Porphyria’s Lover extension task – treasure hunt!

In the library at the far end on the right, there is a section containing magazines. If you can locate the English Review Vol. 20 Number 4 April 2010 (p.21) , you will find an article about this poem. This will give you a taste of A-level critical study.

I will give a chocolate bar to the person who can post a comment with the answers to the following:

  1. What does it say about the line in the poem ‘I found a thing to do’ (p.23)
  2. What happens to the pace and rhythm in lines 50-1 (p.23) and what is its effect
  3. What point is made about the cheerless grate (p.22)
