IL3: Using one example from each, contrast the writing of the 19th and 20th centuries. (1000 – 2000 words)
I think I will use the following:
Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning: silent, bare,
Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.
Never did sun more beautifully steep
In his first splendour, valley, rock, or hill;
Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!
The river glideth at his own sweet will:
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
And all that mighty heart is lying still!
I will at least start - may search for other alternatives.
Haven't progressed much further as pc playing up a bit. Plus I have just found out that self, P1 & 2 are on Google maps.
266 words - but I think I will be better tomorrow :-)
