Yesterday, after school, I had my usual little revision session and the year 10 students in the group have a mock exam on the Anthology coming up. They wanted to know how to revise effectively and how to structure the essay. So, armed with the cards we got started. We filtered through the cards, discounting the poems that had not been studied, used the index of comparison on the back of the title card to decide which theme to focus on. Then, I discussed what the essay structure should look like.

Remains is a first-person poem from the perspective of a solider, that is generally seen as split into two halves. In the first, he describes a memory of which he and two other killed looters raiding a bank, and in the second he explains how the memory of this still haunt his and has suggestions of PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

So, the idealism of Greek art and the individualism of Roman art come together to create an art piece that. Though there are many elements to compare and contrast, my analysis will show that both pieces are tributes and representations of Dionysos meaning and purpose in Roman art. The Hope Dionysos, displayed in the Metropolitan Museum of Arts Greek and Roman Art gallery, depicts Dionysos standing and leaning with one arm on a smaller female figure that is believed to Spes, the personification of hope.
