Grrrrr!

Good ideas for readers to consider but how can you make a claim for iambic rhythm, then add syllables when pronouncing words? It’s ‘ev’ry’, not ‘ev-e-ry’. There are other blunders, too, and the humour is too forced. There is to much interpolation for this to be valuable to students. It could be very misleading.

A must for GCSE students

This is an excellent way to help students initially engage in poetry. It is thought provoking and therefore suitable for the more able student too.
