I have been given two possible questions for the in-class exam and my teacher did not explain the questions properly as he pretty much said "how does the context reflect context" but the hsc syllabus says how does the structure, form and features used by the composers denote the contexts or how contexts influences their perspective etc.

The questions are:
a) how does the treatment of heritage in Dubliners and Heaney's poetry reveal the similarities or reinforce the text's distinctive qualities? In your response make detailed references to your prescribed texts.

b) An exploration of intertextual perspectives reveals the relationship between context and key values. Discuss this view with detailed reference to your prescribed text.
