Thought bubble

 

In this activity, we will be jogging your memory by comparing the content of 'My Last Duchess' with the poems you best see fit, out of the options given. 

 

Before we begin, here's a quick list of the key content you could talk about and use to compare with other poems:


Jealousy
Arrogance
Control
Murder
Sex
Power

 

You can definitely think of any other themes which you think Browning uses, as long as you have the evidence to show that it is a recurring topic in the poem!

Remember: take your time, as there's no rush and make sure to jot down any explanations which you find helpful!

 

You should always refer to your own text when working through these examples. These quotations are for reference only.
