Trip – Wednesday 8 th Feb Period 2 – period 4. GFT to see Coriolanus Will help tidy up ‘Macbeth’ essay.
Checklist so far. Name: Read over work carefully In introduction number your 5 key points (see wall) Summary – have you said why Fergal Keane wrote this letter? What did you say? Paragraph 3 – how many quotations have you made? What comments/analysis have you made. Could you say more? What? Repeat process for paragraph 4. Do you have topic sentences at the start of each paragraph? Could these be improved? Have you used link words – however, moreover, furthermore on the other hand…
Paragraph 5 This will focus on section 2 of the letter You must mention the word ‘anecdotes’ in this section if you have not done so already. How do these anecdotes evoke the theme of love or regret or both. Why is the metaphor ‘your eyes had become waterfalls’ so poignant
Paragraph 6 This will analyse the final section starting ‘I was too young to understand…’ You could comment on the narrative voice – one of reflection. Keane evokes the emotion of regret very powerfully in the final lines by use of hyperbole.
Topic sentences In the second section of this letter Keane goes on to give a series of anecdotes which emphasis the powerful emotions of love and regret… ‘Tell her I love her’ Father’s unrequited love reveals his lonliness ‘Christmas that year’ – sentence structure emphasises how much he can remember. This reveals this was important to him.
Section 3 Fergal Keane finishes his letter with a reflective tone which reveals the extent of his regret and loss ‘drifting closer to darkenss’ – euphemism Repetition of ‘gave up’ emphasises that Keane’s father was not the only person to ‘give up’. Fergal Keane had himself given up on his dad.
