   Other Guidance
      • When quoting poetry that is more than a line, set it out as follows:
   ‘Why did the great lord find me out,
   And praise my flaxen hair?’

   It has to be written as it appears in the poem not like:
   ‘Why did the great lord find me out, And praise my flaxen hair?’

   You get good marks for incorporating one word into a sentence e.g. ‘outcast’.
   REMEMBER QUOTATION MARKS “outcast” or ‘outcast’.
   Single or double speech marks - either is fine as long as you are consistent
   throughout.

      •     Stanza not verse!
      •     You should not quote more than about two lines at a time – don’t put in full
            stanzas!
      •     Don’t confuse ‘no’ and ‘know’, ‘Ashamed’ and ‘shamed’, ‘weren’t’ and
            wasn’t’, ‘choose’ and ‘chose’.
      •     Don’t use sub- headings e.g. Introduction, verse 1 etc.
      •     Don’t mistake Rossetti for the ‘cottage maiden’, use narrator or cottage
            maiden instead.
      •     Don’t use the term ‘dumping’ for the casting aside of the cottage maiden.
      •     The baby is a boy – nephew not niece.


   Structure
      •     Your essay should include:
               o An introduction into the time when the poem was set.
               o Then close analysis of the poem in relation to the question set and
                  poetry as a whole – looking for poetic devices, language etc.

          o Then a detailed conclusion – finally answering the question.
