Please help with Duffy poetry

I have a english lit exam on thursday, and don't understand most of Duffy's poetry. Doing the OCR exam if that helps. Any notes or tips or revision or anything else would be really helpful

answer, before you were mine, brothers, dream of a lost friend, head of english, in mrs tilscher's class, in your mind, liar, mrs lazuras, nostalgia, stealing, the good teachers, war photographer, who loves you, wintering. I only have to answer a question on one of them, but i would like to at least vaguely understand them all. Really appreciate the help

I have Carol Ann Duffy: hour and quickdraw analysis and it goes through subject, themes, messages, emotions, moods, feelings, techniques used, form and structure, effects on reader. Its still analysis on those poems even though I do AQA relationships cluster. Click on me and have a luck!

Maddie,

I would like to help.  I am a Secondary School teacher.  I have covered all the Duffy poems in the form of 10 minute podcasts on each poem.  They are focussed entirely on what you will need to comment on in the exam - language, structure and form - based on the OCR mark scheme criteria.   If you would like me to send you copies of the podcasts then email me - [email protected]

All the best!
