English II: How to Improve Your Answers for Poetry (TIPS)


One of our readers, Srushti, had the following question:

 

Hi. I always lose marks in the poetry section so can you give me some pointers for that?

 

In reply, we gave her the following tips which we feel might help all of our readers, as well.

 

  1. Incorporate certain verses that are important, i.e. play a key part in relating the message/essence of the poem, in your answer. Ask your teacher, or go through the poetry workbooks to get an idea regarding the same.
  2. Mention the various symbolisms used in the poem and use the same to answer the question asked.
  3. Focus on the themes of the poem, as well. These are usually mentioned in the workbooks (if not, ask your teacher for help).
  4. Underline the key vocabulary words used in the workbooks, and try to incorporate these words in your answers to make them more precise and relevant. Underline them in your answers, as well. 

 

Hope these tips help! Do share your feedback on the same. Have you been using these already? Or do you happen to have more to share? Make use of the Comments section below to let us know. 🙂
