIE have a deeper appreciation and informed response to poetry .Incidentally, this section of the paper often poses a lot of challenges to most students and it is my hope that they would be guided by the analyses of all the poems set in the syllabus. For clarity and classification sake, each poem is analyzed under the following headings: Content/Form, Subject Matter/Themes, Sound Effects, Tone/Mood Atmosphere, Diction/Vocabulary and Imagery/Literary Devices. Based on experience and having taught the syllabus for more than 20 years, questions asked in the CIE do not exceed this range. With the inclusion of the poems, it would be easier for the reader/candidate to make quick reference and comparison where needed. LIST OF POEMS ANALYSED 1.
