Description

'That's my last duchess painted on the wall,
Looking as if she were alive. I call
That piece a wonder, now'

This lesson plan begins by explaining the context and meaning of the poem. Students then explore the theme of power, and how Browning's use of enjambment complements the assertiveness of the speaker.

'My Last Duchess' by Robert Browning is one of 15 poems in AQA's 'Power and Conflict' cluster in the latest GCSE English literature specification. Our lesson plan helps students become intimately familiar with the poem, its meaning and context.
