Description

With his superlative ability to write about nature and natural forces, the beloved Irish poet Seamus Heaney describes how his family survived in a storm-ridden stretch of coastal land.

This lesson plan looks at Heaney's use of tense and enjambment to create effect. It ends with students writing a response to an essay-style question.

'Storm on the Island' by Seamus Heaney 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.
