I'm studying some of the poetry of Robert Frost for my AS level English Lit exam, so thought i'd create a thread for people doing likewise, to post any revision notes, discuss the poems or just to berate his work if you feel like it!

Hopefully, these will be able to help you guys
I did my AS last year.
Desert Places, After Apple Picking and Birches have already come up in exams, so I haven't included those notes as it's unlikely those poems will come up
If I find any more of my notes, I'll post them
If anyone has any specific requests, I'll see what I can do

Perfect! If you could upload Desert, Apple and Birches, in that I might use them to compare the selected poem with, that would be even better.

It may be a pain in the arse, but test essays are a really great method of revision. My advice is to write an essay on all of the poems (put after apple picking, desert places, and birches to the back of the queue; they've already come up on past papers). Revise from these essays, do all you can to memorise them and all the various things you can say about them. This worked for me last year

If there's anything else I can help with, just let me know I'm remembering a fair bit of AS stuff, so I'm always here

Hey, I was just wondering what you got in your AS level English, if you wouldn't mind saying? Thanks

Looking forward to the exam personally, although it could be because it's my last one out of the lot xD Still, Robert Frosts' poems' aren't that difficult to talk about. Infact, they're quite good to write an essay on. Word of advice though (as my teacher likes to say) be tentative with the ideas you formulate in the exam. What's your set text? Mine's Pride & Prejudice, Austen all the way! lol xD

Just looking through your amazingly helpful notes. Quick question about synaesthesia in 'Gathering Leaves'.

But the mountains I raise,
Elude my embrace,
Flowing over my arms

You've written 'Suggests he’s worked hard to gather so many leaves- symbol of size and power- synaestethics'

Is the synaesthesia in attempting to embrace the mountains with touch?

Thanks.

I found this essay which I have written about the Black Cottage. I think it will be unlikely for it to come up in the exam, but it may come in handy.

Enjoy

Yep, that's how I read it. It's a confusion of the senses. Also, the mountains 'flowing' may be considered an example of synaesthesia.

Thanks very much Lit2010, extremely helpful to add to my own revision. Please could you upload the notes for Desert Places, After Apple Picking and Birches as well just in case, if it isn't too much bother for you?

Cheers, good luck everyone taking these exams this Tuesday!

I can't find any notes for Desert Places, but I've attached the other two. I'm very sure they won't come up, though.
