It was taken from http://www.loprez.pl/liceum/pliki, but I think you'd have to dig deeper to actually find it. They really helped me with my IOC. Remember, this is only one way to analyze poetry, you may be used to different scheme and find this one illogical, or it may help you finally perfect your method of presenting your analysis.
Hello, I am sure some of you writing your exams in the next few months or the next year will find this helpful. I am writing to ask how to further improve my poetry analysis skills before the exam. When I read a poem, here is how I approach the commentary: 1) I read it again 2) I look for the main idea 3) I note down any aspects I see fit the following categories: speaker, setting, structure, tone, title, themes, literary devices 4) I then construct my thesis statement, and essay outline 5) I write my commentary I have read through many past HL and SL poems and done some analysis on them to practice. However, I usually find my interpretation off or inaccurate to other individual's essays. And also, my interpretation does not fully meet the requirements of an excellent essay on the marking scheme. I was wondering what I could do to improve it? I am writing my IB HL English exam in May 2016. Many thanks.
