I love Auden - but my year 12s struggled with 'Funeral Blues', so I doubt year 10s will get 'Musee des Beaux Artes'.
Māori Jesus is one of my favourite Baxters and I have an awesome recording of it so it is definitely a potential.
I would have loved it too. I think we'll see how it goes. I am keen to start it off with what mythology means, what they know and personal mythologies - so autobiographical creative writing, in a myths and legends style. And then look at New Zealand mythology, before broadening the perspective.
But we'll see. I have to cover grammar and formal writing and response to text and reading for meaning and speeches and all sorts of stuff in amongst this.
