Bess’s father is furious that his innocent daughter has been so tragically killed. But who is to blame for her death? He takes Tim, The Highwayman and the King’s soldiers to court. You have to persuade the jury who is guilty, giving reasons from the events that unfolded in the poem.

 

Who is guilty? Why are they guilty?

Tim

  • Tells the king’s soldiers where the highwayman will be – puts Bess in danger.
  • Jealous of that Bess and the highwayman are in love.
  • He is survived whilst Bess and the Highwayman are both dead.

 

Highwayman

  • Was an outlaw and involved Bess in his criminal life.
  • Put her in danger by meeting up with her.
  • Risked her life by arranging to meet her when he is a wanted man.

 

 

King’s Soldiers

  • Harassed Bess and tied her up.
  • Gave her the gun, which she used to kill herself.
  • Forced her to kill herself to warn the highwayman.

 

Task: Write a persuasive statement for the jury. Explain which of the 3 suspects you think are guilty and why. Who is guilty? You decide. Is it Tim? The Highwayman? Or the King’s soldiers?

 

Success criteria

  • I have used evidence from the poem to explain who I think is guilty
  • I have used conjunctions to help link my points I have used formal language
  • I have used rhetorical questions to make the jury think
