    I am doing Blake, but am investigating Keats to broaden my ideas on Romantic poetry - mm find him quite exaggerated. Immersion with nature, expansion of imagination r not rlly my kind of thing :0. Just get an a2 revision book like York notes - should cover it fairly well. It may also help if you do not do classics 2 look up what the Gods r he mentions. Reading it out loud is also easier - if i remember a lot of his poems r heroic couplets? c.f neo-classical?

    Aye I am studyin Othello 2 - Our teacher left coincidence or what , and we had already started a Women Romantics Anthology - thx god we ended that ! V tedious, and not particularly well written Othello we stopped at A3S3 so I cannot really discuss it for 1-2 months. Other than that Gatsby c.f Howards End and War Synopsis

    Doing Keats. Crazy Pantheist that he is. Isabella & the pot of basil was a truly awful poem, one of his earlier ones and the only one we've studied so far. I've flicked ahead and he gets better...thankfully. Anything is better than Snow Falling On Cedars...so much of that book is unneccessary! I really love Othello though, I'm so glad we're doing it this year

    I'm doing keats, othello and war poetry for aqa. I had the keats and othello mock a week ago, it was terrible! I agree othello is great, it's better than hamlet, which we studied last year, which was so depressing, and i was always made to read hamlet's speech!! Not fair!

    am doin the same ones as you! i have to say, Keats is not my favourite topic this yr...find the war texts much more intresting and emotive! ... loving othello though!
    the keats york notes is good...and also...
    http://www.sparknotes.com/poetry/keats/
    it mainly analyses the odes...fairly basic but makes them more understandable and manageable!
    hope it helps
