Write about one of these titles in any way you wish (make a plan):
'Fantasy Land.'

How does the writer create mood and atmosphere:
How to be specific.
What not to write:
The writer uses alliteration in they have 'dug dozens of ditches'. This creates a dramatic effect as there are lots of violent plosive 'd' sounds.

What to write:
The writer personifies Mother Nature, to suggest that the war is so bad that even nature is being hurt, though she is large, like a goddess. Her emotions of being 'hurt' are juxtaposed with being 'angry' as if the 'sandstorms' are revenge. Hurting nature suggests the war is unnatural, against nature. However what the government is doing is worse. The writer uses plosives in 'black' smoke and 'burned' to show the violence being done to the country and the 'fire engine red' sky is a deep, angry shade, creating an air of menace, 'purple' like a bruise.

For the writing section:

Ask your teacher, what is the code of the exam that I am sitting in May/June please? Chemistry/Bio/Phys/Maths - if they won't tell you the code, as them what is the name and year of the spec we are following. Or you can ask them to recommend which past paper you should download.
