how are you meant to revise for poetry? I have an exam in a few weeks and have NO idea. I find that just reading notes is rather boring....
I hated revising for my poetry exam in January! Reading notes are boring- try reading them out to friends, discussing ideas, you might find you have different interpretations and that could help in a exam. You could also ask each other questions on them, colour code themes etc or make a list of themes and see which poems you would use if a question about that theme came. Also make sure you know which poems have links and writing practice essays can help.
Good luck :)
Im basically reannotating plain copies of the poem, esp the ones ive done a long time ago, and researching the context of each poem, authors attitude etc and just generally trying to know each poem inside out :) also, i bought a revision guide which im highlighting and stuff
If yuo really wanted to do well, you'd follow some of these ideas instead of doing nothing. Good luck in your exam LOL
Thank you, if anyone wanted to know I got an A in that exam :)
