Presentation Transcript

  1. Sister Maude Christina Georgina Rossetti

  2. Learning Objectives • AO1: respond to texts critically and imaginatively, select and evaluate textual detail to illustrate and support interpretations. • AO2: explain how language, structure and form contribute to writers’ presentation of ideas, themes and settings.

  3. Sister Maude • Who told my mother of my shame, Who told my father of my dear? Oh who but Maude, my sister Maude, Who lurked to spy and peer. • Cold he lies, as cold as stone, With his clotted curls about his face: The comeliest corpse in all the world And worthy of a queen's embrace. • You might have spared his soul, sister, Have spared my soul, your own soul too: Though I had not been born at all, He'd never have looked at you. • My father may sleep in Paradise, My mother at Heaven-gate: But sister Maude shall get no sleep Either early or late. • My father may wear a golden gown, My mother a crown may win; If my dear and I knocked at Heaven-gate Perhaps they'd let us in: But sister Maude, oh sister Maude, Bide you with death and sin.
