    |If any. Got any faves from the AQA Anthology?

    I really liked Carol Ann Duffy, a very good poet. I also like a few of the first poems in Cluster 2. Like Half-caste, unrelated incidents, Search for my tongue.

    Do you still do 'hearts and partners'?

    I loved To His Coy Mistress by Marvell, and Armitage as well.

    The pre 1900 poems were good. I like sonnet 130, the laboratory, my lust dutchess and the carol anne duffy poem havisham, all these quite melancholy and bitter poems, but work really well. Sonnet 130 is just about love

    Inversnaid because I agree and it doesn't show an unhealthy obsession with psychopaths.

    Oh yeah, forgot about the Pre 1900 ones...I love "Sonnet" by John Clare [I think that's the name] and "Tichbourne's Elegy" by Tichbourne.

    I share the feeling!! That anthology was just the epitomy of boredom in all our English lessons..so glad I didn't choose to do either English next year.

    I do have one favourite though - "Nothing's Changed" in the 1st cluster.

    I did it last year and did Cluster 1 and some of Cluster 2. My favourites were Limbo (has anyone seen that video with the guy reading it - fairly amusing for about 10 seconds), Search for My Tongue, Havisham, Nothing's Changed and that one about the guy whose son died (can't remember the name). The only ones I didn't like were Island Man, Two Scavengers in a blah blah blah and Education for Leisure
