Y12 homework to prepare for Poetry lesson 1 next week

Please prepare ahead for our first poem, ‘Whoso list to Hunt’, so this is due on Monday’s lesson.
Here is the Word document you need to print which contains an extract from ‘Wolf Hall’ whoso-list-discussed-in-bring-up-the-bodies

and a link to a Guardian article online , which we also suggest you print and stick into your exercise book.

Read these two documents and make notes on:
1) the plot of the poem,
2) who is it reputed to be about,
3) what kind of conceit Wyatt uses and the reasons for this.
4) Find out about Wyatt – who was he? When did he live? What type of writing is he famous for?

Mrs Sharp, Mrs Taylor and Ms Murphy 🙂
