I could recommend some books and ideas for you, and I do have some notes I would just have to type them up :)

It would be useful (but only if you're interested, it's a long book) to read Vera Britons Testament of Youth so you can get a good grasp of at least one of the female poets :)

also, I would recommend asking your local library for resources and they'll probably be happy to help you.

I have quotations, from WW1 poetry such as The Cenotaph, and lots of stuff by Wilfred Owena and Seigfried Sassoon. Charlotte Mew is another good one as well :)

So yeah, anything you were looking for in particular? As I have notes on quite a few poems

have any of you guys started the practice papers yet ??? i have ... i find the compairson of the poems harder than the unseen text - ive recently done one about Owens letter to his mother which i think was from may 2009 ? im not sure  but what i lose out on is not featuring context which ends up losing me marks and not pushing me to a grade no higher than a C. but i had to redo my coursework - :@ which wasnt good but in the end i managed to get my target grade ! yes!  so my main question is ... how would you guys go about answering an exam question making sure you have featured all AO's ??
