    I have compiled together a list of all the poems and themes that have come up in all available poetry past papers. This should give us a hint as to what poems we should revise more, however, we should still revise them all as anything could come up!

    Here is the list:

    2015 - Manhunt - damaged relationships
    OR Sister Maude - issues of trust

    2014 - Ghazal - use of form and structure to present ideas
    OR The Farmer's Bride - effect of endings

    2013 - Sonnet 116 - ideas about love
    OR Born Yesterday - hopes and wishes

    Jan13- Hour - ideas about time
    OR The Farmer's Bride - hopes and wishes

    2012 - Quickdraw - strong feelings about another person
    OR Praise Song for My Mother - language to present relationships

    Poems that haven't come up:

    In Paris with You, Brothers, Harmonium, Sonnet 43, To His Coy Mistress, Nettles, Born Yesterday.

    One conclusion we can make from this is that it is very likely that The Farmer's Bride will not come up for a third time in 2016, which is good, because it's long and nasty

    I heard brothers came up in the 2015 one and not manhunt
